    Correct. People need to learn how to read. I didnít say my collection was high end. I said I was looking for a high end piece.

    I really like the Patek 5396. Itís about 40k but itís one of my top choices. Thanks for the suggestions.

    I recently traded this in. A beautiful watch but I just didn't wear it much so it was a waste for me. I would definitely recommend one and can point you in the direction of a good one for a decent amount less than $40k if you decide to look closer.

    OP sorry. i wanna make suggestion. why not getting a BLANCPAIN FIFTY FATHOMS MILSPEC ?? you are sport watch lover.

    if not, get the vacheron constantin harmony dual time. or what about ALS DATOGRAPH?? iconic and dressy and sporty at the same time.

    My current collection consists of:
    1) Speedmaster (chronograph)
    2) Rolex Explorer 1 (understated, simple watch)
    3) Rolex Submariner date black (Diver)
    4) Rolex GMT Batman (GMT)

    Attached is a pic showing what the current collection looks like. What would you add to make this collection complete? Thank you.

    first, you need a watch with a white dial to complement your all black dials.
    second, you need a watch on a leather strap (rubber is an option but it is sporty and you are not lacking at all in the sporty Dept).
    Third, get a nice thin dress watch
    Fourth, it looks to me like you are a person who likes watches that have s purpose (Chrono, Diver, GMT) so you might think of an annual/perpetual calendar.

    if i were you, i would sell the explorer and the sub and get me a PP-5146 or a PP-5396.
    that would leave you with three very useful watches: a chrono, a GMT and an annual calendar

    I actually like the royal oak more than the nautilus. I donít have a dress watch and I do want to add some complication to my collection.

    The Sub is a great choice, its goes with everything and comes in a perfect size.

    If you hadn't made the patek only rule I'd say get the jlc chocolate reverso in gold. You like black dials, it's a variation while still staying where your comfy.

    I would suggest you try the patek gondolo on in white gold with blue face. The blue is a darker blue and shouldn't be extremely out of your comfort zone. I would start with a time only high end piece and go from there

    While you could get something more this is going to be your first time wearing a gold watch. It might not be for you. It's not a tank like your rolexs, nor as cheap to fix.

    A time only piece is far better to have for special occasions/days than a complicated piece. It's easier to pull from storage, wind, and go on. If you find yourself wearing it every day, and being ok with its huge reduction in reliability, go for something more.
