    JMHO, a person needs to take into consideration the context of his acquisition. From what I have read, Mike Wood wasn't out to collect as many Milsubs and Comex divers as he could possibly get...........He was in the business and through his daily work he came across these watches when there was little to no demand for them. He has true love for the brand and a passion for these particular watches based on history. It is only through sheer luck that these have skyrocketed in value such that it seems gluttonous. (I guess Gluttony and derivatives are the word for the day for me.)

    Like I said.....JMHO of course.

    BTW, I guess it does depend on what someone's definition of "ultimate collection" is for a watch collection. I know Ken wears all his watches (or nearly all) in a rotation. He keeps them in a bank vault and trades them out periodically. I guess for me the ultimate watch collection is based on two things......value and diversity. When I say diversity, I mean High-End watches from Rolex, Patek, JLC, and AP primarily. The more the merrier.

    Itís societyís fault. You know how society views people in their 30s who are thin, single and neat!

    I donít know the guy and i certainly respect his idea of a collection but I agree w you especially on diversity and less so on value but I could embrace the latter . A true watch collection should be of pieces that will defy time and will remain relevant for the near and not so near future because of their timeless designs... So what foots the bill.... AP Rolex PP Blancpain come to mind for sure but even Omega w the older speedy and seamaster . Some new brands, who knows, might become future super desirable collectibles but none come to mind ...
    I would argue that pieces from established Swiss brands still in existence today that do not have collectible pieces from their past most likely never will be collectible ... IWC comes to mind (except the cool retro pieces like the 1st ceramic chrono) but aside from that nothing else is really collectible . GS has tons of older pieces out there for cheap so doubt they will become the cream of the crop unless the world wakes up and starts eating them up .
