Similar circumstance, here!

Exactly 13 watches . . . 6 Autos, 6 Quartz, 1 Manual wind Tourbillon which is the greatest thing since sliced bread because I never thought I'd own a FREAKIN' Tourbillon in my lifetime but it's sittin' here right beside me doing that damn trance thing with the tourbillon cage and I keep watching then get totally sidetracked from what I was doing . . . but otherwise, it's OK! :)

I got 10, I had a quartz, but gave it to my son, I have terrible luck with Quartz, so now I only buy and collect auto or mechanical. the last watch I got was the SWI limited edition #065/300. nicest watch I own in an auto. I also have an Invicta Mechanical Chrono, a Christophe Skye All Date model. 2 lucien Piccard Autos and a couple other brands.

Have not counted lately, but I think around 50-ish or so. Selling some of them off and taking the collection in a different direction. The HUGE ones have gone, like Russian Divers...just cant wear them enough to justify them...they are a no go at work.

Going with my first love in watches...back to the G-Shocks. Also my Invicta Pro Diver's...realizing that 40mm is not too small.

That SWI LE must be gorgeous. Do you have a pic?

Is it the 3-hand model?

Lior's whole SWI LE series is just gorgeous!

I'm thinking of getting one. I just don't know which I would prefer (and wear). :)

TV I would never sell a watch on Freeks, Geeks, Ebay or anywhere else again. All my watches get sold too family, Friends, and co workers. I have said before I have never lost more then 10% on any Invicta I have ever bough and the reason is either I buy them well or I sell them too people that have no clue what you can actually buy them for. So with that said you wouldnt pay what I will get for them.

Example I have a Invicta triple black Elite Chrono on a leather strap that I paid $115.00 for and I have it sold for $110.00!

Love the fact that you are honest about selling. I feel a good deal between a seller and a buyer is if both go away feeling good than it is a great deal for each. Thank you for your honest approach to us. It is foolish to try and baffle a watch geek/freek on price. Why put everyone through it. No good can come from it. CARL

BUT, after that look out . . . CW Henley Auto on alligator . . . . . . . And then I will invade the Japanese model market heavily!!!!!! I keep harping on the Japan watches, and I am dead serious . . . I love what I see, and MUST own a number of them.
