I was looking at that dial with its 'fishy graphic' adjacent the WR50 metres thinking it perhaps should say "Don't fall in". :)

More than nice to feel you are in a happy place with the collection/rotation. Been there, bought more...."No more than 2 this year" was the resolution, but I bought 4. All brilliant. Sigh....I'm in a happy place now.
Oh wait, just pre-ordered one for April....."No more than 2 next year". Honest.

I was in a similar position about 18 months ago after I finally purchased a 14060M, I had no where to go and it all went a bit flat/ lost a bit of interest. Thought I would start over and look at micro brands, less expensive watches, buy/sell and try enjoy the journey again but just couldn’t get enthusiastic about it. Then somehow discovered IWC ( always known about them but never took any interest) :D and the chase is on again :lol:
As they say it’s all in the chase :lol:

I’m watching this with interest. Many IWC watches are quite large which has caused me to move a few on, but if they were slightly smaller I’d have quite a collection now.

It’s not the size as much as the weight sadly.

I think that’s why I over looked them before, not realising the size of the Mark range, will certainly be having a look at the MK XX in the new year, as for that bracelet... :D

Delighted to hear that! See - in the Teddy Baldassare interview I posted the other day the guy talked through his collection from early days through to the Panerai that had a very important sentimental meaning. And one of the commentators said that the watches in the first half were rubbish but they got better… :roll:
Those Casios and rotaries and sekondas and accurists and Bulovas that I used to gaze at in H Samuels on the high street -the ones I was aspirational for as a teenager - are way more important watches than the ones I own now. Because without those there is no current collection.
:thumbup:
