    This is sure to ruffle some feathers but hopefully also get a few laughs and maybe even make us wonder what we are doing. Does anyone else see the total irony that a watch that is nearly indestructible and could possibly be “the last we’ll need,” also lends itself to collecting, such that the...

    How do we define a collector? More specifically, a watch collector. Many among us see themselves as watch collectors. But what does it really mean to be a watch collector? Do you have to have a certain number of watches to be able to call yourself a collector? If yes, how many watches are...

    Hey guys, I have these 6 watches. Basically my question is: Should I sell them to get one nice one? Pros: Funds, reduction of amount. Cons: Loosing variety of watches that you liked enough to buy and wear (sometimes). The watch im eyeing is a Rolex Sub 16610. what do you guys think?

    New to watches and collecting in general but 42-45mm diver types. I have taken an interest in. So far I have a 2003 automatic action-Tissot Seastar-1000 25 jewels. But what are you’re thoughts of this? Or even eBay in general & buying watches. I guess I want to know the best way to start a...

    We’ve all eagerly anticipated a recent watch purchase to arrive at our mailbox or looked forward to taking home the one we just bought. It’s a fun time—the proverbial kid on Christmas Day situation. We sport it on wrist and take way too many pictures of the watch like a crazed fan of some movie...

    Do you follow a theme, or are you more eclectic when looking at watches to add to your collection? I've heard the recommendation to add watches based on some criteria, and I'm interested to hear what theme you use or one that you think would be interesting. i.e. Dive watches, retro watches...

    I love seeing people's SOTC's. Here's mine. I've been "seriously" collecting for 2 and a half years now. I am completely content with the current SOTC. I've got no current plans to buy or sell anything. It's no accident that I have 6 tools and 6 dress watches. My collecting philosophy is all...

    Many of us here can be considered collectors and have multiple Swiss, German or Japanese made watches. Curious if any folks downsized their *nice* collection of 8 or 10 or more watches to one or two? What made you do it? Which watches did you settle on?

    I'm pretty new to the world of watch collecting. Whether your new to the game like me, or a seasoned veteran I want to know how you end up with your watches! Do you browse online, at brick and mortar stores until one catches your eye or do you have a wishlist all ready to go? What's your...

    Anyone can help me with the History of this watch Company? I tried researching it but could not find anything. I just recently got into collecting vintage watches, and hoping this could be part of my first few in my collection!
  13. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hello all, I'm a fairly new member. I have several vintage watches I've collected over the past couple years. I'm trying to decide what to have serviced and keep and what to sell. I'm not really sure in terms of "IS IT WORTH IT" to pay for a full service. All of these watches have some unique...

    A place for us to post our comical interactions with the ladies or significant others in our life about our watches. Last night my girlfriend was complimenting my SKX007 that I had just put on a Super Oyster II from StrapCode (awesome bracelet!). She asked if she could turn the dive bezel to...

    I'm new to collecting and I've started to expand my collection. For the last few years, I've had a Seiko-5 auto, and I really love that watch. It keeps phenomenal time, and I like the overall design. The love for that mechanical set off the watch collecting bug and now my collection is...
  16. Russian watches
    Hi all, I haven't been around for a while. Got a job and all that. So I haven't bought anything or looked often since Jan 2012. Anyway, I'm wondering if things have changed in the russian watch market? Is it harder to find good pieces? I saw lots of watches, like Komandirskies, going for under...

    To those of you who have a watch collection. Find your first watch, the one that started the collection and passion(don't tell me you threw it away!) and compare it to your latest watch. Or, compare your old favorite to a new latest and greatest watch. Do it just to see how your watch...

    I have recently acquired the watch bug, at this time it seems to be of the Seiko/Orient strain. It happened innocently enough, I was just looking to replace my everyday wearer, a Fossil FS2903. I bought the Fossil about five or six years ago I can’t remember exactly when, but I wore it every day...

    Hey all, I am awaiting shipment on my new 382, and I have a question for serious collectors: is patina on a bronze watch going to be a big plus, or is keeping it "safe queen" mint better if I wanted to try and maintain maximum value of the watch? Rollie fans celebrate patina to an extent, but...
