Default Current state of your collection

Triggered by some pictures by a member in another thread I decided to start this one. What is the current state of your collection? That includes all that is watch related. I left my winder out because there was no more room. This is the current state of my insanity

Looking good, Frans. I'll have to get more organized before I participate. I have a problem you clearly do not have... not enough straps to go around.

That Benrus reissue looks positively minuscule next to your latest addition!

Actually, I tend to buy pre-order watches quite often and brands like Helberg do give you the odd strap or two extra. And I usually buy both a strap and bracelet with a watch. And as you can see that adds up.

As we say in Texas "That's quite a herd"!!!
My "herd" is as disfunctional as you can get.
(Just like their owner)
Now I'm in a move to improve straps and
bracelets. Watchadoo Pannatime etal.

Spring has sprung and the grass has riz but
I wonder where the little birdies is?

Does any WF have a freekier watch box? Yup an aluminum flight case.

I used to have a nice display box but I find it's best for me to keep my watch collection, while humble, to myself for a variety of reasons. Another G-shock is missing as well as a vintage Wittnauer Electrochron my brother has been borrowing... for too long.

Very nice, a lot of Seiko love. Did you make the dividers yourself? And one of my favourite guitar brands (next to Gretsch) is on the lid as well

Thanks, this case came already set up for watch storage. Gretsches are cool too, no doubt. I've come close many times to buying a 6120, probably my favorite Gretsch. But I mainly play Rickenbackers and even more so, boring old Fenders (they just get the job done).

Very nice Eric. Some good ones in there.

I rather like those flight case watch boxes - seen a few around

That is cool. Where'd it come? from since my watches are spread out between two rooms. I could use a nice case

I'll probably acquire a fine wood case again. This case served me well when my kids were younger and my wife was, let's say eyeing my purchases more closely. The kids are older and bored with my watches and the wife, well she's accepted my "hobbies" at this point.

Yowza, you guys have some show stopping collections, but also
ways of displaying them too with the boxes, and cases !
You know for some reason still put most all my watches back
into the individual boxes they came in, and don't have them
displayed like I should, or you guys do. ..I really need to
change that I think.

Wow, just phenomenal everyone !!!

Accepts or tolerates? I need another case as well but those wooden cases have become expensive over here. 100 EUR plus and not even for the ones with the most capacity. But I don't like the faux leather ones.

Alright, the latter. Etsy.com used to have some nice, somewhat rustic wooden cases, but I'd need like three or four of them and my collection isn't even very big. Actually there are several pieces I'll likely sell or give away. Still I'd prefer one big case.

The one I got is only $52 https://www.ebay.com/itm/6-10-12-20-...72.m2749.l2649 Should only be ruffly 47 euros.

With shipping, VAT and customs handling costs it will become about 96 Euro

It's not that bad. I'll buy one here, I'll wait for a discount at the place I bought the other one from. Or just have a better look on-line. I'm just lazy now, that's all
