Tiny vs big collection? (Post yours)

I have a strange obsession with having only 1-2 watches. I think it has some benefits:

  • Not having to overthink what to wear or what to bring on a trip.
  • Not wasting money.聽
  • Not worrying about theft.
  • In my mind it's just "cooler". 馃し

Ironically, collecting watches wastes a lot of time. And I really want to spend more of my free time outdoors or with friends. 馃槙 Or even at home but something more active. (I love driving games but I don't have the required gear at the moment.)

Tiny is maybe less versatile? But I'm not sure what else I need. A comfy titanium watch for general use and "dress up" occasions. - Plus a G-Shock for sports and dirty work or just really hot days (I love wearing it really loose in summer).聽

A big collection is maybe great for figuring out what you want and need? But I just end up wearing one or two and the rest get sold.

Are you happy with your collection? (Post a pic.)

And do you feel happy with the hobby in general?

I have moments where I consider having a smaller collection.聽

I have moments where I consider never buying another watch.聽

Then I wake up in a sweat and ask the wife to cuddle me and I get over my bad dream. ;)

By the way do you wear the Star Wars ones often or is it more just for fun?

The R2 & Darth Maul are kinda awkward on the wrist, but the battle droids & pit droid get worn occasionally.聽

I thought about getting rid of my entire collection, and just keeping the GS SLGA015. 聽Then, I got the SLGA015, and realized that I could never be monogamous with my watches! 聽The only way I can stay monogamous with my wife, is if I am polygamous with my watches.

I also got a small watch collection.

Not by choice though... 馃槄

I dream of smaller collection. This is my main collection I have another box watches I wear less often.

For me 5 watch collection would be ideal, but I have really hard time thinkig what watches I would move on.

But I don't agonise over it. It is what it is.馃槉

Less is more. 聽I have 4 watches and sometimes think it's too much.

I think of that and think of all the moments of life that most of the watches represent. For e.g. Impulse buy, buying when I was drunk, liked it on someone鈥檚 wrist so I wanted it, I needed something to match my wardrobe, etc. Did I miss any obvious ones馃? Life is full of these moments and there is a watch for every occasion.聽

I鈥檓 happy with the current state of my collection. 聽There鈥檚 nothing I鈥檇 like to cut and little that I 鈥渘eed鈥 to add. 聽That doesn鈥檛 mean I don鈥檛 have goals or irrational desires when it comes to my collection but I鈥檓 in a good place to relax and enjoy the current state.

With so many fabulous timepieces out there I just cannot understand (funds aside) how you could possibly think that fewer beautiful things is better than more beautiful things!聽

I don't wear the same outfit every day.聽

I don't listen to the same song every day.聽

I don't eat the same food every day.

Variety all the way for me and a limitless collection.

I dunno.. I like the clean minimalist look. And yeah I don't have money so whatever I save in one place I can use in another place.聽

Your two-tone Rolexes are 馃敟 including that Oysterquartz Datejust. I don鈥檛 know if Tissot has ever come out and said but IMO the PRX takes its design cues directly from the Oysterquartz. that鈥檚 a good thing.
