    My 24 piece collection is complete, which one is your favorite?

    I admit, these are not high-end watches. The most expensive one is my brand new Longines.
    But to me, each is special and unique for some reason. Many of these are not available here in the US market and I bought them either online or during my travels.

    I'd be interested in which one stands out the most to you guys?

    It's great that they all mean something to you so congratulations on having a collection with substance. The Longines stands out to me though as it oozes quality and class and is (in my eyes) the best looking watch you have.

    Thanks, and yes, absolutely they all mean something and I can recall the circumstances of lusting after and purchasing each. Each one, without exception, has a little personal story and a nice memory.

    Here is a vague list (from left to right) without specific model numbers:

    1 G shock (2005)
    2 G shock (atomic solar)
    3 G shock (2012)
    4 G shock
    5 G shock (Maharishi limited)
    6 G shock (Japan import)
    7 G shock (bluetooth 2015)
    8 G shock (atomic solar tide graph)
    9 Timex chrono
    10 Timex
    11 Citizen (atomic solar, Japan import)
    12 Citizen (atomic solar)
    13 Bulova precisionist
    14 Edifice 200m diver
    15 Casio tide graph
    16 Edifice
    17 Edifice (square, don't like it)
    18 Fortis colors
    19 Orient Mako
    20 Orient Flight (with Mako bracelet)
    21 Longines conquest 41mm
    22 Swiss quartz (custom made for a work event)
    23 Glasshutte (ca. 1960)
    24 Seiko 5

    My favourite by far is the plastic Fortis diver, I've always liked those, not in a small way due to the fact that they are a bit iconoclastic. I bet many people think that this is nothing but brand tarnishing but I love when a company dares to do something funky, something against the best business judgement ... and it's a good looking watch to boot!

    I really like the G shock (bluetooth 2015). Looks like a Bronze/Orange tone on my screen. The whole collection Looks great!!!

    I like the Timex Field Watch. But, the Glashutte isn't too shabby either. This is mine:

    The Orient Flight is a great looking Tool watch...looks similar to the Hammy Khaki I have.
