Collection Reduction

After many months of contemplation, i've decided to reduce my watch collection. While I've enjoyed these watches immensely they don't get the wrist time others in the collection do. The Seiko SRPE57, Citizen Eco-Drive, Baltany, and Pagani Design need to go to make room for the next phase of my collecting journey.

I'm shopping for a slightly dressy sports watch. Something I can wear casually and to the office.

Some designs that have been on my wishlist for some time include the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 38mm, Tudor Black Bay 54, Seiko SKX013, and the Longines Spirit 37mm.

I would be very interested in any suggestions you might have for similar designs. I would prefer to stay under a $3,000 budget.

Any Crunchers out there have suggestions? Thank you for your input!

Have a GREAT day!

Take a look at the new Longines Conquest - gives me Aqua Tera vibes. I have an SKX013 and while it鈥檚 a fine watch it鈥檚 not in the same class as those others you mentioned.

Thank you for the input! I appreciate it. 馃榾

I paid 拢1300 for this quartz a couple of years ago on eBay. Perfect grab'n'go daily & would still leave a decent budget for something else.

Ive got a Green Willard I paid 拢500 for from the same place.

Buy shrewdly and moving up a tier doesn't have to be painfully expensive. Don't discount quartz, buy used & be patient.

This is great advice! Thank you for sharing!

I agree, the end goal for me is that 3 watch collection. As difficult it sounds. This watch collecting is getting out of hand for me. Good luck with your next chapter.

The Spirit 37 is on my short list (keeping my BB58).

How is the the quality of that PAGANI DESIGN you have??

I have always been impressed with the quality of Pagani. The PD1690 is very good. Seiko NH35A movement, sapphire crystal with A/R coating, 200 meters water resistance. No complaints. I think the only reason it doesn't get much wrist time is the size. 39.7mm for my wrist is a little large. Otherwise, it is a great watch!

Do you like the size of the BB58? I was also thinking about the BB54. Thoughts?
