One Watch Challenge: Sweet Sixteen

On Day 18 we now have 34% of our starting field. I have been keeping track and this is who I think is in:

@WatchYourIntruder : wearing the blandest watch in his collection;

@TonyXXX : who wishes that he could wear that Sovereign again;

@coldkey : with the sleeper Citizen;

@hakki501 : a (yawn) Seiko;

@Deeperblue : a non-Cartier;

@chronotriggered : a quartz thing;

@unseenhero : oh look, another Seiko;

@thekris : bold and bronze;

@Davemcc : testing the versatility of green;

@Stephme : a hockey puck;

@rocksinger89 : the brave little Fossil

@Edge168n : a rugged field watch, who knew?

@Velomax : Aurora's grail watch;

On the bubble:

@TheSharperTheBetter : just need to post today; the whitest watch;

@Robair : You may have missed Day One;

@Chunghauphoto : double check, I don't think that you missed any days, they may be posted a day ahead or behind. A lesser Swatch.

I am very aware that the farther that you are from my time zone the harder it is to get the picture on the right day (@TonyXXX proves this every day).

Thanks for participating.  It has been really fun to see the same watches every day in WRUW.

Last week I kept thinking about wearing all my other watches, if only for a few hours. While wounding them I could hear them call to me "wear me, stop this nonsense".

This week I feel an urge to sell a few. Can I manage with only 3 or 4? Am I going insane? I'm a watch enthusiast, not a masochist; maybe those categories don't have to be mutually exclusive?

Best not to give in to any of these thoughs.

Too bad we didn't add an accuracy element to the challenge.  Which watch remained the most accurate at the end?

So, WatchCrunch software developers worked overtime to give you the Gallery feature and just about all that you have in it is your Citizen.  That seems selfish.  Don't you want to let people see your other watches?  Isn't that why you have them? Just wear something new tomorrow.  It will brighten your day.

Would that be your low-key strategy to embarrass Seiko?

I, for one, really like my hockey puck, but I can't deny that I am getting sick of it, I just ordered new watches today and I won't even get to wear them!

Next week you will only have 10 watches to follow, I feel a sudden decline in numbers is just around the corner 😉

The JLC Master Geographic has the same WR as a Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical.  As far as I'm concerned, this thing could have been strapped to Monty's wrist during Operation Husky.

That's how it works right?

My Citizen is accurate to ±5s per year. I haven't set it since we transitioned to summer time, and it's still spot on. Too bad indeed 😜

I don't keep doing this because it doesn't hurt, I keep doing it because it hurts everyone else more and I love to watch you all suffer.

I’ve been wearing it to work every day, not just for morning coffee.  And today’s shirt is blue.  LOL
