    I spend all my savings on watches; it's better than under the mattress: this way I get to enjoy them, and the ROI is must better than any savings account.
    The downside? When I need to pull some cash and forced to sell a piece or two [emoji20]
    From this picture I no longer have the vintage Speedy or the SM300

    I have three Omegas. I'm not a collector - I just buy a new one every 5 or 6 years for daily wear. Started with a 2002 blue dial 41mm, the same model as the Pierce Brosnan James Bond tribute watch, but without the Bond branding. I like 'em regular. I loved the wave pattern on the dial and the blue color. It was not a flamboyant blue, but rather a more classic shade of blue. I replaced it with a 2008 Planet Ocean Seamaster with the orange bezel. Yeah, this one was flamboyant. Nice 42mm case (model 2209.50) and I eventually had the orange bezel swapped out for a black one. I added a rubber strap with white stitching and deployment clasp when I had it serviced by Omega.That was my daily wear until this month when I got bitten by the Speedmaster bug and acquired a Moonwatch Chrono 44.25mm Speedy.

    As a former diver (and still a sometime recreational diver) I was always looking for watches with significant depth ratings. It colored my perception and shaped my concept of what watch I wanted. Never gave the Speedmaster line a second look back then because it wasn't a dive watch. I simply HAD to have a dive watch - it was part of who I was. At some point I realized I'm not a diver anymore. Just a recreational dabbler. Stuff changes when you have a family, and deep dives (200+ feet) are a risk I'm no longer willing to take. And no need as there is no deep water on Wall Street. Deep shit, sure, at times.

    As we started talking more and more about Mars missions - documentaries, fictional movies, NASA news, etc, it rekindled my longtime interest in our Space Program. Mercury, Gemini, Apollo. This newish line of Speedmasters with the larger case/face size was the key to my taking a look at the one with fresh eyes. And just like that -- BAM!! -- I became a Speedmaster zealot. The only downside is that it's likely to get expensive for me. :)

    Currently four, including my wife's Ladymatic. She wants a De Ville, and I have a Speedy on my list. My son wears a 1966 C-case Constellation I gave him earlier this year. IMG_20170430_174508303.jpg

    Just 2 right now, both bought from other members here: a 1966 Constellation and a 1969 Speedmaster. They join the Orient, Oris and Tudor. I'm looking at adding a Seiko now.
