Currently I have an SMP Quartz, IWC Pilot Chronograph, Tag Heuer F1 and PO 8900
The SMP was my first Omega and 'expansive' watch. As a child and young man, I had Lorus and Seiko watches. Oddly enough, a fake SMP kicked it off. I watched a few 007 films in China and picked up a throw away fake SMP. It never felt right wearing a fake, and within months I bought the real thing.
Several watches later, I picked up an IWC. I recall seeing an IWC in the film Vanilla Sky. I was a WIS by now, buying my first brand new luxury watch, a 3717.
It was the start of my WIS downtime mode. Money had to be put towards family matters. I sold a 2500c PO and wanted to fill the void with something else. I purchased a new F1 Grand Date Quartz. I loved the white dial with black look. It was a cheap way to get a beautiful watch with colour the really enjoy.
Fast forward to October 2019 after years away from Watchuseek. My darling agreed to a new watch, with a decent budget to match, to celebrate my 40th in January. I looked at Rolex/IWC and of course Omega. I couldn't believe increase in prices since I'd been out of the game. I couldn't help feeling drawn back to the PO. I wanted something different to the black PO I had. When I saw the 2018 Olympic LE, I was hooked. My wife told me to buy it before the Oct price rise.
So there you have it. My current collection and why I chose each watch.
Wonder if my daughter will grow up liking watches? I think it's too big, 39.5mm might suit her better.
