    I’m actually not even sure. I’ll have to count them up later. Do I count the ones I got for my wife?

    Sure, but I didn't count the ones I gave to my son - so make it 17 and add another 1998 SMP Bond Quartz and another 2016 Speedmaster X-33...

    Only this one?
    ...

    Do I have the right to be jealous?

    2 on my side: Speedy reduced, De Ville Coaxial GMT
    I hope one or two more in the following weeks. I have an empty slot in my winder, Nature hates void. And as winders are for auto, it means quartz or manual doesn't count ^^

    This sounds pretty similar to my thoughts on the subject. I currently own 3 (PO, ST1, DSotM) and have my eyes on two others. The only question is, how can I sneak them by my wife...

    Reminds me of one of my friends who is also collecting BMW M3s.... HIS solution:
    All the cars he bought were Alpine White and had an off-site storage area, so he managed to always rotate two to his main residence while storing the other ones off-site.
    Took a LONG time for his wife to discover the subterfuge!! :D

    I thought this was genius at his best!! :thumbsup:

    Heh, my watch forum signature usually reads as follows: "The trick to passing a new acquisition through marital customs undetected it simply to hold your collection to a quantity so great as to achieve the introduction of obscurity. Only with this critical element can one successfully endure the intensity of inquiry with a brave, confident response of "This old thing? You love this watch, I've had this for years..."

    Scratch that, made a trip to the local AD with my wife today and picked up a Hesalite Speedy. She was not only supportive, she was the one that told me to buy it! Of course she then picked out earrings and a necklace so it might've been self serving haha.

    Bingo! Classic Business Law 101 example of Quid Pro Quo (and a clever wife.) :)

    The real question here is the circumstance under which you drop the "Pro Quo" element in the equation and show up home sporting a shiny new timepiece on the ole south paw. If the supportive disposition remains unchanged, you sir have scored yourself a fine example of a life partner. If the disposition shifts towards commissioning the local tailor to draw up designs of crafting a fine winter coat made from your ass skin, only then does one come to truly understand the nature of the Watch Collector's plight...

    She was actually at the store with me! She must've known that it was coming because she already had the necklace on the our "wish list" lol. She's a very clever one for sure, and the bar life-partner a guy could ask for.

    Ahhh, well spoken and played... I do love to jest about my handler scrutinizing my watch intake, but in truth, she understands that this is pretty much the only thing that I do in life that could be seen as a "problem." So long as new acquisitions are reasonably spaced out from each other, I generally receive the usual "you got another one?" comment, accompanied by the customary eye roll...

    Hey, some guys commit adultery, some kick the dog and some gamble away their kids' 529 plans. I am none of these... but hot damn if I don't love me a fine timepiece with a comma in the price tag! My son is a lucky young man!

    I have 2 and they are by far my favorites among a few of other prominent brands that I have ever had
    I am willing to add another omega to my little collection if my finances still allow that within the year.
