My ~$30k Dream Watch Collection (Right Now 😉)

It’s a moving target, for sure, but I think I’ve nailed down my “realistic” dream watch collection. Not talking win-the-lottery-buy-Lange’s-whole-cata...

Awesome picks! GO does some really cool stuff, and PanoMaticLunar almost made the list; JLC’s heritage is why the Reverso won out for the dress watch spot. (Also, it goes without saying I’d have to have at least 4-5 Casios along with the dream collection as well💪)

Totally agree! I think it’s missing the pop of gold from the logo and seconds hand. That’s actually one of the little things I love about my Alpinist ‘59 reinterpretation.

You have a point, it’s awfully hard to argue with this…

What can I say? 🤷‍♂ lol

Maybe swap the monoface Reverso for duoface with black on the other side? Just to have my bases covered, of course. Haha

I get you. I think, to some degree, it’s more than the sum if it’s parts. Yes, Omega leans REALLY heavily on it, which can be somewhat souring. But, IMHO, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a historic timepiece.

I think it’s akin to rappers, celebs, and crypto-bros buying Rolexes. The article itself is still intrinsically admirable and horologically important, but it’s marred by an asterisk of sorts, due to marketing and hype.

Ultimately, I love the Speedy simply because it’s the watch I see and associate with the Apollo program, astronauts (except David Scott, apparently 😜), and the human achievement that was landing men on a celestial body other than our own.

GullibleAndroid commented on Micro Tournament Round 1 Day 2: Serica Vs. Stella Watch Company ·

Never heard of either of these brands, but in perusing their collections, I want to like the Stella, lovely retro designs and gorgeous textured dials... but that brand name font... 😬

Similarly, I like the vintage diver looks of Serica, but the lack of a brand name is a bit austere and has a feel of Aliexpress special with the "Sterile Dial" option box ticked. Tough one...
