Thread: Your prefect 4 watch collection

  1. #1

    Your prefect 4 watch collection

    The always fun game of spending money you don't have.

    If you had unlimited money, what would your perfect 4 watch collection look like. Let's assume you don't need a beater.



    My choices

    Vintage Blancpain


    Vintage rivet plexi dial 3646



    Vintage Vostok Amphibian 300m wire lug



    Finally for a dress watch (I cheated cause I couldn't decide between two) so one of these two Piagets.

    This is always fun, and my answer seems to be a little different every time. Ask me again tomorrow and I'm sure it'll be different again. Anyway, if money was no object (this collection would be anything but cheap), I think these 4 would keep me happy for a while.

    Patek Philippe Nautilus


    Lange 1 Moonphase in Rose Gold


    Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph


    And, partially because there's nothing particularly water-resistant in this collection so far, and partially because there's no black dial so far, and partially because there's nothing so far I'd be okay with banging around on a daily basis, and partially because I already own one and love it (mine's not yet modified), let's go with an Omega Seamaster 2254.50 modified with a 2230.50 dial and 2201.50 seconds hand, a.k.a. "2254.50+".

    Not including sentimental watches I own now... it'd be something like this:

    1. Rolex COMEX Seadweller (for the sheer history of the watch and ocean exploration)


    2. Rolex SeaDweller 4000 (for in the water, right now)


    3. Omega Speedmaster 321 Cal. - personal connection to the Apollo program.


    4. Rolex Explorer II - I guess my tastes and interests in watches have substantially narrowed! But this is truely and honestly the other watch I'd want in my collection.

    I am just going with new watches currently available, and I reserve the right to change my mind!

    So, Annual calendar, Dress, World Timer and every day wear.....

    My perfect four watch collection does not exist, but I know I will always own an Ironman. I'm fickle that way and refuse to play this game of limiting my options. You people are fools!
