As I start putting together goals for the upcoming year with savings and what not, I'm thinking about what I'd like to add to my collection in 2018. I've been more and more trying to abide by (not always successfully) only buying watches that I've been thinking about for more than 6 months. These are the ones (like a couple of my Seikos) that seem to end up getting the most wrist time. Ones I buy on impulse I often find myself rarely wearing, or flipping a few months down the road.
Here are a few that I've had my eye on.
Oris Chronoris Date - I've been reading everything I can about this one since the news came out of Basel and Stainless (I think) shared an image of it here on a thread a few months back that brought me back to it. Prices have continued to fall over the course of the year and this is one I'll likely go grey market on in 2018 on the bracelet.
Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical - I think my little Seiko is in trouble when these come over state side (only available in Japan at the moment).
Omega Speedmaster - TBD - This has always been a grail watch for me, to the point where I'm not sure which reference to get. I've thought about it so much I'm concerned that once I take the plunge I'll find myself disappointed. I'm also finding myself tempted by the Railmaster reissues...
Something w/ blue face on a steel bracelet - Since selling a watch that filled this niche (an old quartz beater I had for years and years) I find myself consistently missing something along these lines. I saw a really nice Longines GMT the other week, but it wore a little large (was very thick with the GMT complication) and this watch doesn't need to be anything fancy. I'm waiting until I see the right one and I'll know it.
Anyone out there have specific pieces they are going for in the new year? Releases you may be anticipating?
