    There like potato chips I can't stop!

    I have been into Smart Watches for a while and decided I would sell a few and replace them with something more traditional. I was on eBay and came by Vostock. They were so cheap I could not refuse.

    Here is the first one that I bought;

    I then look in to them some more and decided I needed an Amphibia;

    Then I was doing some looking around on this forum and found Seiko. I should say found it again because when I was a young, maybe 9, I had a Seiko and loved it. I still have it tell this day. I think it’s a cool Swatch meets Movado look;

    So I added a Seiko 5;

    It’s only been a little less than two months and since I am on a roll I added this;

    Then last night I ordered this. I was going to stay with all mechanical movements in my collection but I think you can always use a quartz or two.

    I like the watches, but more importantly....you're thread title made me bust out laughing. Very funny analogy.

    Again, nice watches...enjoy!

    BBB collection. You should think to sell some pieces and to go to next quality level (300€ - 500€): Hamilton, Certina..

    Interesting collection so far - different than the usual suspects.
    The top 2 are cool - the Komandirskie (officers') have some very nice lug and case detail, and Amfibia is a nice take on a diver that you don't see much. All work really well on Nato's.
    What may be missing is perhaps a dressier watch.

    Good to see someone go from smartwatches to traditional watches rather than the other way round! I like that unique Seiko.
