How many do you own? Are you happy with them?

Here are my end-of-2022 thoughts on my watches..

My daily watch most of the year is this 38mm fieldy/piloty Casio.

It's titanium (very comfy), looks good, and the LED light is good without being too bright at night.

The flat back side and light weight are gifts from ChronoThor (the god of watches).

Image

I mostly want brighter lume and a longer chronograph (it's limited to 90 minutes). And I really want a titanium strap with a quick micro adjust.

Image

And my second one is a sporty G Shock. 

Image

In the summer it's really good for sweaty days. And it has a few functions I need sometimes like the longer chronograph, step tracker, or the strap that's very quick to remove compared to my fabric ones.

But it's kinda huge on my 6.5" wrist (much bigger than the regular G squares) so I'm really hoping to find a smaller titanium replacement someday. The plastic is also really uncomfortable at night sometimes. Not sure why.

Image

And my third is this Citizen that doesn't really get worn anymore.

Image
Image

I like the 43mm size but the 50mm lug to lug is a bit much for me (though that size might be fine if it had a comfy stock bracelet with quick micro adjust). 

Thinking I might sell this and the G and use that money for some work stuff I need. 

I think my back is getting better so I might be able to get back to work in the next few days (as I mentioned in some earlier posts I was stuck in bed for a while which sucks so much ass). 

What I feel I'm missing is one really beautiful watch to be my "dress" watch for special occasions. But that's maybe sometime in the future. I'm not in a rush and I can't buy one now anyways. These two are nice looking to me but won't be comfortable (back side not flat and no quick micro adjust) so for now I'm just keeping my eyes open.

And I've been thinking about this one for a daily watch upgrade someday but it's heavier and it's close to a grand if I want a new one. I guess maybe I'll try it someday if I have that kind of money to spare.

Obviously I have 12 as this is the minimum requiRed for ISO certification to become a watch nerd. Nope not happy with them (Continuous improvement requirement) to maintain certification) at least 6 will go at some point as I refine.

The most I have owned is 43, I now only own 27. I once read a post from an enthusiast on a forum who claimed he could wear a different watch every day for five years and still not get to wear his entire collection

Wow. 

Also 43 is quite a lot. If each one of them was a millimeter long they would cover my Citizen watch. 😅

13 now, and very happy with them. Almost at the end of my collection; there's only three I'd like to add, and they're not even super expensive, but really hard to find. 

·

I have 8, soon to be 9 watches. Of those , I regularly wear half and occasionally wear the other half depending on wardrobe and activity. 

·

first, what a superb collection!

second, I'm sitting at 10 at the moment and fitting the urge to consolidate down to half that.

·

i got 8 for now. in searching for gada, chronograph and nicer dresswatch 😂

·

I have 27.

Am I happy with them? Sad to say, I am not. I am content for the moment, but I need to pare down the total & want to upgrade a few slots.

Life is short and time is telling.  I am sad for every one I let go and happy for the shiny next one.  I think that makes me a watch street gawker of sorts... ~15 watches in rotation..

I thought you were gonna give a very big number. But yeah that sounds good.
