This gave rise to an interesting experiment. As soon as I saw your pics, but without paying any attention, I thought to myself - I will look at them and see which ones I would want to own myself.
So here is the result. I assumed that I could have any or all of the ones I wanted for free but could not sell them, so taking value out of the equation entirely, and that by ownership, I have to actually want to wear them with some frequency. With those conditions in mind, I would only want a few:
1. Explorer
2. The GMTs. Because they are free, I would take all three. If I had to choose one, I am not sure and would have to try them on. If that is not allowed, I would probably go with the pepsi. But I like each of them.
3. Sub
Done.
I love chronos, but the Daytona doesn't really appeal and for most occasions when I need a timer, the sub would be fine.
None of the Panerais appeal and would ever take wrist time from the explorer so none of those.

Isn't that interesting? Out of 25 well-regarded watches, I only like a few. I think that is because zippyh has pretty focused taste and it doesn't line up with mine.

I wouldn't have pegged you for a gold/steel blue dial sub guy unless you meant the Seadweller.

I have stuff besides Rolex and Panerai.

@aleksandr I knew our tastes would cross. I have a crazy Lego collection in my basement. So awesome to know there are other (crazy) people like me.

I just wanted to say that I've lurked hard core in this thread over the years. Read almost all of it. I really appreciate the discussion and I've learned a lot. I've never been put off by any "showing off" or narcissism. It's a thread to look, appreciate, and discuss. And, I thoroughly enjoy it.
