My 4 Watch Collection - My Ideal Collection Size

I wanted to share my 4 watch collection after recently purchasing the Seiko Dolce 6020-5930 as my dress watch. I’ve always liked the idea of having a smaller collection and I think, after many watches entering and leaving the collection, I’ve finally reached a small collection I’m happy with. I’ve been trying to be strict about my “one-in-one out” policy for my collection (which is so difficult 😅) to keep my collection reasonable.

Overall, I think it’s nicely balanced; the Seiko Dolce as my Dress watch, the Certina DS Action and Hamilton Khaki Field as my sports watches, and the Casio World Time AE1200 as my beater. Now IDEALLY I’d like to only have one sports watch, but I like them both too much to give one up.

I’d like to enjoy these watches for a while before switching it up again. However, I’ve already got my eye on the Citizen Fujitsubo Titanium to potentially replace my Certina…

Oooh that Certina DS Action with the tropic strap looks nice! Great collection 🍻

Thank you! Yes, I think the tropic strap really gave the Certina a little extra flair 🔥

·

I agree that 4 is a great size

·

Yup, that covers all the bases. Well done! 👍🏼

·

I have the exact same Certina and Hamilton. Nice choices.

Hey Matteo,

This is a solid watch collection. In fact, it looks like something I am planning to build this next year or two. The citizen promaster diver is a really good looking watch but that Certina also looks very good so I’m sure it’s a tough decision for you. Good luck!

·

You got really cool pieces there! 👍

Hi, and thank you! Indeed it is a very tough decision, I really like both the Certina and the Citizen. I’d also love to see your watch collection when it’s done. I’m rooting for you 👍

All bases covered 👍

Very well balanced collection, love that Seiko! And the Casio AE-1200 is arguably the best watch made in terms of functionality.

The titanium version looks so good! Here's the site I ordered it from, it seems to be the only official way to purchase it in Canada with the manufacturers warranty.

Thanks for sharing Matteo, I’ll check out the website.

You've struck a great balance. Stop here. You've already won and you don't even know it!

·

I also have the DS action and the khaki field auto! Great choices, those are some watches with amazing value :)

·

I could never do it, bur congrats I think its very well balanced.

·

That Dolce is class!

·

I think I’d like a slim down my collection and buy maybe a Rolex, a grand seiko, a doxa, a high end Seiko daily, Christopher ward, a vertex, a sinn, a Hamilton and a u-boat! I have a problem 😂

·

Lovely collection

·

That Certina is nice. I'd forgotten all about the brand.

·

Great collection! Kudos being able to keep it to 4, very impressive. That kind of restraint and dedication is aspirational. 🫡

That's a nice collection, pretty much covered every scenario with those. Love the Dolce as a dress watch 👌

Thank you! That’s what I was aiming for, a small but diverse collection.

A well rounded collection 👍
