I have two watches that I am waiting for my Christmas time off to do some work on.
One is vintage Seiko 5 that I am doing a movement transplant, and putting on a new dial and got a signed crown to replace the old crown.
The other is an old Hamilton that is getting disassembly and cleaning.
I also want to build a new display case.
Looking forward to the tinkering.
As to new (to me), I am looking to get a nice blue hand stainless steel dress watch - not decided on the watch yet, and I want to get a Beijing Watch Factory watch. Also saving up for an Omega Speedmaster - undecided on model.
I'm sizing down my collection.. and I don't mean downsizing. I wasn't bothered by the size of my watches - in fact I like big watches - but I'm already substituting bigger watches with slightly smaller ones. Sold a Casio ProTrek PRW-6600, likely to pick up a PRW-50. I'm on the fence about my MR-G, but it just feels huge after wearing some more moderate pieces (like the 41mm Hydroconquest or any G-Shock square). We'll see. I generally intend to spend less time and money on watches.
But, I'm waiting to see real life photos and videos of the watch, as it's hard to tell from the renders how the dial will interact with the light.
Aside from that, I will keep a look out for targets of opportunity like the Patek Philippe 5711 Nautilus in blue, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15202ST, Rolex Daytona ceramic in white, and Rolex Pepsi GMT ceramic, but I'm not holding my breath for these.
I should probably trim my collection of some of the affordables as I'm running out of space in my watch boxes. In particular, I have a number of watches that are somewhat duplicative.
