My collection's kind of all over the place so I'm not sure I have a standout. I've only two divers, so they probably stand out. I guess I'll go with a recent watch that probably stands out a bit.

The 6870 is quite nice. It's not as decorated as the 6870 which is what I would've really liked, but the 6898 is not bad either. 1.98mm thick is pretty good. And it's pretty well finished, if a bit plain.



And because the 6898 is quite nice, they did put it inside a decent container too.

I picked this up because it stands out in any crowd.

The standout in my fairly conservative box is this Croton Hourmatic. I don’t worry that much about most of my watches. This one is old enough (40s? 50s?) and unusual enough (triple date bumper automatic) that I’m more cautious with it. So, odd in a different way.

Functionally, my latest acquisition stands out from the rest of my collection... Since it is a 24-hour watch. My first.

I've got huge divers, one slightly less huge diver, a huge chronograph and this little guy.

Maker unknown. It has a Felsa 107.
All the others does not have a Felsa 107 and are less than 20 years old. The tank is almost 100 years old. The others are automatic, Tanky McTankface is hand wound.
The others have hands and a dial. Tanky does not.

It's tiny, but a really sweet little piece. I'm chuffed to bits over it.

Here's a group photo that illustrates how much of an outsider my little tank is.😁

OP, @Calumets , you asked how do you explain that watch?

It looks great and the brand leaned into its style well. That's how you explain it. I would wear it proudly too.
