That’s a nice varied collection you’ve built up. Good to see an aquaracer in there, that was the watch that I started out with, albeit an older version.

That's a really nice, varied collection. The Baltic's must feel small after wearing the other eight?

Nice collection :clap:
Brellum, Seamaster, Rootbeer are the stand outs for me too.

IIRC I nearly jumped on board the KS Waldhoff LE tourbillon project - something a bit different, in a good way :thumbup:

I really like the Rootbear :thumbup:

Far less bling in real life than some non TT watches.

It’s good to see that the secondary market prices have dropped about £6,000-£8,000 since the heights of the first half of 2022. That should make it far easier for anyone that wants one to be able to buy at retail.

I remain tempted by Brellum.

I really like this! I can put myself there with your collection if that makes sense. Often i admire watch collections as things that belong to someone else and someone else's ideas. But here i'm looking at watches that i really appreciate just from my standpoint. And i also like the shake-up - a box of watches where you obviously gone and explored differebt types and styles of watch.

Ok, so I'm really just saying that i covet the rootbeer, the all black oris (i've wondered before if this might be the Little Black Diver in my collection), the baltics, the Brellum. Nice collection :thumbup:

Thanks a lot for all your kind comments! Most of you will have realised by now that I am a bit of a watch flipper these days, but there's a few there that I think are staying with me!

The Oris actually has a deep green bezel, looks very nice close up. The C60 is the other way round; green face and black bezel, they make a nice pair. :D

Thanks, Wesley
