What is your "I have too many watches" limit?

Recommended Posts

I started my collection back in 2016 and right now I have 30 watches. My goal was to have a watch for everyday of the month and I have achieved it, but I still want more watches. But what is your 'too many watches' limit?

I'm trying to upload the image of my collection but it is hard.

I'll post the image soon!

What about months with 31 days?

I started collecting needing 6 to fill the watch box, then seven, so I could wear one and still have six in the box.

Then I bought more boxes

 

I'm sick I tells ya!

Yes you do. You're just too frightened to admit it. :laughing2dw:

As I am. When you start finding watches you didn't know you had that's when it's time to worry.

I haven't got an upper or a lower limit.  I just buy when I see something I like (and can easily afford), and I sometimes sell a few to fund one more expensive item.  Typically, this would mean 2 or 3 out, to fund 1 in. 

A "sensible" amount for me would be around 20, but my collection stands at around 40 at the moment.  Of course, nobody "needs" more than 2 or 3 watches, but it's nice to have a decent selection to choose from... :laughing2dw:

2 for me - everyday and best so at the moment that's an Omega and a Panerai. I have too many other interests - cars - boats - bikes - guitars etc to collect things. Obviously if money were no object then it would be different!

I try to keep the overall total under 30 and the subtotal of Omegas at a maximum of 20. I am failing a little at present so need to sell a couple. Or invent new rules.

Mine has crept up again and is going to get "sythed" shortly. So there will probably be in excess of 60 to go. (If I don't loose my bottle, as I have in the past).

If money was no object I would like to think 6 really nice watches of differing metals and styles would be enough.  Maybe even 5.  

I currently have 13 (possibly 14 by Monday morning) and constantly forget about certain watches, how you guys can have 30/40+ is MENTAL!!

I have just sold 5 watches to pay for the overhaul of a Speedmaster 4.5 so I am down to 13 wrist watches and 4 pocket watches

I have been as low as 3 and as many as 37

but am quite content around a dozen wrist watches plus pocket watches

I have been thinking about this lots over the past few months now, change in circumstances, I got married again, changed careers, moved out all in a matter of months. Now I seem to favour my Date Just 2 as my every day beater over the rest of my collection. I got a fair few to choose from;

Breitling superocean 42

Tudor Palagos blue

Tag F1 auto

Raymond weil freelancer dive

These were on regular rotation. Perhaps a cull is on the horizon....:(
