When I decided to put a collection together a rule I made was not to repeat brand.  I broke that rule but felt justified because one is a vintage and one modern and so different in character.   To me this is a duplicate but I'm going to live with it.

1921 9ct Rolex Extra Prima

Rolex20160720_105339

1990 Rolex submariner

Sub

Would I ever have two watches the same model? Oh no, no, no... or exactly the same? Of course not, who would be so silly ^^

Since you mentioned it... yes. As of 15mins ago fresh in from Frenchy land. A 1960 cal 591 (the one on the right) I bought this before my mum sent the 57 (I hope, still haven't gotten the back off).

Never had two identical watches but cars always seem to come as twins ever since I had my 2 635's when I was 17. I tend to buy one like it and then mum says theres another one for sale isn't there? So I get a spare one.

Maybe not so daft, I know someone who collects or maybe hoards is a better description all sorts of thing and regularly buys two. Especially books, comics and model kits at one time.

One to use, read, watch, build or whatever and one to save in the the original packaging. Don't know if he ever did it with watches I'll need to ask sometime.

I had two Big Blocks, although one was DLC'd by Project X, which gave me a Tudor version of a Day/Night...

Personally, I feel that given the variety of watches out there - and the limited nature of my own funds - it seems like a shame to have multiple of the same rather than something different. I try not to have two of the same movement (or variation of the same movement) in my collection, let alone two of the same model, and I try not to have multiples of the same brand (the only exception is that I have two vintage Longines from different periods). 

The closest thing to "two of a kind" I have is an ETA 2836 based ORIS pointer and a 2892 based Omega (pre co-axial model), but the 28xx and 29xx are fairly different, despite being based on the same manual wind moment, and both are fairly extensively modified (the ORIS with a pointer + subdial complication and the Omega having a fully custom autowinding system + bridge). I also have a 7750 chrono and a Valgranges auto without chronograph, but they are sufficiently different not to bother me.

I have the two Sea Urchins, and it was nearly a third at the weekend, except I hadn't realised the model no. of the white one I bought was the smaller 38mm version and not the full sized 43mm one. That trio would have been the three hardest to find colours. So the search goes on for the elusive white SNZF11.

Here my 2 H2O Hydra, super little watches made of Titanium Grade 5, one is black sandwich sunburst dial and the other real bronze with hardened DLC. Both having nice customized Unitas 6497 movement ;)

Nice watches, but too small and light for me LoL :) I very like the bezel change which can be done easily by 4 screws around the bezels allowing you to swapped between several Titanium / Bronze or DLC bezels, it is quite cool ;)

2 Orca Dive watches with same dial no date chromed handsets, one full bronze with original Louis Vuitton strap (which cost me a fortune by the way, and in fact not so comfortable: I do not recommend it, bit disappointed by this customized strap :huh:) Second one SS with bronze parts, with real Hippo hide strap, the best from the best, 10 times stronger than any cow leathers and totally waterproof :)
