    Let's see your watch collections!

    Reading another watch thread here and not wanting to totally derail it gave me the idea to create this one. Let's see what you have and if you could list the model to the best of your recollection in case anyone else is curious about picking up a similar watch.

    From left to right:
    Omega Planet Ocean 2500
    Christopher Ward C1 Russell
    Orient Millennium with a Hirsch Grand Duke strap
    Victorinox Swiss Army chronograph (can't remember the name of the aftermarket strap at the moment)
    Citizen EcoDrive
    Timex Weekender



    A close up of my more favorite ones:

    I don't have any family shots but here is my current collection.

    Omega Seamaster 168.022 circa 1968


    Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic H325150


    I am bidding on a watch that I used to own. I am kicking myself for selling it a while ago and hope to add it back in my collection.

    Left to Right:
    Timex Weekender
    Citizen Nighthawk (gift from the Mrs. 6-7 years ago)
    Rolex Datejust (wedding gift from the Mrs. 5.5 years ago)


    I'm really considering picking up the Orient Ray, just not sure which color to get. I really like the navy blue face/ring, but I'm not sure how versatile it is. Also, I'm thinking about swapping the bracelet on the Rolex for leather (maybe cordovan?). Thoughts?

    BremersM - The only watch I kind of regret selling was my Steinhart OVM.

    MarkB - Nice. The Omega was my wedding gift from the wife. I guess they feel guilty that we get shafted on the rings so this kind of evens it up a bit. I'm considering buying a Mako or Ray also. I'm thinking of going with a blue face since it's similar to my Omega SMP300 I sold last year.

    Cool

    I've caught the watch bug recently, but I'm just getting started. Two more are currently inbound. Stay away from Watchuseek if you're weak-willed, is all I can say.
    You can pretty much tell which ones are quartz - the ones that that show the same time.

    Front to back:
    Orient Star Somes (blue dial) - automatic not quartz, I took it off for the pic
    Laco Vintage, Sea-Gull Rodina
    Movado Titanium Bold, some quartz Seiko
    The Timex Easy Reader Joe just featured, and a Timex Ironman

    On their way: a Bombfrog tactical diver and a funky-looking Seiko to have fun with straps.

    I have to say I like leather on Datejusts. Nomos do a nice Horween Shell Cordovan straps for EUR60.00. I think the lug width on the DJ is
    20mm so you would be looking at straps for the Nomos Zurich - http://www.nomos-store.com/en/Watchstraps/Zuerich/
