    Groups shots of your collection

    Hey... boring Saturday. Let's do this.

    I really suck at group shots. They're tough. Anyway here are some I've taken over the years.

    Let's see yours!!!









    From a meeting with many nice watches.



    Cheers!

    I’m down to 6 nowadays and pretty happy. 3 divers and 3 chronos.
    Only one missing as it’s on its way back from Germany.



    On its way home.

    A trio of CWC Fat Boys (well two Fat Boys and a Fat Nav actually). The Navigator came back from Olli of this parish this morning who did an absolutely superb job. I think it might be time to send him the '82 on the right and let him work his magic on that one.

    It's impossible for me to do a group shot of the collection, as they're never all in the same place at any one time.

    I did manage a group shot of the Omegas though.

    Thanks. The 2541.80 (quartz) was my first foray into the ‘luxury’ watch scene. I’ve had an iteration ever since, and probably always will.

    My wife and daughter also have versions too. Great, iconic watch.

    These are my Omegas from about six months ago. There has been some serious rationalisation since.

    Still love the original line up of SMPs though. Perfect proportions for me.

    Fascinating! As an Omega-ignoramus, may I ask why so many apparent duplicates?

    Actual duplicates I’m afraid. There’s no rational explanation.

    It started off as a mint example to ‘keep nice’ and one to wear. Then the collector’s disease kicked in and bypassed my brain.

    The Big Blue has to be one of the best looking diver chronos ever produced. Very nice.

    The depths were represented by this one... But as this link shows I sort of recovered https://forum.tz-uk.com/showthread.p...urney-and-SOTC

    Now my core is made up of these three - but with another three in safe deposit. All Panerai.

    Could be worse, at least they're unlikely to have declined in value! More worrying is that I can see the "sense" in that collecting policy...


    I will sort a pic of the full "assemblage" at some point, as I've never yet managed it - I won't use the word "collection" because that would suggest any kind of sense or theme, something which is sadly lacking...

    This is my core collection - the 126655 has been added to the “never sell” list. All others are up for grabs at some point though the 4500V is on the hold list.

    Indeed a great choice as an only Panerai.

    Thanks, that was an interesting read. Yours is the watch I'd lose a vital organ for. I hope to be able to buy a PAM in the next couple years however my max budget will be an entry level watch, I wouldn't be able to get to the value of the 1950 you have. First world problem though, I'll be very happy indeed with whatever I buy.

    It was a great local meeting of the watch enthusiasts. Actually it was arranged by a guy who opened a watch repair shot near Helsinki.

    We went to a nightclub after that and had a great fun afterwards. I keep in touch with most of the local watch people and we have these meetings occasionally.

    Agreed Andy. That's why I included "looking" in the sentence. If you can get a good snug fit then it wears well, but any looseness and it becomes very top heavy.
