Default My modest collection

From Top left: Rotary Editions 1895 800C, Rotary Editions 1895 202b, Elini Barokas General Prime "Orange Burst, Hofun HK75, Seiko SNDD61 Chronograph, Rotary Aquaspeed Chronograph (GB00109/16B), Rotary M Diver GS030074, Timex Expedition Field Chronograph (TW4B10200)

These are the watches I've collected over the past 3 and a half years that I've actually been "seriously" collecting.

Previously I had all 14 spots filled with cheap 8-10 dollar watches that I began to grow tired of as they would wear out and look tattered.



The Rotary 800C was my first automatic and really got me into "real" watches.

The Seiko was the second piece so I would have somethif more casual.

The Aquaspeed was a wedding gift from the wife to math the rose gold ring I got her.

The Elini was an impulse buy at Sears I liked the looks and it was 50 bucks.

The Hofun was a similar buy $16 on Amazon cheap as all hell but damn if it hasn't grown on me. The strap is a eBay special but it's a massive improvement over the supplied one

The Rotary 202b is a recent addition, I really like the looks of the Rotary Edition series specifically the 800, 500, 400 and, 200. Also my first watch with a leather strap and I like it more then I though I would.

The Rotary M Diver was a random eBay find. It's apparently an Argos exclusive. Cost me under 60 with two NATO straps. It's a nice casual watch.

And last the Timex Expedition Chrono. Amazon close out deal while I was just browsing $38 all told. Only thing I didn't like was the canvas strap had fraying and just looked meh in person. Swapped for a leather NATO front NATO Strap Co and boom.


Will update as my collection grows.

Hi T.T, and welcome ! Thanks a ton for giving us a look at
your collection like this. ..Love how you already have all of the
bases covered style wise, but also enjoy how everything is so
unique too.

I mean you have dive, dress, and even aviation covered here,
and they are all different, and refreshing from the cool finishes,
and dials, to strap choices. ..Honestly, even the watch box is
terrific !

Thanks very much for the look, and welcome once again T.T

I really like both of these but I can't make up my mind which one over the other...

Modest/exclusive/expensive should not enter the equation here on WF. We respect one another's tastes and buy the watches that we like as individuals. No watch snobs here.
Thanks for showing yours

Originally I would say the rotary but now that the Timex has a leather NATO it's a tougher call.
