    Bathys 100f Auto: I love this watch.... Great funky vibe, great bracelet, and a brand where you can literally call the owner on his cell phone and talk about the crown and what he'll be changing for the next batch. It don't get better than that.




    Casio GWM5600: The watch I wear when I don't want to hurt one of my others.




    Citizen BM6400: Gift from the girlfriend and my permanent adventure watch.




    Deep Blue APQD: Back from when Deep Blue made watches that WIS wanted at prices which made sense. I've used it as a hammer.





    Glycine Airman Base 22: My graduation gift to myself. One watch that I'll never let out of my collection.




    Helson Shark Diver #13: Awesome piece from what was an awesome company when I bought it.... Not so sure about now, but I still love this thing. If anything is ever going to leave the box though, its this one first.




    Seiko SARB033: Bought it at the Paris Seiko Boutique. Absolutely love every ounce of it, but I just don't wear the darn thing that often.




    Seiko SARB015: THE watch for me.




    Seiko SBBN015 Tuna: Built like a tank. Looks cool. Got real history. Looks cool. Swap on an SBBN023 shroud and z22 and it's ready to dive to the depths of my liquor cabinet.




    Seiko 31MAS: An SKX031 plus a domed acryllic, plus a generic 6r15 yields the best mod I've ever done.




    Seiko SBFG001: Just as nerdy as I am.

    PICS COMING SOON!!


    WUST5 #13: Just look at it.... Need I say more?

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Mine is a very modest collection.

    The first watch I bought after really learning about watches was actually a new gym watch.

    G-shock 6900, I have beaten the hell out of this (three Tough Mudders and countless camping trips) and it keeps coming back for more.

    Next was an Obris Morgan Branco.

    Then I was gifted a Luch one-hander

    Next was my go-to watch, Helson SD #37

    Then a watch I really had to search for, Kemmner Tonneau #113
