  1. Looks like the Galactic Collection has joined the Colt and bitten the dust

    Breitling
    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...
  2. My collection

    Public Forum
    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...

This...
  11. Are you a Careless Collector or a Cautious Curator?

    Affordable watches
    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...
  12. Show your “not-predictable” collection

    Public Forum
    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...

    Affordable watches
    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...
