I have a few watches from Kenneth Cole, Georgio Armani and Skagen. But I don't collect them I just seem to have aquired them somehow.

I do have a few Swatches from the eighties that are different to say the least!

Maybe a rephrase, I certainly dont consider myself a collector but I certainly do enjoy them. I love the self winding automatics, such a cool sound when they are running

I've got a Breitling Navitimer and my grandfathers Patek Phillipe. The Patek is my best watch!

But for some reason I've been wearing a Frank Muller Conquistador Tourbillon Knock-off! Because I tend to bang them around at work.

Default Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

I don't really collect watches, but I have more than one now and I would love to have a couple more. So, I guess I could qualify as a collector. My everyday watch is a Breitling B-1 and my "special occassion" watch is a Breitling Montebrilliant Legende.

Earlier this week I was at a Breitling client appreciation dinner and was able to try on a couple of limited/special edition Breitlings including a Breitling for Bentley Flying B which was all yellow gold and diamond encrusted. I believe the retail value on that one was almost $200K.

That dinner must have been quite some gala...
Glad that you could go..
200K on your wrist....

I love to play off watches now and again. I seem to lease them as I turn them over fairly frequently..
I just had this Glycine Combat relumed at IWW.
Wonderful watch.


Hacks, winds, is automatic, glows nicely now.

I've got several lower end watches (michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, etc)

My goal is to buy a Breitling Super Avenger or Navitimer in the next year. Anyone get a slick deal on breitlings?

No big collection but I do love and appreciate fine watches. I do have 3 Hoyers (Pre-Tag) that I cherish but one of them no longer works and can't get parts. BOOO TAG, would not invest a large sum in one if they are not going to provide long-term parts availability.
