CT, out of interest, has picking up the seamaster dampened the love for your other watches? From the point of view that there's a leap of quality so you are wearing it all the time? I've accumulated a larger number of sub 200 euro watches over the years, all of which I like and wear at different times.

Pondering a speedmaster for quite a while now, and often I find myself wondering if picking up one much higher quality piece will lessen my love for the rest of my bunch!

I do wear the Seamaster quite a lot, it's probably getting as much wrist time as all the others put together but I still wear my Hamilton Khaki Field, my San Martin and Stowa regularly.
So out of the 24-25 watches there are 4 or 5 I regularly wear and about half the others I would consider wearing at some time but about 8 or 9 I probably will only try on in the future.

No filter here - this is pretty much the blue the Tudor is in flat Irish light. It changes in sunlight and when the sun goes down.

Looks great. I’m thinking about this one.

Glad to hear the Stowa and omega are getting plenty of wear. It’s an interesting question re if one good watch puts the rest in the shadows. I never had anything to fancy but I found when I had the aqua terra, Seamaster 300 and speedmaster I often ended up wearing the speedmaster most and a ghsock metal for other times where I felt the speedmaster would get beat up. I mostly wear the speedmaster these days but I do have a seiko diver incoming as I missed the dive watch aesthetic

I've a Speedmaster Pro and an Oyster Perpetual and this is what I wear when out and about.

Seiko 'Arnie'. Banie has the same. Love it myself.

I've been eyeing up the Arnie for a while now.

Mine was for sale last year, then I started wearing it again and withdrew it.
But, recent acquisitions have put it back to the bottom of my rotation.
If you are looking? There is most certainly a good deal to be done on it for a parishioner here.

So was threatening to sell my Oris and then buy a BB58 - thing is one popped up on Chrono24 at a very good price (UK seller below RRP, used a friends address in NI for delivery) so I bought it saying I'd sell the Oris after, not before (photos are crap, sorry!)







Problem being I now don't want to let the Oris go, I really like it but 2 dive watches, let alone 2 blue dive watches seems silly
