Suggestions For 5 Watch Collection

Hello all! First time posting here. I wanted to see what everyone though about the next addition to my collection should be.

Current 5 watch collection:
-Rolex Explorer
-Omega Speedmaster Professional
-Omega Seamaster Professional
-Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical
-Seiko SKX007 (modded with NH36 movement, ceramic bezel, and domed saphire)

i don’t plan on getting rid of the SKX, maybe just relegate it to drawer status.

Really want to get a Tudor Black Bay 58 to replace the SKX007. I tried on a new Submariner and it was too big, blingy, and sat on my wrist like a brick. The BB58 has the vintage styling that I like and I think would compliment the modern look of my Seamaster, which is a perfect summer watch for me. Hot weather would be for the Seamaster/BB58. The Speedmaster is great for cooler weather, while the Explorer/Khaki Field can fit in with any climate.

That said, I was thinking about a vintage Omega Constellation to mix things up. Maybe something with a tasteful moonphase that I think is a really cool complication. I don't dress formally really ever, and if I need to put on a suit the Speedmaster or Explorer would do just fine. I don't have a real desire for a dedicated dress watch, but I've been thinking I'd like something that showcases horology with a cool complication like a moonphase. Maybe something handwound with a display caseback to display a nicely finished movement. My Seamaster is my only watch currently with a display caseback. Not necessary, just a thought. I was looking at Longines master collection, Glasshutte Original (likely never going to get a Lange), JLC master control moonphase, even Meistersinger.

Sorry for droning on. Just looking to see what everyone might think would be a nice addition to round out my collection.

I was gonna say dress watch not because you wear  a suit often but rather because you like the design of a certain watch they still can be dressed down with casual attire. I don’t wear suits either but I like the look of a reverso and a Tank.  obviously they look great with a suit but they also look great casually. I was just thinking with a seamaster maybe a BB58 is overkill ? But the blue one is nice. maybe blue Omega Globemaster on bracelet , or venture in To Grand Seiko ?

I think you could use a casual piece that could double as a dress watch. If you are already looking at GO, the Panamatic Lunar or Panoreserve would be amazing.

If you want to spend less, do what I do.  Grab a Cartier Tank Must XL on the bracelet and add an extra strap.  On the bracelet, it’s a great everyday casual piece.  On the strap, it’s a brilliant dress piece.  The quick release bracelet and strap make it a breeze to swap.  If you have the wrist for a Speedy Pro and Seamaster, you can easily wear the XL.

I would choose the BB58 if you’ve tried one on!

If I was you I wouldn't get any of the watches you've mentioned. 

The reason being that it doesn't sound like you are really that fussed about any of them and it's more of a box ticking exercise. 

You already have a great collection, so I would just wait until you find that watch that really sets your heart on fire with how gorgeous it is. 

That'll be the one to get.🍻

The look, feel, comfort, quality and price of the BB58’s (Gilt & Blue) is in my opinion, astounding.

I want to like Cartier, but meh. I don't think it matches who I am.

My wrist is only 6.25" but with the lyre lugs on the Omegas it just seems to work.

This is probably the greatest watch collecting advice I've gotten

I have and I like it much more than a modern sub. My dealer wants me to put a deposit down (50%) and they'll earmark the next one in for me, as they don't have any on bracelet. It's completely refundable, so a low risk proposition if I don't like the actual watch in the metal

Thinking about vintage...Constellation or Seamaster. I guess I like Omega. Thoughts?
