    God damn I knew viewing this thread would be bad news for me.

    So many lovely pieces i don't really know where to start.

    Great varied collection.
    Every time I see an Aquanaut I feel the urge to try one.

    Really commend trying one Andy. I sincerely prefer it to the 5711. Just such a svelte, modern, yet classic and surprisingly robust piece!

    Lovely collection. It's very apparent a lot of thought has gone into it. I love nautalis but for that kind of money it would mean selling a lot of your other watches so I think you've made the right decision.

    Always had a thing for Navitimers and I've owned a few, so that 806 is the pick of the bunch for me.

    That's very kind of you to ask Tony.

    Still very much enjoying retirement and having just hit 65 have a state pension to help boost the funds along.

    ^^^ Thanks all, and also to those who contributed to the thread with their own collection photos... all lovely, for sure.

    Spuds, you you like Rolex, by any chance?

    Amazing collection and a value that could pay off my mortgage with money to spare 🤑

    It is always somewhat sobering to contemplate the current state of play, but in the spirit of the OP, here is a mathematically convenient subset of my current gaggle.



    This misses three or four others in current circulation as well as 40 or so waiting in the wings. Obviously Seiko-centric but you will spot the odd Swiss interloper!

    Lovely collection.

    Top row, second in from the right - what model is that?

    Same as the one to its left, no? 62MAS...either original or reissue, and I'd wager each are one of those!

    They are both original 62MAS. I am not a fan of the reissue.

    Lovely. There's a sheen and depth to that dial that is just gorgeous.

    It's what I grew up aspiring to Ton', and as much as it goes against the ethos of many on here I know I won't lose a fortune on any of'em, some have actually made me a few quid, and if I ever need cash in a hurry I can sell any of mine within an hours or so, so....

    It's not a competition! We all have different tastes. That's a hell of a collection.

    Here's an iPad screen with my last purchase (June 2015, SC) bottom right. Some time ago I thought that 5 was the magic number. I also recall Tony talking of reducing right down a year or 3 ago. Sigh . . .

    Lovely. Nice to see a mini collection of Fortis too. What model is the square case at the very top left?

    Thank you, it's a Fortis Square UTC Swiss Airlines LE (they used to sell them on board of the Swiss planes). I managed to source a rare bracelet recently and on the wrist it's definitely an eye catcher.
    It's 38,5 mm in size but it wears like a 44mm due to the square shape. Don't want to highjack Tony's thread, and his wonderful collection, but here are two clearer pics

    I love that - it's a beast on the bracelet, isn't it, whilst still managing to look smart? (Other collections and watch shots are welcome so post away.)

    Stunning collection as always Tony. Whatís on the horizon, anything special?

    Travelling to Africa frequently mine have become rather modest in comparison, with many cheaper but pleasing to my eye designs.

    Loving the likes of Timefactors and others for quality builds at decent prices, which I prefer these days. Offer something unique, limited numbers and draw less attention when travelling, but still catch the eye of similar minded enthusiasts. Long gone are the days of watches past, and there were some crackers, but that is the compromise I have chosen to make. It allows me to wear all my watches all of the time, regardless of where Iím travelling and without fear of losing them or my life!

    How times have changed!!

    Awesome collection you have there OP, defiantly no 'album fillers' amongst that lot.

    Here is my little collection in 'one shot' I have got to the point now where I have to buy another box or operate a 1 in 1 out policy....

    Lovely collection there. Is it sad that my first thought was, 'Ooh, we've got the same work top'.
