Perfect 3 Watch Collection

I've enjoyed the previous thread discussing controversial watch opinions so I figured why not a new topic. 3 Watches, unlimited budget I'll go first. Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi (With the Old Bezel), JLC Reverso Duoface and a Patek Phillipe Rose Gold annual calendar with a Moonphase. 

·

real life trio : Omega Speedmaster 1861 movement, Sinn 556-a, Black Bay 58 black dial

money no object : Rolex Submariner 6536-1, Omega Speedmaster 321 (the new one) and Patek Philippe Calatrava 5196 R

·

Breguet type xxi

Blancpain FF titanium

JLC master calender

I retire

For me, the perfect 3 watch collection is a 4 watch collection.  My current collection I have now plus a DJ41, which is on order.

With an unlimited budget, it would probably be these 3:

Can't lie am a bit jealous of those three, I think the no date Submariner is one of the most aesthetically pleasing Rolex designs out there.

My no budget three would be:

Rolex GMT Master 1675

Rolex MilSub 5513/5517

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Self-Winding Silver Dial.

Realistic 3:

My GMT

My Grandfather's Seiko 5

A tie between my CW C60 Ombre LE and my C65 Super Compressor.  I love both of these watches!

I'd likely be one of those over wealthy guys that drives a old truck around and no one realized I was rich until I passed away. Right now my list would be:

  1. Doxa Sub 600T Caribbean (my current fixation) 
  2.  G-Shock GW-M5610 or GW6900 cause my collection will always have one digital watch
  3.  Cartier Santos 

I'm still trying to figure out my top 3 current watches but likely are:

1, Custom Watch Build I did for myself

Image

2. G-Shock GW-M5610

3. Seiko Flighty 

Image

Potential top 3 item on queue (because it hasn't arrived).

I was going to comment however my top 3 is extremely similar to this top 3 hahaha

I always think maybe I should reduce my collection to 3 watches… but I would miss many of mine, how can I survive w/o my Moonwatch or my Polaris, etc. But in sake of the mind game: of my watches this is my 3 watch collection:

Daily beater: Sinn 856 UTC

Image

Dress watch / watch of an independent watch maker: Hentschel Hamburg Hafenmeister

Image

Sports watch and grail: Rolex Daytona

If I had an unlimited budget, I wouldn't be spending on a stupidly priced watches. And certainly not a Patek Phillipe. The prices of some of the watches here are obscene. If you get to be to be hugely wealthy, consider helping out those who are in poverty. These are watches and people are going without food.

If you have an unlimited budget then surely you could do both 🙃

I think I'd go the same route, even if I was insanely rich I think I'd try to keep my style a bit more low key. 

  1. Lange Saxonia, not the most low key, but not too blingy. 
Image

2. Speedmaster 321 Canopus Gold, again a bit fancy, but not too showy. Unless you knew what you were looking at you wouldn't know what you were looking at.

Image

3. Marathon GSAR Grey Maple Leaf, a rugged, and reliable tool watch.

My realistic three watches would be: 

DS30

C63

Navigator

if I had to whittle my collection down to only three then it’s the Corum Bubble Lucifer, Omega Seamaster Chronostop, and the Rolex Milgauss.

so that’s a daily, a dress watch, and a watch to upset people with (not in that order).

if money was no object, Vacheron Constantin 1972 Prestige, Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater, and a Patek Phillipe Aquanaut 5168G

again, a daily, a dress watch, and a watch to upset people with.
