Very nice collection...! You have a little bit of everything, here are some of my favorites that I've seen from other posters. No, I don't own these two, and for all practical reasons I will probably never own these, though they are pretty nice in my opinion...and I enjoy being on a search for another internal bezel watch...

I like it, it's the vintage equivalent of a casio calculator watch, only worn by those who can do math in their heads...

Wow, 12 superC's. I think I just saw God...! Almost a shame to have twelve beauties sitting in box. Though I would do the same if I had them.

Are these watches less common in the U.S., as it looks like quite a few folks from Australia, and the UK own these....?

I've got more .. but only 12 fit in the box.
They're not common anywhere but ebay makes it possible for collectors everywhere to acquire rare pieces.

My meagre offerings:

Poljot official-issue chronograph, late 1970s


'QREINI' Hong Kong homage of an Orient SK with Slava movement, mid 1980s



I'm surprised that nobody has posted a Seiko Bellmatic yet.

Top row 4th from left is the famous Universal Geneve Polerouter Sub (42mm)
Back in 1961 it would have been huge.
There's plenty of info on them to be found with Google.
One of the plainest looking super compressors and its simplicity is the essence of elegance.

Second from the left bottom is an Alpina 36mm .. not sure of the movement
