    Hello all, so I feel kinda burdened by how many I have in my collection and have been selling a few here and there. But today I am putting eight of my lower cost watches in a bundle just to lessen my collection quickly. Most of these are doubles that I am not wearing. Really this could be a...

    So, how long have you kept a mechanical watch ticking in case it was your daily wearer? I guess most collectors have to deal with their watches stopping every now and then, I'm personally more inclined to a one-watch collection, and I got curious. Years maybe? I guess servicing and time setting...

    Since getting involved in Breitling about a year ago I've taken to watching the catalog pretty closely. Under the Kern leadership the Colt has gone and just looking at the site now it appears the Galactic collection died in the past few days. Did this happen some time ago and I just missed it...

    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...

    SOTC Jan 2020

    I called these 'keepers' in January, but one is sold already and the Zodiac will likely be up for sale soon. I think I want to move to a situation where I choose what to wear from a much smaller collection of 2-3 watches, but I don't want to get rid of anything prematurely (I've done that once...

    I'm thinning out my watch collection to make a much larger purchase. Going out the door now are some of my Deep Blues that I just don't wear. All are in very good to excellent condition, and have been worn infrequently. Any blemishes are my fault in photography. Up for sale is: 1) Black PVD...

    I know there are lots of these out there, but this is such a fun thing to do. I'm just starting to get a collection going, and wonder what all of you think would be the ideal 3-watch collection, with a maximum of $5k to spend (Prices must be for new condition watches, AD or grey market). This...

    For the purpose of this post, let's say there are two main camps for watch collectors; impulsive like-it-buy-it folks, and those who look at a new watch and consider a dozen other options before adding it to their collection. I'm not implying one is better than the other, and many of us likely...

    A lot of the collections we drool over the most are also fairly predictable exercises in checking the main iconic boxes: Speedy, Sub, etc. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, I’m currently interested in seeing some collections that go off the beaten path, so to speak: unique...

    Hey there! I am new to this forum, and recently (as of a few months ago), have gotten into watches. It started with just changing the battery of one of my first watches (The Wenger 79076), and then it kind of snowballed from there. I have, for the most part, more affordable watches (anywhere...

    Good evening gents. I've spent quite some time thinking on what I actually should say. First of all, my name is Andrew. I am 17 years old and I started collecting watches last year at the end of July. After dealing with a lot of beginner mistakes, I've collected these 11 watches. I am looking...
