    Amen Brother. I have one watch at the moment so it gets a lot of wrist time. I have come to realize that I prefer a much smaller approach to the hobby and that is alright. Just feel less stress if you know what I mean.

    Is that my old early 60s Seiko Sportsman at the back?

    Edit: I've checked through my records: Yes! May 2016 :)

    Thank you! This ain't the half of it (literally). A substantial crowd continue to sit patiently in the waiting room.

    Out of my entire collection I probably wear 2 maybe 3 of them. The rest are either sentimental or not worth selling. It was good getting them out to get some shots though.

    My current SOTC, most of these I've had for a few years or more. My most recent was the RM which was traded on here and currently my favourite and most worn watch. They all get a look in apart from the 2nd spork which the rubber has cracked and broken.

    Love these kind of posts, great idea :)

    Apologies for the bad pictures. I promised myself I would learn photography during this crisis but it didnít happen!

    I think my collection might change a little after this crisis is solved but this is it for now.

    I've got pictures of most of mine up over on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/enicar_forums. As you can see my collection is a bit laser focused!

    I did though finally spend the time taking some photos to do a proper SOTC on here later this week

    This has been a pretty stable collection for the last couple of years only added the G Shock fairly recently as I kind of got a bit put off with all the mad price rises and these are more than enough to keep me happy ( love the 2 GSs ).
    Want to add a white / cream / silver dial but struggling to know what though have had my eyes open for an old GS SBGF017 for a long time though the Longines VHP is interesting and the Citizen Tsuno Chrono a little different and both of those not silly money. Really like the new white Seamaster though but no funds for that and also have taken a bit of a fancy to the green Rado Captain Cook on the BOR bracelet ( a green Sumo may be a cheaper option though)
    Anyway enough rambling, hereís the bad pic...

    Is that a red dial Stowa there? Not seen one in that colour before.

    Yes the stowa is red but sort of burgundy / slightly plum colour. Not Many around as I think they only did these for a very short time when they first came out. Brings a bit of an unusual colour to the collection.

    It's a cracking watch, wears smaller than 42mm but slim and sporty. Water resistant to 100m so good all rounder. I think I am going to order the rubber strap for it to go with the bracelet.

    Had an Explorer and thought it was too small for my wrist, but looking at it against the YM and SD43, it just looks right. Great collection though.

    The strap on the 2254 looks awesome. Can you let me know what it is?

    Woahhh!!! That Longines Ultra-Quartz is one of my grails, although even if I ever afford one in not sure the worries if repairs would allow me. Those movements are something to behold! Don't think even Paul at electricwatches services them anymore.

    Itís a 2255 with the stunning electric blue dial just a very bad picture :)

    The strap is a third party unbranded blue rubber strap picked up of US eBay for about $25. I liked it so much I got a second but havenít had to use it yet after about 4 years. It needs an omega style deployant so you can get a generic clasp but I did manage to get hold of a real one at a good but still pretty stupid price for a small bit of metal.

    I love this combination and have been wearing it as I said for years now ever since I saw someone fit a 20mm PO rubber to their 2255 on here.

    Thanks. I go through phases but try and rotate as much as poss.

    Very happy with this lot after consolidation and getting a lot of luck with the PPs.

    I would still like to do one final swap out if I ever get the opportunity - either change the 5167 for a 5164 or the 5711 for a 5712 (but Iím not complaining!!)

    Haven't done an SOTC for a while so seems like a good use of some time!

    First are some everyday/sports ones:

    Then the chronographs:

    Then the holiday/grab and go quartz ones:

    0974B7B5-35AA-4057-AAF3-F16519023EFD by Matt G, on Flickr

    Then the dress watches (including birth year Datejust):

    2EE5C745-71C6-4A7D-913F-31413B8AD996 by Matt G, on Flickr

    Finally the G-Shocks!

    4EAAF7C7-46AA-4E3E-B11D-759A7EA82303 by Matt G, on Flickr

    A final group shot:

    FEC3D8BF-CAF9-44AF-9F59-9F4AD3C260EE by Matt G, on Flickr

    There are also a few watches I have inherited but are not with me at present hence no pictures. Fairly happy with things as they are at present but do miss a GMT a bit so may swap something for one of those depending on how things pan out!
