    My Collection and It's Future

    I'd like to think I have a well-balanced watch collection at my price point, but I was wondering what you would suggest moving into for the future of my collection.

    One thing to consider is that I would prefer to consolidate my collection to 7 and I would also prefer to not spend more than $1000 more.

    I have considered selling the modded SKX007 or/and Seiko 6106-6439 for something German, perhaps a german aviation watch or a Hamilton, perhaps field or aviation.

    Lastly, I know I need an automatic chronograph.

    That being said, what would make this watch collection more balanced or what am I missing?

    PS - the SARB035 stays and I forgot to take off the SARB033 on Hodinkee strap from my wrist before taking photo.

    I'm a big fan of the Sinn Flieger for a German pilot but that's going to cost north of 1k.

    Take a look at the Glycine Airman. Those are pretty nice watches and a 24 hour bezel.

    Glycine is an interesting suggestion. The Airman looks nice. Any recommendations on model. I try to stay under 41mm.

    Glycine Airman Double 12 — fantastic watch, amazing value at GM pricing, excellent OEM strap, highly legible, good lume, really well regulated movements (mine kept quite accurate time around +3-4 spd). The dual time bezel is solid, legible, and works so well with the Arabic numerals on the dial. I’m not great with 24-hour dials or 24-hour GMT hands, so a dual time bezel is my preference, and I found the Glycine remarkably easy to read at a glance.

    I’d keep the Rolex the 035, the Omega and the 007 - it’d be open season on the others.

    I would keep the Datejust, SKX007, Seamaster and the SARBs.

    With that in the box, I would have in mijn shortlist:

    G Shock square
    Damasko DA34/DA36 (have and love the DA34)
    Sinn 358 or an Omega Speedmaster Reduced, to be upgraded to a Speedmaster Professional in the future
    Then save up for a nicer diver to ad. Or instead of adding, walk this upgrade path, maybe skip a step or call it a day halfway: Squale 1521/Oris 65/Omega 2254/Breitling SOH/Rolex Sub.
