I'm a wristwatch junkie...pocketwatches too, but for collecting, this is my only wristwatch that I would consider collectable. An original Elgin BW Raymond from the 60's. It's new old stock with original box, papers and the signed leather band. The band now is stiff from age and will crack if it's bent. Original price was 79.95.

We need to know your budget.

My first (expensive) watch was a TAG, then Rolex, then Breitling. Considering the Anniversary moon watch from Omega right now.

Rolex Datejust, 2-tone
Rolex GMT Master II
Omega Speedmaster
Cartier Tank
Boliva Tank, 1943 14k rose gold
Tissot T-touch

Most purchased in the early 70's when wrist watches were much more affordable. Tissot is the newest but it's 5-6 years old and is my everyday watch.

Default Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

My everyday watch is a Citizen Titanium Chronograph (Solar Powered)
Had it for over 10 years and no batteries.

I also have an older Pulsar Chronograph that I no longer wear. About 15 years old.

I wear this one when we go out.


I couldn't find pics of my other 2 watches. And the pic I tried taking with my phone looked blurry.

Just realized all of my watches were gifts from my wife. 2 before we got married.

And I have one that I received for my 5 year anniversary at work. I wear it when I don't want to break or lose me other watches.
Not a bad looking watch, but it was free.

The two watches I really want are a Rolex or something by the IWC.

I have a Breitling Colt GMT that I bought about 2 1/2 years ago, just after my divorce. Think I might have to replace it soon - getting married next summer.

Unfortunately I don't have the cash to be a collector of watches. Someday maybe because I love them. This one gets the most wrist time.



I also get quite a bit of wear from this one.

I bought this Oris a couple months back. With the rubber strap, it's very comfortable.

I've been wearing the same watch for 10 years now but I still think it's pretty cool. Raymond Weil W1. I think for my next one though I want something a little less chunky and more comfortable.
