    Which one to keep?

    I started collecting watches at the first of the year with no real theme as to what I purchased. Like it, buy it, was pretty much the criteria used.

    After discovering vintage watches I decided that would be my focus and now I'm looking to add my grail vintage so I need to clear some of my earlier purchases out to raise funds. These were all priced within a few hundred dollars of each other and all have boxes and paperwork so they are all pretty equal in that regard. They are 39mm Rainbow to 43mm Planet Ocean in size. The only one that is not all stainless is the Armand Nicolet which has an 18k gold bezel with stainless case. Edit: Breitling has gold riders.

    I rarely wear the same watch more than once a week and whichever one I keep will see once a week wrist time.

    If you had to pick one to keep which would be your choice and why?

    I'm not a Chrono man so I'd keep the PO - it's a very versatile piece, IMO. Still, nice watches, every one of them - and a nice problem to have!

    I like the 2531 pictured. It's classic.

    Re: Which one to keep?

    In terms of looks and practicality I would keep the Omega 300M, as on its bracelet I think it can go with pretty much whatever you are wearing. However overtime I have come to the conclusion there is little point in automatic watches where you cannot see the movement. If you are going to put it in a case where you cannot see it then quartz is cheaper to buy, cheaper to service and more accurate. As such I would actually probably keep the Armand Nicolet.
