    Which one?

    I've found myself going whole days without putting on a watch recently. When I do take one up I almost always pick the Citizen BM6400 because it's the only one that hasn't stopped

    This G Shock Rangeman, it's my work watch, and it's such a fuss free liberating thing.



    This is still my favourite, although temporarily displaced by the Speedy Moon I'm trying to bond with

    Well, at the moment it seems to be this one. Keeping time at about half a second a day.
    Doesn't look so 'obvious' in real life.

    I always seem to gravitate back to a diver - my Sumo is the current favourite

    PRS-21 Voyager. I very rarely wear anything else nowadays so I am considering selling my other GMT watches.

    My daily was almost excusivley an IWC 3717 until I finally bit the bullet and bought an LV recently after years of lust. Wondering if I can sell off most of my collection now as I dont see much future need for it.

    Dssd. Days without a watch? You should be put into the stocks for that!

    Was Rolex Submariner 16613 Bimetal with the black face, but more recently(continuously for the past 3 weeks) Omega 2255.80 Electric Blue face.
    Both watches running within a second a day, not really keen on non chronometer mechanicals.

    I seem to be leaning that way. But there are some in the collection which should be in there regardless of whether they are worn or not, which makes it very difficult. For instance I also have a 2254.50, which should go, but really, should it?

    I read this thread with interest..... because despite owning a few 'High-end' watches....Its crazy but unless its a special occasion or going out for a meal they tend to stay in their boxes.

    On a daily basis I regularly wear my G-Shocks and Seiko Divers

    I sometimes wonder whether I should get rid of all the lower end watches and wear the others for the purpose in which they were intended...... enjoy them whilst I can!

    You might not have seen the original post's image thanks to Photobucket, but I think he posted a picture of lots of hand written logs

    I'm not really worried about the wear and tear - If a watch needs servicing, it'll be done - It's really just a way to assess what I really wear, rather than what I _think_ are my favourite watches.

    It doesn't mean the Cosmonaute, for example, is going to be sold if I wear it less than my Seiko Alpinist, and the one's I suspected would feature heavily do, but there are some unexpected results.

    No more watches, no more watches..... if I say it enough times It might sink in

    That Sinn is special, I remeber seeing that model or one very like it in the late 90's. Was it a year 2000 commerative release of some sort? Fantastic looking thing.

    It can be hard to let go of watches you have owned for years but this hobby is an indulgence and when you have watches that do nothing for you, but you continue to hoard, its time to move them on. I will keep a few that I have an attachment to and which give a spread of different styles; your 2254.50 would be one I would have soft spot for :)

    I wore my G-Shock to go swimming in the lake yesterday, does that get me a reprieve?

    I wear mine on a weekly rotation, pondering which to wear on a Sunday morning is part of the fun. This week's watch is a 50 eBay manual wind on a stretch metal strap. I'll shared a photo with you all on Friday.
