    According to my database, currently 255, but I'm sure that there are some that I haven't entered on there.

    I have 4, thinking of selling the more expensive ones as I probably only wear them once or twice per year. Seems silly to own them.

    255? Sounds like the limitation of a very old database!

    I've been a member here for over 11 years.

    From 2007-2017 only one mechanical watch, my Sinn U2..... since last year I have added a Sinn U 1000, Sinn 103 and a Stowa Klassic 90th Anniversary Sport.

    I'm now just wearing the Sinn U2 and the Stowa.

    This. The man doesn't have a house, he has a Tardis!!

    I peaked a couple of years ago at around 90 (almost all Seiko) and currently have about 50, but at least half of those are listed on ebay. When something sells, I buy the next one.
    To be honest it seems more of an illness than a hobby...

    I had one watch when I joined here - a Tag Aquaracer that I’d had since 2011. Since joining, I have bought an Omega Speedmaster '57, a Metal G-Shock (don’t know what model but solar/radio thingy), a Seiko dress watch, an Omega SMPc 300M and a Christopher Ward C5 slimline. Still looking for a decent birth year watch but being born in 1957, I’ve ruled out any Speedmasters from that year.......

    Cardbox (https://www.cardbox.com/) can handle far far more than 255 records. I'm afraid that the limitation is entirely with my data entry!

    Not any more!!

    I used to have maybe 100 or thereabouts for many years but none of more than maybe £3-500 worth individually but that was actually too many and I literally wore maybe 2-3 of them?!?!
    I now have 7 that work and another 5 or so that donít and also some spares watches?!?!

    I donít think Iíll ever get back to how many I had as Iíd rather go for quality than quantity?? I would say that for me I have seen a very nice collection from a member on here who lives in Beccles and heís the reason I have metal flight cases for mine now as he had 3 I think from memory and each was full to the brim with stunning vintage Chronos etc
    Canít remember his username but I would say his wife didnít have a clue what they were worth 🤣🤣👍🏻

    Quality not quantity!

    Just over a year ago, I did a SOTC for my own benefit, and discovered over 75 (working) pieces.

    That's now down to 40, I'd like to get closer to 20...

    I could have sworn I had less than 10. Have counted and it is 16. Of those 6 have sentimental value and will never go, I like all the others and wear them regularly.

    I have a modest colleciton of 13 functioning, and 10 broken (accumulated from various places over the years).

    I have, however, collated all of the watches I have owned since I was struck down by this affliction in Feb 2013, which numbers a still quite modest 150. I have also categorised by manufacturer, to wit: 28 Seikos, 14 Orients, 10 G-shocks, 12 Omegas, 2 Rolex and no less than 4 Glycine Combat Subs.

    This thread has the medicinal effect of making me feel normal

    That's the trouble - I've got at least 10 which I could never sell as they were given to me as presents, or inherited from family or whatever.

    And yes, I do wear all 13...

    Apparently I can't count. It's actually 14.

    Now they don't all fit just using one watch box. Rats...

    Err, you do know this is a watch forum, don't you?! Nobody needs more than one watch, really...

    Depends on who's asking - I haven't counted recently but estimate at around 45-50. If the wife asks, it's around half that.

    22 at last count, I think! A GO perpetual calendar & a GMT BLNR or BLRO and I'm done.

    I was well into 60 maybe 70 watches until recently, it all got a bit overwhelming to be honest and in a funny way wasnít helping with some slight mental health issues Iíve been dealing with.
    Have thinned down quite a bit now with more to go, going to keep a core selection and take the hobby into a different direction, maybe some modding or self taught watch repair rather than just hoarding
