How many watches do you want/have in your collection? ⏱️

Curious to see how people approach the quest for their perfect collection.

Some people may prefer a simpler approach, one watch you can go anywhere and do anything with - one true GADA as it’s been coined.

Others prefer the luxury of having a wide selection of choice, like a tin of quality streets at Christmas you’ll always find a perfect one for the moment.

As usual there’s no wrong approach I just personal preference!

I personally have a planned 9 watch collection, with some peices still needing to be attained. It’s a long term project however I am already thinking 10 is a nice rounded number… so we’ll see how it goes 😂

Happy collecting :)

I have a 12 space watchbox so I try to aim to only have that many, I feel if were to have more, quite a few wouldn’t get worn. There’s some in my current collection that I don’t wear often but will never plan on getting rid of due to their sentimental value.

Have a great day!!

Primary collection is currently closed at 9, and I voted accordingly. I don’t count my budget sub collection in collection count, because they tend to be a fun and experimental extension of the hobby. But there’s 12 in the budget collection at the moment.

Nice! I like the way of making the budget side an area to experiment! I just got a bright orange f-91w yesterday and I love it, don’t think I would’ve spent a big amount of money on a bright orange watch 😂

6 and never intend to move beyond 8. There will be some switching and flipping along the way but at least three of my current line up is never going.

I have six “core” watch box + 1 or 2 out rule with the ones out being sub 2k.

Yeah, I love using budget watches as a way to play and experiment with watches while not spending a lot of money. Some of them I'd give away to friends that show interest in the hobby. The Pagani Design watches fall into this category. This is why I separated them and don't count them towards the collection. But most often I'm wearing something from the budget collection because I only have one of the primary out of the bank at a time. So, strangely, the budget sub collection gets more wrist time on the whole than a single watch of the prime collection.

Nice, I like the approach of having a core watch box!

If I tried to count all of mine I'd probably have a couple more by the time I finished counting!

Over 120.

I have 13. I really only wear 8 of them in regular rotation. I think the perfect collection is 6-8 watches, but I voted 8-12 in your poll because I don't think I'll ever see my total number of watches owned to fall below 10.
