    A One Brand Collection

    Since I've just picked up a second Omega, the thought has crossed my mind to make them the centre of my developing collection. There will be others of course (Zenith and JLC is definitely on the top of the list), but maybe my calling is as an Omega collector. Plenty of time.

    My question is, what 5-10 watches from any manufacturer would make a well-rounded collection?

    For example, Omega (funny that):
    1. Speedmaster Pro (Chrono)
    2. Seamaster PO (Diver)
    3. Ploprof (Even more diver)
    4. Vintage 565 Seamaster (Dress)
    5. Aqua Terra (Anywhere)
    6. 1960s/70s Seamaster 300 w/ 552 movement (Vintage Military)

    Secondly, if you are someone who has a collection from one particular brand - some pics are in order!

    Get a vintage Seamaster Chrono with a Soccer dial. I like the white/red/black version over the green/red/black myself. It looks like it's a NASA rocket.

    You can only expect Seiko from me.

    Currently available models....

    1: Grand Seiko SBGH019 - Hi-beat Special in White gold. For when you've got somewhere special to go.
    2: Ananta SPS007J1 - Purty Chrono with Spring Drive mechanism. A good daily wearer.
    3: Prospex 'Emperor Tuna' SBDX011 - Serious watch that sums up what a Seiko diver is.
    4: Presage SARX014 - Nice plain 3 hander that could pull anything off. A good work-day watch.
    5: Seiko 5 SNZG13 - For getting your hands dirty.

    Re: A One Brand Collection

    Oops...........Domo beat me to it while I was writing this post.

    All comparatively expensive brands mentioned till now. I would like to say SEIKO.

    1. Monsters. Too many of them. If I had to choose one, I would go with the original Black Monster.
    2. Marinemaster. Ideally the auto but the quartz is as good IMHO.
    3. Sumo or if you like blue, the Blumo.
    4. SPORK..you can't have a Seko collection without this one.
    5. Bullhead. If you can find an auto in good condition, otherwise the new quartz like the SCEB009.
    6. SARB Series. My favourite being the SARB045.
    7. BFS. My favorite is the SNKF05.
    8. Alpinist. SARB017.
    9. Samurai. My favourite is the SNM031.
    10. Grand Seiko. Foe affordable, look for a pre pened vintage.

    I would call the above a good, representative Seiko Collection. I have posted pictures of lots of my Seikos in a thread on another forum. I think I will start a similar thread here too.

    Re: A One Brand Collection

    Interesting thread, +1 like lol. I have been seriously considering going down a similar route with Citizen. I have other watches, so it wouldn't be a solely Citizen collection.....but I may snag a few more to round out a decent set of them :)

    Not sure I could do it. Maybe a 3 brand collection , no, no even that's unrealistic for me . . . . .

    Re: A One Brand Collection

    I'd set up a collection based around the original, American Hamilton. That's probably no surprise.

    1. Hamilton Pinehurst (AGN Dial) - One of the best-looking watches ever made.
    2. Hamilton Cushion Engraved (AGN Dial) - I own this watch. Such a lovely piece.
    3. Hamilton K-455 - I also own this one. It was my grandfather's watch.
    4. Hamilton Rutledge - Because this collection wouldn't be complete without a platinum Hamilton. I'd pick one of the earlier versions, which had a platinum buckle, as opposed to white gold, which came later.
    5. Hamilton 992B - Iconic railroad pocket watch, with one of the best American movements.
    6. A Hamilton equipped with the 770. While I have no experience with this movement, it's widely regarded as being the best wristwatch movement Hamilton ever made. Aesthetically, I prefer other Hamilton movements, but the 770 is still very pretty.

    I could throw an electric, an asymmetric, or any number of models from the mid twenties to the end of the sixties into the mix, but I think this is a well-rounded collection that I could be extremely satisfied with.
