I went on the defensive actually thinking they were real. It's my fault for not checking before. But it's also not fair to say they're all fake--which it seems you are doing.

Here is some advice that people would probably appreciate....

Speak to your father. Ask him where he bought/acquired the watches. Get some info for the members so that there is a story behind the posts/watcehs. Was one watch a gift from his wife? Celebrate a milestone? Etc.

Put some effort and people may welcome you more vs just apologizing.

i need to eventually upgrade and get a watch, ever since the smart phone era i haven't been using watches much. It was only a matter of time until a smart watch came out, not sure if i want one but here is the apple 10k luxury watch. I know its not exactly what this thread talks about but i;d like to discuss and see what you guys think. I would always opt for a classic watch but things are changing and why not get a digital one that (not the 10k one for sure)?

FAKE!

 

There, I was first.

 

But seriously, nice collection.  And preempting your request, please allow me to take the liberty of enabling the following:

 

- chronograph

- traditional pilot

- diver with rotating bezel

 

Just in case. :)

So, I've been chewing over my next watch and feel the need for something quite casual/sporty on a bracelet. Had a look at the Nautilus and Aquanaut range in a Patek boutique today and have also considered the Rolex Milgauss *but* have pretty much decided I don't like shiny bracelets.

So any pointers as to a fairly plain sports watch on a titanium bracelet, budget GBP 5-10K? I really like the look of the Omega Planet Ocean and will try that on asap, but I suspect it'll be too thick at 17mm.

Any other options?

I'd say anything with a stainless steel bracelet would be a good addition. Love your reverso!

A Rolex Explorer 1 would be perfection in that collection. IMHO you find a better bracelet than the all brushed SS Oyster.

I mentioned to everyone a few days ago I'd be in NYC on business and looking at some watches in the flesh. Flight to La Guardia got cancelled due to planes going sledding on the runway that day, but I was in Miami this weekend so I got a second chance.

I was hoping to go to the AP, JLC, Panerai, and IWC boutiques, but ended up only being able to get to the Design District area on a Sunday which meant IWC was my only option of those four. I spent some time with the Big Pilot and Portuguese Automatic as well as the Port. Chronograph Classic. I thought the port auto was really really nice in person. It fit my wrist nicely and the blue markers are nice in the flesh. I actually really enjoyed the look of the BP on my wrist but I didn't like the strap on my wrist very much. Maybe it was just new and stiff. Anyone wear this watch on something other than the original strap?

I also bopped into the Omega boutique to try on a Speedy in person. I loved it and I'll definitely be going after a vintage 145.012 or 145.022 in the next year.

He just collects them. Most he's had for a while. The first Chopard is one he just got. He grew up really poor and worked his way out of projects, so he collects watches now. The story behind the fake ones was real too. He leaves them out in the open so if anyone tries to rob the house they'll think they got them. That's why they were accessible to me and I thought they were real. The mother of pearl Daytona is his favorite.

@Winot why not get the Speedy now, on a bracelet?  Also, did you look at the IWC Ingenieur while you were there?
