The state of my collection today. Three Rolex, a Tudor, and two quartz, a Grand Seiko and a Citizen. I have owned many watches in the past, probably 150 overall, across all price levels. Mind you, not all at the same time; the most I have had at the same time was probably a bit more than dozen. A few years ago I started downsizing and traded 6 watches for a Submariner (that was in 2016; I gave 6 watches worth 60% of the value of the Submariner which was LNIB ... I guess I got lucky on that one!). I sold the rest and saved the funds, saved some more money, and gradually bought the two other Rolex and the Tudor. I bought the Grand Seiko as a grab-and-go and for business traveling (I lost my previous job due to Covid-19, I had regular travels acorss North America - not anymore in my new job), and the Citizen for leisure traveling (I don't like bringing expensive watches outside the country or at the beach/pool).

Pure class, nothing more needed as each piece speaks for itself.

Exactly what I did!

In the boatload of watches that I have owned all through the years, I have had two Oris, the older models with ETA movements... A black dial diver, and a blue dial diver. Great brand, with their own rich history and unmistakable style. Can't say I'm appreciative of the price of their new in-house movement. Everyone and their smelly aunt wants to do in-house now, and frankly I don't see the mystique around it, except maybe for $10k and up watches. Even Tudor, I'll take it any day with third party movement inside and $2.5k worth of price savings, I have no problem with that!

A quintessential collection--no fat, no fluff!

There was plenty of fat and fluff before! But I shed most, if not all of it 😅
