Intro & SOTC

Hello everyone! New here to watchcrunch. Wanted to introduce myself and show you the current state of my collection.

I started in watches more than 12 yrs ago with Invicta. I like the brand initially when the designs were more simple, though still very large. I no longer like their gaudy styling and sold/gave away most of those. So as you can see my current collection is in transition/starting over to one I am proud of.

I have the small one Invicta in top right remaining but honestly don鈥檛 wear it much. The two in the top left are some of my original watches from many years ago, one from my now wife and other I picked up because I liked the skeletonize look. More sentimental value than actual value. The remaining four are what I wear regularly (Oris, 2 Seiko鈥檚 and Tissot). The Oris on more special occasions. It鈥檚 my favorite of my collection thus far. As you can see I am not much of a fan of rubber or leather straps. Prefer metal band or NATO strap.

My goals for my next time pieces are higher in cost 馃槵: Longines Moonphase, Grand Seiko GMT, Breitling Navitimer, IWC Pilot Chrono and Tudor Heritage Chrono. These are not grail watches but I鈥檓 pretty set on getting a few of these. The GS is a must.

Grail watch: CVDK (Klaauw) or A.Lange moonphase perpetual calendar 馃い

Thanks!

Welcome! Great collection thus far!

Some of us go through an Invicta phase and some may never exit it. No shame if you like/liked them.

The transition collection is nice though. Welcome!

Thank you!

People shit on Invicta but I cannot think of another watch brand that's given me such joy and laughter.

Invicta gets picked on but they do make some nice watches that won't break the bank. The Grand Divers in particular. And no need to apologize for what appears to be the 9404 Coke bezel NH35A Pro Diver in your collection.

Welcome, and thank you for sharing your collection. 馃嵒

Blues, whites, blacks, I love it.

Welcome! Great Collection!
