1. How many watches are in your collection: More than I would ideally prefer.
2. Do you have a strategy or just buy what you like? My strategy is to buy what I like.
3. What is the best number to have in your collection? n+1
4. How do you manage your yearly purchases? By stealth.

:lol:

1. 22
2. No strategy, that's how I got to 22.
3. I'd like to convince myself to 10-12. Watches can be rotate more often.
4. Spent more than 1 year without buying, in the last 2 months bought 2, as an example

11 + 1 Garmin Forerunner + 1 not used since I was 15-16.

At the beginning I would like to think I have an strategy. Now.. one I like, one I buy (if affordable).

Always one more.

Last years I go only for more expensives watches, and always covering something I dont have.

1) 18
2) prefer more conservative dial colors (black, blue, grey), trying to avoid too colorful combinations
3) 30 (60-70% are divers, rest are pilots / chronos and 1 dress watch is enough)
4) from time to time wear / wound up them and take from the watch box (no winder for me)
