Your preference

Good morning, different watch enthusiasts and collectors have different ways of going about getting their watches and building their collection. Some are based on finances, others are based on the availability of the time piece. For this exercise, let's assume we are all on the same level when it comes to finances, it's just the matter of your taste and wants. Would you rather have...

Have thought of a similar question before, glad you put this out there! I feel like I have the three-watch collection right now, except I include grand Seiko in that category!

Was meant to tick B but accidentally hit A.

I already have the Omega and Cartier I want, just waiting on my Rolex now..

I find the term "beginners" to be rather dismissive, honestly. Sure, many people chose from category D for their first watches, but many also chose them for their last one after decades of well-researched and varied collecting.

The type of watches are in the beginners class.

GS is most definitely in the luxury watch tier. Might not be as recognizable as Rolex, Omega and Cartier, though. Maybe that鈥檚 why it鈥檚 in intermediate here.

My purchases are based purely on ascetics, Is there something different or interesting about it and how does it make me feel when I wear it. I have watches ranging from Orient to Ball to JLC and Patek and I"m expecting my first Seiko to arrive today. If I love it and have the money I'll buy it (but will never finance).

There is no negative terms intended, it's just the price range in the watch collecting world helps break down categories. I have about 20 of Seiko, Casio, Citizen, Timex, Tissot, Bulova etc. in my collection that I use more than my higher end watches. They have a purpose and when they break down it's not a big loss... Try to say that when your Rolex or other high end watch breaks 馃挃馃槶.

Great question

It's less about quantity than that my daily circumstances and desires do not fit with even an intermediate level. Wait, I think I have a canned answer somewhere...

Oh, well apparently I said intermediate last week though the quantities were different and I was being a bit facetious.

"Would you rather have one $500,000 watch or 5,000 $100 watches?"

False dichotomy, get a hundred $5K dollar watches, nuyuk nyuk.

I voted C because of the brand mentioned, but GS is most definitely not intermediate! I鈥檇 put it on the luxury tier for sure!
