Yes, Happy Friday! BUT TAKE IT EASY ON THE MARGARITAS, TC!

For me, I'm probably always going to want a bigger rotation than that. Only 2! I couldn't do it. smile.gif

But I do respect the idea of consolidating down to fewer pieces that get lots of love, and subsequent wrist time.

Agreed all of those you mention are somewhat easily replaceable...and all great watches in their own right, IMO. So you just have to ask yourself if they would truly be missed. Yes, you can always find a Sub, but would it be the same? Very personal decision.

Sounds like you've got the fever pretty bad, though! I'm sympathetic, believe me....sometimes the itch MUST be scratched.

Maybe ask yourself the question this way: does it feel like you're trading three quarters for a dollar?

If so, then fire up another round of shots* and and get that GMT!


*Patron Silver for me.

Drunk kopping is the best, TC. Look forward to seeing pics of that GMT

:rotflmao:  Exactly...have a few then enjoy the afternoon.  Wake up tomorrow and see what is in your collection!

 

TC wishing you luck!  Seems like the ones that would be going are all sports watches, and as you mentioned can be replaced.  I like some versatility, but their is something to be said for having an all gold sports watch to replace a bunch of steel ones.  Wishing you luck with whatever you decide.

There's nothing in that bunch that couldn't be easily replaced should I wind up missing it . . . I've got a boozy lunch and then a free afternoon, could be dangerous. LOL

In the meantime:

and . . . could I live with just 2?

Anyone ever come across this article about Rolex? Quite an interesting read. Thoughts?

Without knowing the brand (well most of you guys probably know anyways) what do you guys think of this watch?

New Tan oiled Hadley-Roma strap.

The date is off-centered on the mystery watch.  The lugs point in generally the same direction.  I am not a fan of the way the bracelet connects to the case.  Would not kop.

Aquanaut homage with authentic modern Patek Belligero-baiting fonts, hands and nuts inspired by AP, Sinn bracelet and slightly askew dial markings, adding up to a dog's dinner in the quintessential style of Hublot...but I'm guessing rather less expensive?  At least, I hope so.

Nice strap, Wes. I have enjoyed having a lighter tan color paired up with my 210.



And RFX, it's a Burberry, yes? Sort of a mash-up, as mimo described....it's trying to take all those great individually inspired parts, but arriving at a sum that's actually less.

Does it come in plaid? lookaround.gif

I was inspired to get a leather strap for that one after looking at pic after pic of vintage chronos on those stitchless vintage style straps. Didn't think a vintage strap would suit this one though, so I opted for a plain HR.

Hesitated on the color for a while, but in the end I think tan looks better against the black dial than all of the various browns I was considering.

I am still searching...black and rose gold combo,.

 

I think the GO is certainly complicated, but it's a pretty smooth wear.  However, I do offer two "simple" alternatives:

 

 

($15k-ish)

 

 

($24k-ish)

 

Interesting?

 

Did you want a price on that Moser Mayu, btw?
