2 years in. At one point I had 12. Now I am down to these 5. The Nomos and Damasko see most of the wrist time. I will never sell the Sarb013. Might sell the Sarb033 and Sarb035. Time will tell. Hoping to add a Speedmaster some day...

I'm the same, had 12 then got it down to 5, now back up to 12 or maybe more now. LOL a vicious circle, got 3 speedies haha.

I regulately wear almost all of them, always rotating... often selling and buying more 😉
Here's my collection. All of them are worn regularly, are pretty beat up, and have plenty of character. I manage a private motorcycle collection for a living which means I'm a machinist and a mechanic so they aren't perfect. They are a GMT II, another GMT II, a premoon Speedmaster, a Seamaster 60, a Bulova Spaceview, and a small watch that my best friend, a 4 generation clockmaker, assembled for me.

i couldn't help notice you're somewhat down about your watches not being perfect. there are so many people out there with perfect watches. it is not fun to burn yourself and pull your arm out and see a scratched gmt master ll "coke" while working. now at least i know it is not just me. i 'll take having a beat watch collection, and being able to grab a handful of shovlehead with a seadweller on the outside of a jacket than not knowing lives better moments. thank you, for sharing, bill

Thanks for sharing, terrific collection! I really admire your attitude, to me watches should be worn and enjoyed ,not sit in the safe place. As far as I'm concerned, you should be proud to show that your watch is used regularly. Enjoy in good health!

No detail here, sorry. Other than the Seiko "helmet" chrono - I bought it in almost mint condition before they went through the roof. One day, as I was running across a parking lot in the rain, a spring bar broke and the watch hit the ground. It damaged one of the lugs, basically broke off, so it's now unwearable. I'm hoping to eventually replace the case.
Also have a really nice Titoni Airmaster somewhere and a Glycine Combat 6 in a box that I am planning to sell.

Glycine pre-invicta buyout were a great bang for the buck watch. Post Invicta, not so great and agree that almost any Seiko is higher quality.
Key on Glycine is to look for the crown logo instead of the wings logo. Some of the pre-buyout watches are still floating around out there.

Glycine Combat 6 is it pre Invicta 2 years ago? What are you asking for it? billhundt@yahoo.com
So my collection is finally looking quite good if I can say so. Bottom row Rado, FC and Fossil are my wife's watches, rest are mine. Funny thing is that every watch I own has a little backstory to it but I'm very sentimental about 2: to be precise 2nd row most left Kenneth Cole which is the very first watch I bought for myself (and even had great time haggling the price, 200$ was a lot for my 17yo old self) and top right corner which is vintage Glashutte GUB my now deceased grandfather owned - it was in very bad condition -cracked, not working and no bracelet so I've decided to restore it for him as a gift, unfortunately he didn't get to see it renovated and in full glory so now it will sit in my collection until I die.

very VERY cool. Thank you for sharing. Great story behind it.

I built a small rig for a lavaliere mic element and use an app on my old iPhone to regulate my automatics. The green Seiko 5 has kept within a couple seconds/day when worn, and I can position it at night to get back closer to time by morning. The gold 5 is from 1988 as far as I can tell and has kept +/- 2 sec/day without me even touching it. The stainleas with black dial 5 appears to be from 1978 and is the first one I have dabbled with beat error correcting.

Luminox 0301- Quartz everyday beater Christopher ward c60 trident vintage ,38mm,bracelet- Love it , gets the most wear, about -3sec/24hr .Great quality watch. Certina ds podium auto , white dial, bracelet - Another lovely watch, sporty dress look, the dial and quality is amazing, it runs at about +12 though, not the best but within eta parameters. Seiko Turtle SRP775K1 - Trusty diver for getaways and for out and about use. Yema- yeau 011-ba- Basic and cheap, but has a use as a cheap dress watch . The movement is surprising really good.

Very good quality and keeps great time , the bracelet /bezel is amazing . The logo is not as bad in person, but I agree it's still not the best. The lume while good , isn't seiko level. I'd rather they made it at 40/41mm also. But i'm still impressed every time I wear it.
Good starting collection, keep it up.

From left to right: - Hamilton (quartz), just a basic beater that I'm not worried about damaging. - Hamilton 9379 automatic chronograph, reverse-panda. - Junghans Max Bill automatic - Steinhart Nav-B Uhr automatic, B type. - Skagen Jorn quartz. I bought this on clearance as my "summer" watch to replace my Timex Weekender, which I think was defective because the ticking was so loud I could hear it across the room.
A very "budget" (value-based?) collection. Someday I'll pick up a nice diver but happy with what I have right now. The only bummer is that I don't have many occasions where I can wear the Junghans.

Thanks. I had that strap lying around but I'm pretty sure I originally bought it from Hirsch: https://www.hirschstraps.com/products/hirsch-rush-nylon-nato-watch-strap-in-black-grey-orange?variant=25528995080
Hope that helps!

Not sure I would call this a "budget" collection, but it's all relative. Love the Hamilton.

State of my collection: disarray. I have multiple watch boxes to keep them in but usually take them off at my bedside, at the bathroom counter, at my desk in my office, or at my dresser. So I have piles like this one at each location. I have to get my shit together and organize them all on their pillows and box them properly. But with probably 40 or so watches that's a project. LOL

This is the state of my meager collection consisting of my seiko snk371 on a nato strap as my everday wear, with a tour de france Tissot, dress quartz Bulova, quirky eco-drive Citizen, and a beater G-Shock

You truthfully have a very solid foundation for the collection... The SNK looks great
Jojo1711
Tissot are nice. Use d to sell them at gun and knife shows 20 years ago.

Nothing super special but I’m not filthy rich either. I do enjoy a good watch and looking forward to getting a couple more ...Hamilton, Oris, Fortis, and maybe a Omega one day.
