    So I managed to get most of my watches in a single shot. Took me 30 years

    Wonder what your thought process is each morning to decide what to wear!

    We'll let you off then, but how about a few close ups of each box so we can see what's in there.

    Suddenly, any guilty feelings from having more than one watch evaporated! Have you tried to wear them all at once.......?

    Those are some meaty watches - you must have a mammoth wrist! Great collection.

    Great stuff! Whats the weird looking green one in the top left box?

    My old clock used to tell the time and subdivide diurnity; but now it's lost both hands and chime and only tells eternity. PH

    And I thought having 26 watches was excessive, youíve made me decide to buy another watch box.

    Definitely a keeper for me, I remember buying the steel bracelet for that, the most expensive watch accessory I had ever bought at the time.

    I feel like this should be one of those 'guess the number of jellybeans in the jar' competitions, but this time it's 'guess the number of watches in the box'. Do we win a watch if we get it right?

    Good grief, that is a lot of watches

    I topped out at 26, went down to 14, bounced back up to 21 and Iím on a steady descent now (18 at the moment and intending on going down to somewhere close to a dozen).

    I have finally decided that I wonít keep a watch Iím not wearing - I guess thatís not part of your thought process, OP!

    Think it was asked further up the top - a list would be really interesting!

    Well done and thanks for sharing!

    Rusty, it's a box I found many years ago for a bargain price, I have been looking for more every since, there are no 40 watch boxes out there at all at the moment, I have spoken to suppliers in China who want me to order 100 of them and they will start a product run, as it stands currently I am getting nowhere, as i could really do with another one or 2.

    Cracking collection. I find it difficult to let things go tto so I expect my collection will reach that size eventually.

    What games can you play on the Game Boy?

    I'm pretty sure it's Span of the collection :)

    What I like most about it, it's that the fun element is still there, lots of it!
