    Self isolation needn't be boring. Show us your collection. Here's mine:
    Omega Seamaster 1948 Small Seconds LE - my favourite watch, 50th birthday gift, just love this piece;
    Omega Seamaster Railmaster non-LE - my everyday casual watch, bought on sale, a good weekend piece;
    Nomos Club Ref 701 (36mm) - a great dress/smart casual piece, but doesn't get much wrist time since getting the Seamaster 1948 LE;
    Timefactors Smiths PRS-29B (39mm) - my first mechanical watch, sentimental value as 10th wedding anniversary gift from my wife;
    Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical - my 'adventure' watch for hiking, camping and anytime I don't want to have to worry about babying my watch.
    Why time only pieces? It's just the way I like it. I have my iPhone for everything else. Although if you offered me a Speedmaster...

    Just to set a counterpoint to your time only watches, here are two more complicated Speedmasters: :)

    Why do they have Seamaster casebacks?

    I tend to favour the vintage chrono....not sure if it’s my love for F1 and old Italian cars...

    Top row left to right:
    Speedy Date 3513.50 - This is the watch that started it all for me.
    Omega Diver 300 212.30.41.20.01.003 - I appreciate how slim this diver is, the gloss black dial is awesome.
    Planet Ocean Titanium 232.90.42.21.03.001 - Nice and light, despite being one of the largest watches I own.
    Omega 60th Anniversary Seamaster 234.10.39.20.01.001 - I consider this my dressy diver.
    Speedmaster CK2998 Blue 311.33.40.30.02.001 - I purchased the NOS 1980s Omega bracelet before the watch because I was planning to put it on the FOIS, but when the CK2998 came out I switched goals.

    Bottom row left to right:
    Damasko DS 30 with red second hand straight from the factory. I think it is pretty cool that they are small enough that they will do bespoke configurations for customers. The submarine steel on this watch is no joke. Not a scratch on it, and it is my beater. I wear it on a Zulu diver 300.
    Rolex Prince 54419 in white gold. Such a cool watch. I have never seen another one in the wild.
    Rolex BLNR 126710 on jubilee. I was skeptical of the jubilee bracelet, now considering one for my Daytona. This watch is pretty flashy so I am more careful where I wear it.
    Rolex Explorer 214270 MKI - I prefer the non-luminous 3/6/9 of the MKI. I regularly tell my wife I enjoy having a Rolex that most people think is a Timex. She just shakes her head, but I just strap it on and never worry about it.
    Rolex Daytona 116500 LN - My most recent purchase. I was discussing having sold a Polar Explorer 16570 with my sales associate and how I did not have a white watch in my Rolex collection, he said he thought he could fix that. I got called a couple of days later and asked if I want the Daytona.

    That’s a killer collection. I have just 3 questions:
    1) Where do you live?
    2) What are your work hours?
    3) Can you share with us info of your leather watch case? It’s a beauty on its own.

    Your not going to get many posts... showing entire collections is kinda avoided. Some collections are large and expensive, others modest. This forums not really about things like that and inadvertently this thread kinda rubs against that.

    Need to take some new photos including the Seiko Diver and G-Shock. Hopefully I will find some time between schooling kids, sharing domestic duties, home office, taking care of my parents...

    Was going to trade the Breitlng this year as partial payment for a Blue Dial Railmaster...now I just aim to stay healthy and be able to take care of my family.

    All collections are worthy large or small. Indeed I sincerely admire small collections where you can see that each watch has been carefully curated over time.

    This is truly an example who you know and not how much you spend. I have struck up a friendship with the staff at my AD and we chat on a regular basis. I guess it was an example of right place, right time and got lucky.

    Thanks!

    For points 1 and 2, from home at any given hour. Thank you covid-19!

    3. If you look up @wristwatchme on Instagram, he sells them, they are called “the connaisseur” and they are well priced compared to other well known sellers online.

    Stay safe everyone!

    Fair enough. I don't normally get much time for social media, or even watches unfortunately! Thought this might be an interesting diversion. Perhaps share your favourite watch instead?
