Watch collecting logic - help me out 🤷‍♂️

Spend 6k on a watch… or 3x smaller brands and get 3x the variety and fun? In the examples above is a bb36 really worth 3x a cosc Christopher Ward? Is...

Yeah kinda thinking gives the opportunity to acquire different types of complications and styles.

Easy as you could totally swap to Tea and live a happy-ish life 😝

I was waiting for someone to make this comparison haha… but I didn’t want to be the one 😂

It’s like do you want 1x 10 and get bored eventually or 3 or 4x 5’s and swap, play, mix it up throughout the week 😂😂😂

Yes actually that’s a very very good point. Something I’d totally lost consideration of.

Yes. Hmmmm. Curve ball. Thanks 😂🙌

Just checked your profile out… you got a ton of really nice not too costly variety there 🙌

So yes you are right I do badly want to get back into Rolex.. because sometimes nothing else will do. But right now, I’m like wow, look at all this lovely fun and really decent other stuff that ticks all these other boxes along the way. Like say max £2k per watch.

At the lowest Rolex price point it’s still basically 3 for 1…

Yeah totally. I’ve owned Rolex. I have a Grand Seiko now.

I know the cheaper watches are going to have certain lack of refinements in some areas.

But I’m craving variety.

I bought my spb333 at a proper knock down price as was supposed to be a beater whilst I daily my GS but the spb gets a ton of wrist time.

So looking at the price of something nice but still “mid” it’s like “why”?
