So I started 2018 with a resolution to stop adding any more watches to my collection for a while.
It started in 2008 with a Breitling SA and on Breitlingsource.com and 10 years later, I think it is time to take a pause and allow my tastes to mature a bit and.

Watches in Order of being acquired -

1. Breitling - Super Avenger
2. Panerai - Luminor Marina - PAM 422
3. Eterna - Kontiki Diver - 1000m
4. Omega - Railmaster XXL
5. Jaeger LeCoultre - Master Compressor Extreme World Chronograph
6. Zenith - Montres D’Aeronef featuring 5011K movement 55 mm (Zegg Cerlati Limited Edition)
7. IWC - Portugieser Yacht Club RG
8. Rolex - Deep Sea Sea Dweller (Deep Blue Special Edition)
9. IWC - Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Kurt Klaus Limited Edition
10. Nord Zeitmaschine - Quick Indicator
11. Omega - Seamaster Ploprof
12. Hublot - Spirit of Big Bang Chronograph Titanium (featuring Zenith El Primero movement)

You are one of the very few whose collection really impresses me. Very well diversified collection with different styles. A not so usual but yet classic collection. There is nothing wrong with yr taste so please don't stop adding more:p

Thanks! It all started with the Super Avenger - so the initial drift was set!

Frankly many of the watches don’t get enough wrist time as is, so will look to start pruning some time this year before adding any more!

That's a really nice collection Mercury2wo. :thumbsup:

As Chronomat01LE said, you've covered a lot of bases there, plus you've got that rarest of thing - a Hublot that I actually like! :wink: I've always loved that JLC - I nearly bought one myself a few years ago - but the one I'm really impressed at you having is the Nord Zeitmaschine. They're a really unusual choice (especially for the money) and as a result you just never see them anywhere. I think they're very cool pieces. I love 'em!

I agree. It’s hard to love all Hublot pieces. But this one did speak to me.
It is very well made. El Primero movement to boot.

The Nord. Yup, really cool and inventive pieces. This one IS very cool. But readability is an issue. After wearing for a few days continuously you get the hang of it easily, but low light, situations - you have to grab your phone to check the time.
