...... just red the earlier post about "norrowing down" to only 2 watches. I would have a hard time doing that since I tend to have a watch for every ocasion - well, actualy I have more watches than "ocasions" but I was looking already into trimming down my collection to just the once I wear - in a month. And even that would be difficult..

But those 2 watches, Seiko and Omega, are definetly something to envy.

Now, as far as what I like ..... well, lets see:

The Orca


SKX007


Blue Angels


Orient Mako


So.... those are the watches that I found myself wearing more often in a month.

I don`t make things. I make things better !

.... these are my two fave grail watches that i do not have yet ( though I have some leads on the Seiko I'm pursueing ) first is a Seiko 4589 Olympic chronometer like this one:



Second would be my ultimate Rolex aan 1803 from the early 70's with the grey dial and a gator strap as this one:



At the current market prices for 1803's it will be awhile for the Rolex, but we can all dream

If you forced me to only have 2 in my collection these would be it...

My favourite two marques? Seiko and Omega...

Why?

History and value...

Both companies have interesting histories and both are relatively affordbale. Seikos obviously are an incredible value.

Seiko as a company covers everything from $50 Seiko 5s to a Credor Sonnerie going for over $200000. What other company has everything from affordabls to ultra exotic? Perhaps Citizen now that they have the Credor and also the new high end mechanical coming out.

Sea-Gull also has everything from $100 ST16 powered watches to the $21000 Repeator...

Omega is awesome to me as well. You can get used Omegas for under $500 and for around $800-$1100 you can find a mint SMP which is an amazing watch and one of the best values bar none. For $1800-$2200 you can get a used Planet Ocean which has an interesting movement in it (heavilly modified ETA 2892 with the Daniels/Co-Axial escapement). I think the Planet Ocean is an incredible buy on the used market. While the UN bracelet is a slight step up the P.O. is so close it is scary. For the money I cannot think of a better finished watch. Check out the P.O. at an Omega A.D. and you will see what I mean.

I can look through the Omega catalogue or website and have a heck of a time trying to find a watch I don't like. Contrast this with many other marques where there is one or two watches I like and then a bunch that do nothing for me...

In the ultra highend scene I have a thing for F.P. Journe. I may never own one though...
