What do you guys think of my collection?

The Longines belonged to my grandfather
The Invicta was also inherited
The Citizen was my college watch
The weird bracelet was a gift from my brother
The guitar was a gift to celebrate my release of my first album
The Omega was a 40th birthday present
The Wenger was my first dual time for my girlfriend and I
The Sturhling was just a great deal
The labradorite was a gift from a client who makes them


THANKS!

Apparently all meaningful to you other than they're watches and you're WIS. Cool!!

Great share. If I may be so bold as to recommend a strap change for the tank shaped Citizen; a black lizard to make it a bit more of a dress piece should work wonders. Just my thoughts and again, thanks for sharing.

That's a great idea, thanks!

You have a great collection. I particularly like your grandfather's Longines. That is one is real treasure.

Cool collection! Thanks for sharing. The guitar watch is very cool. Please show a close-up of the face when you get a moment.

Is this a poem? So poetic :)

wuyeah - ha! I am a poet/songwriter though so maybe it's rubbing off on my forum posts ;)

With 14 songs on the album, the original recordings were pretty noisy, but I've built a home recording studio
and am redoing all the songs in higher quality, you can hear the first 9 on my website, still finishing up...
Also have 20+ bonus songs to redo on the website, and then I start the second album.

My collection isn't really a collection, I just like nice things, I consider my pens more of a collection, since I've loved pens since I was little, as a writer, poet, songwriter... I don't collect watches though, I'm never looking for a new watch the way I am for a new pen :) You know how it is.

I like the fact that most of your watches come from somewhere. They weren't just random purchases. The personal value - which could be the best kind of value - goes through the roof when a collection is formed this way.

Thanks, I've never understood the mentality of those who just wear something, or name a child something without a deeply thought out reason... I spent more time naming my cats than some spend to name their blood children lol
