    I suspect that most on here have many watches but you might get lucky with further posts.

    Balldy on the Ball forum has just one watch--a Ball Aviator--pretty sure he won't mind me sharing his last "WRUW" post:

    "Still going - worn 99.5% of the days since January 2009 "

    This is hard to understand for me if I just wore one watch for years, and didn't care about other watches, I probably wouldn't bother participating in the forums any more.... Not a judgement or criticism said in any sort of negative way, just an observation about myself.

    I think most would agree with you--Balldy is a great guy, and a fairly regular contributor to the Ball forum--he has authored some interesting threads (such as a long term study on the daily variances on the accuracy of his watch over a several month period, and was a co-winner of a Ball watch review contest--for which he won another Ball, and while he gamely tried to wear it, never really could get away from his Aviator, for which he did the review on). I actually greatly admire him--an avid interest in watches, yet very happy with just the one that he has--wish I could do that.

    I used to have just one watch but it got retired when the collecting bug really bit me.

    Re: One watch

    I was a one-watch owner from teenage until sometime in the mid-80's. I bought my first watch from the back of a sports magazine in the late 70's and still have it (and it still runs). A 36mm manual wind Wolbrook diver.
