Personally one watch wouldn't do it for me  , I have far too many interests in things mainly vintage  so tend to wear  something that suits what I’m doing , where I’m going or even what I’m wearing , the only new watch I wear is to work as a old watch just wouldn’t  last,  the rest are either vintage or tell a storey ie issued military , for me and this is only my opinion and maybe controversial but for me new watches have no soul and remakes or reissues just leave me a bit cold , I don’t do shiny and I don’t do bling
