A three watch collection question with a twist

I thought this take on a three could be fun to try. Let's see what you come up with. 

First watch: one you could comfortably buy today. 

Second watch: one that's a stretch but realistically doable.  Maybe you've been saving for a year or got a nice bonus at work and want to treat yourself. 

Third watch: completely out of reach barring that inheritance from your unknown billionaire uncle.

Bonus points of the watches aren't already in your collection.

Here's what I came up with:

First watch: Oris ProPilot.  I was on the fence between my ball and this oris, the deciding factor was finding the ball lightly used for a great price. 

Image

Second watch: Cartier Santos XL. I thought these were a bit different until finally seeing one in person. 

Image

Third watch: Patek Philippe 5711 white dial.  Most likely I'd change my mind after seeing one in person but from a distance they're just cool.

Hmm. I think the first spot would have to go to Rolex, 36mm Datejust jubilee in steel with a smooth bezel. RefNo 126200

Image

I don't think I'll ever buy one but I always liked the design of the FP Journes. I'm not 100% sure which model I would go for but something like this probably.

Image

The third one is kind of nice on images (never seen one and probably never will) and easily my favourite Patek Philippe. It's way gone price wise for me to responsible afford it and probably (almost certainly) always will be. The model number is 5950.

Thing is: I don't look at watches that way. Just because I can afford an expensive watch does not mean I will. Two issues: (1) I do not see the value that high-end watches bring; (2) I like to mess about with a multitude of watches, buying sometimes 4 watches a month, and 4 watches the next month. That I could not do even with watches like the Sinn 556, the watches have to be dirt cheap for that game.

Category 1: a Sinn 556

Category 2: a Lange 1

Category 3: one of those Patek Philippe with all the trimmings.

And now you're cursed as I am lol

First watch: Seiko SPB143. A great everyday go anywhere do anything type watch.

Image

2nd watch: Cartier Santos. For those times when you want to ride the line between dressy and casual.

Image

Third watch: I've always pictured my grail watch or watch I couldn't imagine spending a ton of money on to be a precious metal dress watch. So after some browsing because ive never really thought about it before, I landed on the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar
