5000 dollars collection?

You have 5000 bucks to build a 3 watches watch collection, what would you buy?

·

Tudor Ranger, Longines Conquest V.H.P., and Hamilton Pulsar. Even at MSRP, this should be just under $5000.

Puts me just a touch over $5k, but these are my initial thoughts.

Recent picks:

Everyday, Towson Watch Company Cadet $1250

Image

Diver, Zodiac Super Sea Wolf pro diver, $1495 in steel (the picture is my titanium one, but steel is more common)

Image

Casual dress and a quartz, as I like having one in the collection, Tissot Perpetual Calendar $450

So for £4,224. Large Solarbeat Tank from Cartier for £2,660. Seiko GMT Orange dial for £400. Christopher Ward C63 Sealander Jura Green for £770. 

About £400 left for different straps and coffee.

·

Eh, seamaster or speedmaster, apple watch ultra, and one of the various homages I like — maybe an Invicta 1953, or a Pagani 1729 or 1694. None of those are dressy apart from a different strap on the Apple. Can we spend the change on straps?

oris aquis on bracelet $2200

Squale 60atmos $1250

Doxa 600t $1550

Daily/Field/Complication: Christopher Ward C63 Sealander GMT

Image

Dress: Orient Bambino 38mm

Image

Diver: Tudor Black Bay 58

Retail today is: $250, $1020, $3475 = $4745.
 

The BB58 on a bracelet puts me at $5095, but I think I would make that work.

Panerai PAM 005 €4000

Nivada Grenchen Antarctic Spider €900 

Lorus Quartz Mickey Mouse watch €100

I’d buy preowned to get the best value:

Black Bay 58 $2,900

GS SBGW231 $2,900

Casio W800 $20

total: $5,820

It‘s over budget but I think it’s worth waiting a little longer to save up for. This is actually my current collection and I love it!

Whole View of Q Timex GMT 38mm Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch Stainless-Steel/Black 6.0

·

Preowned: Omega Aqua Terra, Oris Aquis, and any G-Shock (pick your favorite).

If I had to go new: Monta Atlas, Farer Stanhope and I’d still go with an Oris Aquis as my diver but I might have to buy it on rubber to get it to fit under budget. I think I’m $100 over on bracelet.

I'm gonna go with 3 watches that I don't currently own (cause that's more fun!):

Plenty of $$ left over for a couple of extra straps.  Something a little dressy.  Something a little out of left field (love that magenta color), and something solid and no-nonsense (and to finally get that German Flieger!).

It’s a good thing my preference is for the older models then isn’t it? I didn’t state ‘new’ or ‘current’ either. I actually like the ones without the wave, and the older planet oceans are nicer too, to my eye. Was browsing a moment ago.

But, I am unlikely to be buying. 
 

edit:

here, funnily enough, is one that I think is current model, and would leave change from the 5k imaginary money that would be just enough for the three watches I suggested, off the cuff. I still prefer the older models tbh.
