    New watch for the new year

    Hello. Im looking for a new watch for the new year. I really need help deciding, and ideas. I like the Hamilton Pan Europ a lot. I really like the vintage Speedmaster Mark series. Some of the Breitling Colts. Those are the few I like quite a bit. My budget is $1000- $1500 or so, but can go a bit more if need be.
    I have an Omega Seamaster 300m
    And Porsche Design Dashboard, as well as many other vintage watches. Total of 21 watches. I really like vintage chronographs, but any ideas will be appreciated.

    I really like Panerai too, but I'm only 15, so it would be nice of someone could just give me theirs!

    The Pan Europ is a nice choice if you want a chronograph. If you could flip some of the vintage stuff and grab a preowned Speedmaster Professional, I like that idea better though. A Stowa Flieger is a great choice that is well within your budget. Personally, I don't find the Breitling Colt to be a very inspired choice.

    Make a plan of where you want your collection to go, and focus your efforts down that road. Don't buy stuff just to buy something. I agree with the above suggestion to thin the herd and increase your budget.

    Thank you both very much. I think that would be a good idea. What do you think is the best way to sell of some watches?

    Hopefully someone will give you their Panerai, but failing which I think the Hammy or Speedy are good choices. I'm not a fan of the Breitling Colt, but you're not me.

    Sell them in the sales corner here, or on ebay if you like.

    The Speedy is the obvious choice that would be selected by many. I hate running with the crowd so I would go with the Hamilton.

    PS - 20 watches at 15 years old? Wow. (I agree sell some that don't get much wrist time and fund your new purchase that way).

    PPS - I have a Panerai and you're not having it.

    Vintage Speedy Mark... would be my choice:



    If the right one comes along, I hope to add one of these this year:

    I really like that CW. The brand is new to me. I will probably pick one up.
    As of right now, Im looking at the Speedy. Are there any Breitlings you guys like in my $$$ range?
