Thread: The two watch collection

  1. #51


    Rethink on my very predictable Rolex pairing with the 69 Speedmaster & the JLC tribute to deep sea alarm. Worn rarely but always feel special when I do, would struggle to part with these two.

    Me too, very much. Nearly bought one from WF a year or two back, but at 41mm & quite long lug-to-lug I think it was borderline too big for me. Love the understatedness of it.

    Getting the best pair is tricky. Especially if you want variety. Somehow, I ended-up with two vaguely similar designs, although at wildly different prices.
    And the good old CWC naval diver design from the early eighties. With an olive nato I always enjoy this, especially on rainy days.
    But. But. I’d happily swap both to get back the Rolex 116509. Never should have sold
    And, ridiculous, this was the watch I used to ‘pair’ with the 116509. Can’t remember how I could afford it....although, at retail from the local AD, it was a safe buy. To put it mildly.

    Never really liked it , once I used it. The bracelet and clasp were poor , at the price, in my judgement.
    So, for me, the 116509 Rolex will always reign supreme.
    Just love it, sigh. One watch to last a lifetime. Except idiot me sold it to a dealer.
    I’l never sell a watch again. Those days are over for me. But it was fun.....part of the ownership experience.

    I've had at most 2 watches for most of nearly 3 years now. Had a slight wobble when I had 6 around 8 months ago but quickly realised I don't want that many again.

    Currently...

    Aquis titanium





    And Newmark 52




    Might end up with the Aquis only as that was the plan.

    If I had to go down to two watches, this could work as the perfect rotation.

    Difficult choice when there a 40 or of the things......but on the basis of one has to be a diver, the other GMT......
    But I could easily change my mind on the GMT....1655???

    There is zero chance of me getting down to two. I have 13, including two g-shocks and a few cheap Seikos and love and wear them all.

    If someone held a gun to my head, Id pick my 14060M and Speedy Pro as my two, but Id feel down and would soon add more.

    Tough one but if I had to go down to just two then the following could well be an option for me.....

    If I had to keep just one diver and one chrono... it would be these two:

    6215-7000, April 1967.




    6139-6000 Silver Proof Pogue, July 1969

    That is a nice collection!
