    Swap out your whole collection! (Theoretically)

    Thought this might be a fun exercise for some of us, let's see if I can explain it. The story starts here: I've tried to build my collection based on variety, a watch for every occasion. There are certain watches that I really like, but I never purchase because I already have something too similar. I can't justify two watches that serve the same purpose. Disclaimer: When I say "similar," I'm talking style & color mostly, because that's how I choose which watch to put on each morning.

    With that in mind, I've attempted to put together a list of these watches that catch my eye, and mentally substitute them for watches that I own, to build a roughly equivalent collection. Sort of my "alternate universe" collection. These are all the watches I would have bought if I didnt already buy their counterparts.

    Here's the basic idea if anyone wants to play along:
    -Post each of your watches, along with the watch you'd swap with it.
    -Watches should be roughly in the same price bracket. No fair swapping out your collection of Timexes for Pateks.

    What do you think? I'd be happy with either collection, but obviously I'm biased toward the left hand column.
