Perhaps these - I'd have to spend an awful lot more to improve on them.

That PRS-22 looks very nice, simple dial but I like it. The site says its a 39mm watch, how does it wear on the wrist, is its quite small or fairly bulky?

I would have to say that my Gallet Multichron Pilot is my first keeper (I have four in all as of now), mainly because I got it from Dad in trade for a Seiko digital in 1979 or 80. It stayed in my odds and ends box until just a year or so ago, when I had it serviced and cleaned. I really like the dial configuration, and the 38mm size fits me very well.Image

All mine are keepers. If I sold any I would regret it.

The case is noticeably smaller than a "standard" 42mm diver (good for those with a smaller wrist), but because the bezel is thin it still gives an impression of being a decent size. The case is fairly deep - not too thick, but certainly not thin - perhaps a function of the shielding needed for the relatively high anti-magnetic rating. The bracelet is a winner. Some people dislike the hands; minutes too long/hour too stubby, but I like them.

I find myself looking, mainly at the smaller (38-40mm) watches due to my skinny (6.5inch) wrists.Sometimes pics dont fully convey the size or lack of it,on a watch. Either way, thumbs up for the PRS-22 :D

My Oris Der Meistertaucher is a deffo keeper for me. I love everything about it and its built like a tank. Mines almost 2 years old and looking good for a titanium watch. Never selling that one :D

Speedy will leave me via my cold, dead hands and only then reluctantly! Same with the two Seamasters as I just LURVE the shape of the case - lugs in particular. Also, the Breitling will remain as it's Lorns "go to" watch when she fancies a change and while she thinks she owns it, she bloody doesn't :problem:

Also, the Tudor is a keeper, as it's just in such fine shape for its age and it looks lovely.

Sully? Well obviously. It was my Grandfathers watch and I'm wearing it (right wrist) as I type.

I think the Roamer is a keeper, but I have been asked to sell it and I do wobble occasionally...

The rest I'm not sure about. I keep thinking about sticking some of them on TZ (as I've only half heartedly tried to sell the TAG, Tissot and Citizen on here so far) but there's a lot of them and I think I'd be taking the wee-wee! Also, change my mind semi-daily as to whether to or not! There's quite a few Seikos and Citizens to get rid of, a Bulova, a load of quartz semi posh things, Longines, all bloody sorts that I like having in the watch boxes but never wear.
