State of the Collection, 2010

Post by Watch Noob » December 28th 2010, 2:21pm

Saw a thread at Wallyworld and thought it would be interesting to draw a comparison. So how many watches did you purchase in 2010? Myself, I bought (3). A Seiko Sawtooth, A TAG Grande Date, and a Invicta SAS.


Your turn...

While your lists are impressive in Quality guys, you disappoint me in Quantity. If you haven't purchased over 100 watches this year like several other, shall we say IQ challenged, you don't stand a chance for the crown.

Made me check the spreadsheet. Bought 5 last year. Halios, Damasko, Vollmer, Seiko, and Sicura. Nice pictures Randy.

Well, since my IQ is higher than room temperature. I only bought three, all used.

1. Deep Blue Day/Night OPS T100 (Blue)
2. Boschett Cave Dweller (Yellow dial)
3. Deep Blue Day/Night Diver T100 (Orange) (Luv' those tubes!)

Every time I hear of someone buying more than 50-100 TV watches, my mind instantly thinks of the TV show "Hoarders".

What do you do with all of those cheese boxes??

After all, no ham-wristed louts complained when all watches were 34mm - no cries of "looks like a little girl's watch on my wrist!" Like King Canute on the beach, that's where I draw the line - come what may.

I'm glad to hear someone say that. It's the one that gets the most wear. I like that simple charcoal dial. I got my wife a JL Baca I think its called. Also a simple black dial with a nice 7 link bracelet. I'm a JL fanboi :-)
