    New Photos of my 4-watch collection + the 5th?

    I took a couple of amateur shots of my 4-watch collection this weekend after replacing my Speedy bracelet with a black leather strap. I actually have a 5th watch - my grandfather’s vintage Seamaster - which is with Omega but I suspect it is beyond restoration. Thought I would share.



    I don’t wear my Bedat much so usually rotate the Transocean, PAM and Speedy. Here are some watches I am considering as my next and 5th to slot into the rotation. Would love thoughts and opinions!

    A simple and clean white Mark XVIII


    The must have Subc


    Other watches I like and think about a lot...






    THANKS FOR READING!

    For sure. However I wonder if i should buy one of the others for less than half the price of the Sub and save the Sub for a special occasion purchase.

    I'm tempted to say IWC, but... every collection should probably have a dive watch... with an actual rotating bezel. Sub or smp then. But really I'd get a something that's not as ubiquitous as that. Maybe a doxa or something.

    Everyone needs a pilot watch, but I'd get the Sub first. Nice collection btw...

    Get rid of the Breitling (redundant with--but doesn't match up to--your Speedy), replace it with the Sub (pros: diver, rotating bezel, and well, it's a Sub) and the IWC (pros: pilot and light dial--you have neither).

    Can’t. It’s only a few months old and I absolutely love it. I waited a long time to buy a Breitling that was the right size for my wrist. But I get your point.

    Totally. That’s why the Subc and the SMPc are on the wishlist I know they are popular and common but there is a good reason for that. I definitely want to get one out of hose two for my first rotating bezel.

    Thanks. And agree on Pilot watch. What are some other ones you would look at sub 40 mm?
