    Down to 3 watches for me. Next year I'm thinking to get myself a more dressy mechanical watch with complications to replace one of the quartz watches.

    Not easy as I bought and sold half a dozen already in 2018!

    Definitely decided I need a divers so, 39.5mm PO or 39mm Aquis. Love both but can't decide.

    Been very happy with the size of my 39.5 PO. It wears very well. The altered end links are very clever as the bracelet comes directly off the case at whatever angle your wrist requires ensuring perfect fit and also it comes with a sliding (half link approx) clasp adjustment which was an annoyance on earlier POs

    My collection is dominated by black dialled divers that according to my wife all look the same. Really need to add some variation. Would like something dressy with interesting complications. A Dr Strange JLC Master Ultra Thin Perpetual calendar would be first choice. However I might need to raise some cash next year so some watches will be for the chop.

    I've a couple of Vostoks in the post and a Newmark 6BB on order. So that should be a decent start. A white 36mm Everest also looks seriously appealing. A bit more planning needed but I really want to add a Reverso to the fold in 2019.

    I really want a Chronometre Optimum, but it's not going to be easy to do. I'll probably have to sell some watches.

    I aim to sell about 6-10 watches that I donít wear that often. Intend to buy a Pinion Atom 39 and a Black Bay 58.

    I certainly donít intend to put any additional money into watches. If I see anything else decent that I fancy it will have to be funded from selling one or more of my more regularly worn watches.

    Twelve months ago I could not have predicted that I would start collecting watches. All I had were two broken watches tucked away in a drawer. Since then (well October really) I have three more and a fourth is on the way.

    So in 2019 I really ought to calm down and be a little more focused. I want to repair the broken ones so that I can figure out what to do with them. Then I would like to target one watch (currently an Air Ministry or Aevig Corvid are on the list). However I would like to start tinkering so perhaps a Vostok.

    I don't always end up doing what I ought to do so as fun often lurks in unexpected corners so we'll see what happens but I suppose it is good to have a plan.

    Iím aiming for two small purchases this year. Looking to add an IWC aqua timer and breitling aerospace evo night mission to the collection. Unfortunately the Monaco might need to go to keep the collection at the magical 3 number

    Iím reasonably happy with my lot and the way prices are going Iíve started to get interested in CWC , Precista ,Smiths as they are a load of bang for your bucks .

    Realistically Iím hoping to get a Polar Explorer from a mate which I sold him years ago and heís never worn ,and one of those Certinas .

    I also have a Tudor Snowflake and an Old Speedy that need TLC/Service ( Iíve owned them for years ) so if I manage to get them sorted thatís like a few incomings as well.

    went and tried on a speedy pro today. Not quite what I'm looking for and I much preferred the Tudor GMT. can see me having some quite similar watches but I seem to have a 'type'!

  20. #120
    I enjoy my BLNR beautiful though it is the blinginess can be a bit of a radar magnet.
    I'm thinking of adding the Explorer 39mm 214270 to my collection as it is near perfect.

    Zenith el Primero within the next week. Fingers crossed.
    Then itís a question of whether I trade my 16700 for cash and a 14010.
    Later in the year I hope to try a 70s Omega Dynamic.
    I want to bring the flipping under control this year. Thatís mainly a question of impulse control...

    No planned purchases for 2019 as 2018 has been quite expensive with both my wife and I turning 30 and then getting married so need to spend the year replenishing savings/investments. That being said I've been on the waiting list for a Nautilus for a while and if I get the opportunity to purchase I will not be letting it pass!

    Not sure about purchases, but I definitely need to thin the herd.
    I have a few now that scare me to wear (in terms of value increase beyond my comfort threshold), a few that I simply don't wear, and it is all contributing to an uneasy feeling that I just have too much of myself invested in this aspect of my pastimes.
    I will definitely be on the look out for lower end watches that light my fire, and may buy a few, but I think my days of working up the scale are over. I get most of the same buzz from a well-found and well-selected £200 watch as I do from one worth 10-20 times more, so I am beginning the process of downsizing significantly.

    Reading these posts make me think the hobby is dying or dead. There again it also tells me I have too many watches.

    Sales Corner will be a busy place in 2019.

    I'm going to have to make 2019 an interesting one. I have realised that after owning many many watches that I don't have a skeleton watch... So that's a start. Then on the other hand, I've got back into Gerald Genta design or inspired by him. So that a challenge too. It will be interesting to see.

    I quite fancy the Tudor BB GMT, got my name on a list... may well put the my Omega AT up for sale as I'm not wearing it. Anyone got any idea what the AT is worth as a PX against the GMT (I genuinely don't know) its a 39.5mm Blue faced on steel, it's 2014 8500 movement in pretty decent condition.

    Aiming to pick up a ND Sub, a Tudor GMT and perhaps a 36mm oyster perpetual with a white face.

    Hopefully get the sub around Easter and will review where I stand then. If I go GMT I will most likely sell my Black Black Bay to make room.

    This. Oh yes, she will be mine.

    I'll be putting a WTB out once we get the holidays done.

    I have a Newmark 6BB in order, then

    1. A PRS-45 Aerotimer
    2. A PRS-10 (regretting selling one in Ď18)
    3. The new Newmark dive watch, should it get funded

    That should be it, but never is!

    So anything I say about plans for my watch collection should probably be taken with a large pinch of salt!

    At the moment I’m thinking of selling around 6, and buying a Tudor Black Bay Bronze. We’ll see

    Looking forward to the arrival of the Newmark 6BB in the near future, watch purchase goal is to not get any more.

    Iíd like a birth year watch but being born in 1957, a Speedmaster or Seamaster are out of the question unless I win the lottery!

    Other than this perhaps another one from a Micro brand.

    It will probably be a 2020 purchase unless something else comes along but I'm quite keen on the Grand Seiko SBGM221.

    Thank you Tony. I didnít advertise it at the time but Iíve had a very lucky escape as it was picked up very early.

    Kinda puts things in perspective (Not that it stopped me buying the Deepsea - in fact it may have spurred me on - lifeís too short and all that !).

    I am happy with my collection right now, but the one watch I would love to add would be a 116515LN Daytona with the Chocolate dial and Oysterflex strap. Will depend if I decide to sell my 911 this year!

    Definitely plan on selling a few this year. The one watch Iím still thinking of buying is a Rolex Oyster 36 with blue Arabic dial, Iíd be happy with a nice second hand example if the price was right. Always the risk of seeing a really nice vintage Omega and deciding I have to have it, but thereís nothing Iím specifically seeking. Iím always on the lookout for fixer uppers and project watches at the right money, but theyhave to be cheap to be financially viable thesedays.

    I'd like a Speedmaster Professional and it will be interesting to see what if anything Omega come up with for the 50th anniversary - I guess we'll know when Basel-World comes around in a few weeks. I'd also like to see the Speedmaster Apollo 8 - the pictures of it look fantastic. it would have to be one or the other though... Apart from that, I'd like to think I'm sorted on the watch front...

    So the 3 on my list are the following:

    This Speedmaster which I have on order and have a Japanese colleague ready to pick it up for me once it is ready


    Then this is calling to me but may have to take a back seat because...



    ...I am waiting to see what the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Speedmaster will be like as that is certainly on my list!
