$2,000; 4 Watches

Recommended Posts

 

If you were starting from scratch and could spend $2k on a 4 watch collection what would you get?

Rules:

1. You can not have two watches from the same manufacturer

2. You must be able to purchase all of them new for no more than $2,000 USD.

3. You must choose a watch that fit into the following categories: Everyday, Diver, Dress, wild card (you choose the 4th category, I am going with a Pilot)

I've spent a lot of time thinking about this and would acquire the following:

1. Everyday/versatile - Certina DS-1 w/ leather strap - $580

This watch is new to my wish list after recently seeing it here in the Affordable Forum. At first I wasnt in love with it, but something about it wouldnt let me forget about it. My appreciation for it grew and I now view it as a must have. The previous watch in this category was a CW Harrison.

2. Diver - CW C60 Trident Black Bezel w/ bracelet - $635

Great list, I love the balance. My only change up might be the Trident with the Orange bezel for little punch of color. Or a Blue or green leather strap on the Pilot. Heck, in that regard you could get 5 or 6 different straps for the aviator and swap them for fun.

Hmmm,not sure about the price of these pieces..but my list will be:

Obris Morgan Branco - everyday (250ish)

Magrette Regattare (maybe brass or bronze for different color) - diver (around 400 for bronze)

Seiko Alpinist/Orient Bambino - dressy (at least I think alpinist is dressy enough) (not sure about alpinist's price/180)

Casio GW A1030/GW 9300/9330 - digital beater (600/300/350)

Several straps for the branco and magrette..
