So right now, I can say I'm pretty happy with my current lineup. I achieved my mini-grail SMP after a while of saving, and I've got some legendary affordables, and there's not really anything I'd change. I know it's important to really appreciate what you do have, as opposed to thinking about what you don't have, but as a human being, I can't help but think about what my perfect collection would be like. I think it'd be something like this:

Rolex 6200 from 1954
Rolex Daytona 6263
Rolex Submariner 5513
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean LM
Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch
Seiko G757-5020
Seiko 0674-5009
G-Shock II DW5500

Those 8 watches add up to my perfect collection. What would be your perfect lineup?

No such thing as a perfect collection.

I've revised my answer. My ideal lineup would be my own personal warehouse, filled with 2 copies of every single wristwatch ever manufactured by anybody: I'd have one of each to bang around and not worry about and one to keep looking pristine. Sure, many would probably never end up being worn (due to average human life expectancy divided by average time I would wear one watch before changing to another without seeming unreasonable, and also due to the fact that, by having every single watch ever made, that would include an assortment of Invictas, Nixons, Fossils, and other brands I don't care about that I would never grant the privilege of being able to spend a single minute on my wrist), but at least I'd always have whatever watch I feel like wearing on hand and ready for whatever occasion I may need it for, which would really be the only truly perfect collection.

I suppose it might look something like this:

Rolex Explorer
Omega Speedmaster Professional
JLC Reverso
AP Royal Oak
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms
tourbillon
some sort of Patek
Sinn U1 (beater)

I feel confident that I'll end up with the Explorer, Speedmaster, U1, and (possibly) the Reverso at some point although it will probably take a few years. I already have a tourbillon and I'll always have one around. The others are likely more dream than reality. Maybe someday if the stars align...

Stephen Stills comes to mind: a Reverso, an AT 2500, a Speedy Pro, & an Omega SMP

What I've learned is my collection only needs everyday sport watches. From there what I've learned is a Rolex Explorer II, some type of diver and a third watch from some other sport category is pretty much it. The Explorer II is the perfect everyday piece, and the other two categories I have three of each so I try to find reasons not to wear the EXP II. I'm just too uncertain as to what the other two should be. I would only go down in number, not up. No hurry to change it anytime soon, plus good to have options. So for now it reads:

Rolex Explorer II White Dial
Rolex Sub C LV Green
Omega ProPlof White dial
Ball Skindiver
Rolex Milgaus GV
Glashutte Original Senator Navigator Pano Date
First Release Ball Fireman B&O The First Mile White/Blue

Add the following 3 pieces to my current collection and it would be perfect for me.

- Grand Seiko Automatic GMT SBGM021
- Tudor Black Bay
- JLC Reverso Tribute to 1931

I should be able to achieve that in about 5 years.

In my wildest dream I would also add this one:

- VC Patrimony Traditionnelle small second in rose gold.

Dress:
- JLC Master Control (Or something similar from them)
- JLC Reverso
- Maurice Lacroix Pontos Day/Date (Bias since I have it)

Just for Fun:
- JLC Duometre, ALS Saxonia, AP RO, Tag Monza, and Eric Claptons Platinum Patek - because why not chuck $4m USD at it... right?

- A couple of quartz watches for running/beach/whatever

- A bank account to sustain the above.

This will inevitably change abruptly. As of today I would not buy another watch and be completely content if my rotation included:
JLC Memovox
AP RO
Pam 351 or 312
Breitling Transocean Chronograph
Omega PO 8500 Ti Blue

Considering where I am in life currently, I am pleased with what I have. Over the next 1-3 years I plan to add a Sturmanskie (I want a Russian piece in the collection), I will likely grab a Chinese on my next trip (Possibly a Seagull), I quite like the Halios Tropik B, and (at next bonus) I am debating between a Bell & Ross or a Clerc.

My ideal collection is well rounded and reflects my interests.....traveling and automobiles. That is why my most recent purchase was an Oris WilliamsF1.
