    Off Topic post Ultimate 3-watch-collection budgeting game.

    Complicating the 3 watch collection game a little here. I've broken down different 3 watch collections by price points. The game is to try to get close to the maximum price allowed without going over. Most watches are based on used market value (what I've seen online, or in the case of some cheaper models- what I paid for). I learned a lot about myself (like how for the dress watch, the 44KS turned into a 44GS, then into a GS reissue and stayed there for a while until i could afford a good vintage PP), what some watches mean to me (dont need chronographs... unless its the ALS datograph), what I like (love seikos) and dont like (no divers except for the oris- not sure why..) etc. I just started my collection 2 years ago, and now with 5 pieces already, I'm aiming at that Explorer I next year. All watches below are between 35mm-40mm, small wrist... Anyway heres my list.
