Nice watches! Especially the Hamilton. My only issue would be, they are all black.Hi, just wanted to share my current 3 watch (auto) collection (my others watches are all quartz)
I have always belonged in this category and loved the affordable's value for money.
But then, Ive been thinkin to move up to higher tier brands (like tudor especially bb58) but these 3 have filled my everyday needs (the hammy for office/everyday, the skx for sports and other outdoor activities and the sarb for more formal occasions) though all of them for me are GADA watches and can fulfill all functions. Also what i love about them is that they are all very accurate. The hammy +0.5 sec/day, the skx ~+2.5 sec/day and the sarb being the least accurate but don't mind since mostly used for special occasions ~ -8sec/day.
Unfortunately, getting the bb58 means flipping all these 3 to help finance it. But im worried that when i buy for example a bb58 i might not have that same satisfying feeling and if it would fulfill the things these 3 have done which is why ive always held off getting one. Have you had that feeling? Any suggestions?
If youve been there, any regrets?
Thanks for the time and suggestions in advance

Simple but probably the most sensible advice. Because they are affordable watches, they won't stay in a safe for investment. Their purpose is to be worn and you need to like wearing them. So my take at the moment (I don't have any expensive watch) is: if it's not worn and doesn't have any particular sentimental value then I sell.I’ve been in similar positions and sold my beloved watches which I regret now. So , just my 2 cents, don’t sell watches with high wrist times pal ..

Best adviceTo me that’s almost the perfect 3 watch collection! Field, dive and dress. Just my two cents but I think you should keep them and just save a little longer for the big purchase. How much would you really get for those 3 used anyway? In my mind it’d be worth more to keep them.
It just so happens that these models have date features and not that i have specifically chosen them for the date. But i do admit that they do become useful specially when my phone it out of reach. In the office, we measure our work progress thru calendar planning and week numbers hence the casio G7710 with week numbers remain in the stable.Any reason why all so far are black with the date feature? I love that Hamilton model, especially with the red tip on the seconds hand. A while back I was looking for a vintage Mil-spec Hamilton processor to yours but gave up without buying.
True, im not fixated on the bb58, it's just that it's the one watch that has that brand pedigree and reputation thats within reach budget wise. (other models im considering are: omega aqua terra, OP 36, tudor 76200 all 39mm below) But sadly the bb58 is hard to find in SRP. Though i dont mind buying used if the condition is right. And the tudor 76200 is not worth the price e many are asking for right nowI think you’ll be happy you decided to hold on to these three. Keep saving for the BB58, and who knows maybe your eye will one on something else while your saving.
My son has been eyeing the SKX for some time now. I will eventually pass it onto him 😉i SAY keep them and save up!
However, If you are one watch/one genre type of person, then perhaps get rid of the SKX, but ONLY after you have had both and see that SKX needs a better home...
I already tried that... Just went back to the classic look. In fact my skx is really skx009... Some picsNice touch with the bracelet on the SKX007! One thing that can tide you over in the interim without too much investment is a bezel swap; I was on the verge of almost never wearing my SKX007, but with a sloping Submariner-style bezel, it now gets more wrist time than the SKX171 that I originally bought to replace it.
