I just though I'd post this pic I took earlier while organizing some watch boxes. Full disclosure I have at least 50 watches so this is less than 1/2 and possibly only 1/3 of the collection, I got a sh*t ton from Seiko and Timex. Maybe it will make some others feel better about their own watch hoarding collecting issues. Unfortunately I don't tend to flip much so they just seem to accumulate... I'm hoping not to add anymore this year but with a couple of weeks left that's highly unlikely. 😂😂 I don't have much direction or have any real rules that govern my collection. I just kinda buy what I like! I do seem to have an obvious focus on mid sized sport watches with a few outliers mixed in. I also love me a good chronograph and I'm a big Seiko and Hamilton fan. At least they're not all black dials 😜 Any thoughts? Let me know what you think. Anything I'm totally missing out on? Would you rather have this collection or trade up to 1 or 2 watches? Are they all crap? Which are your favorites? Which do you hate? Do you own any? Share a pic! If you got the bug bad like I do, I'd appreciate it if you shared a SOTC pic too! It might make me feel better about my collection 🤣😂🤣😂 Let me know If you have any questions on a particular watch or strap and I'll try to answer them.

Saw this post again (and that bandana) and it reminded me of an Al Pacino film I saw many years back. Aside from the usual murder and mayhem, the subtext ran along these lines--which comes back to you bandana: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handkerchief_code

Sorry Ray, contrary to the bandana color I'm not a big fan of double fisting.... So I hate to disappoint but definitely not your huckleberry if that's what you're in the market for. Jokes aside, thanks for the link it was interesting read. I actually used to hang out in the Greenwich Village in the mid-late 90's and you did indeed see many people rocking bandanas hanging out of various pockets. I guess now I know why. Maybe a "watch code" should be developed using a matrix of dial colors and band materials? Or maybe it already exists and I'm just not in the know...Double wristers = double fisters? and never trust a man that wears his watch on his right wrist... Which Pacino film btw?

A) I alway wear my watches on my right wrist (as do all men "of wealth and taste"--keeps the crowns and pusher from interfering with my hand. That, and I'm left-handed. And if you still don't get it--have a word with my friend Steve:

B) That film was "Cursing"--off-beat movie but a hell of a soundtrack. Here's the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSpbPGJUBBk Here's the soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnKSJrvncGY
