Tonight I was winding and polishing my watches. I began to ask myself if I had too many watches or not enough watches. I'm just curious how many watches do my fellow WF's have in their personal collection. Please mark the poll accordingly and please comment on whether you feel you have enough or if you want more.

I have stayed in the 10-20 range for a while, and probably see myself going up from there, but ONLY with watches I am actually going to wear on a regular basis.

I have the perfect amount for me at this time 60! I will always rotate out the old with the new. When ever I get in a new batch I sell the same amount.

I'm sitting at 35 right now. I'm thinking the same thing as others. I won't buy any new watches until I sell some older ones that aren't being worn.

As many as 60 earlier this year but whittled down to 40 as of late. I am liking the 40 range but not dead set on it.

I have not thought about a limit or what is the proper amount for my lifestyle. I only know that if I like it I buy it. Most of the time I will buy more than one in a style. Usually Rose tone on Black and Silver on Black cases. Dial and hands go all different ways. A Chronograph will always be #1 choice over most movements. I like to see the hands do their thing.

As of this morning . . . I have 13. Not "collecting" anymore, but rather acquiring a few high end pieces and some daily wear watches. :)

However, I'm possibly getting getting ready to do a 2 for 1 trade, so I'll be down to 12 timepieces.

My goal is to be somewhere around 6-8 pieces.

Well, I don't have as many as I used to because I'm selling some off to get my grail. Now I'm between 10 and 20. Someday I'll get the number up again!

When I have around 15 to 20 nice pieces I'll be happy. I have around 12 keepers at the moment and about 8 or so I'll be selling and giving away.

Some of my watches I'll be selling off as they are never worn anymore. This will go towards funding some servicing and mods to watches I already have. My next purchase will probably not be at least 'til q2 next year unless a killer deal comes along.

LOL . . . If this trade goes through, I am probably done with trades (for now). :)

I might snag the Stuhrling tourbillon, Tuesday night (if there's any left).

Otherwise, my next watch purchase (hopefully) will be a Breitling for Christmas. :)

For me, it's time to stop spending my money on watches that continue plummeting in price and quality! :madd

I have around 35 or so. About 10 are older, vintage models, that I don't keep in the house. My newer collection is about 25 then...some purchased off shopnbc, some off ebay...a couple won on giveaways.
