    I'm new to this community so trying to get my foot in the door to see if people have similar interests? If you have post them in here :thumb:

    My two watches are,
    A Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece in 18k yellow gold 1 of 350 which was given to me by an uncle.

    I'm certainly not a collector but I do appreciate good quality time pieces, my wife bought me a Breitling chronomat pilot for my 40th which stunned me at the time, i hardly ever wear it though due to being terrified of knocking / damaging it so it spends most of it's life safely tucked away in it's box :eek:. pointless really.

    I've got the following

    2004 Rolex gold / stainless submariner blue face / bezel
    2007 Omega Seamaster Professional
    2001 Omega Speedmaster Professional Michael Schumacher edition
    1992 Gucci Chrono

    I'll get some pictures tomorrow, too lazy to do it now.

    This should be a popular thread , loads of the guys on here have nice watches / nice collections.

    Nice collection! I hope it is going to be popular its nice to see peoples collections. The seamster is one of my favourite watches, the only reason i got the avenger instead is because it was the first watch I've bought (I'm 21 so plenty of time for lots more lol) and i wanted something a bit less common although the seamster is next on the list!

    Have you seen the Emirates Team Omega diver? If I wasn't looking for an AMG and still had my 135i I'd find a way to have it lol

    Brietling Aerospace Titanium for me.

    Mrs Red has a Cartier Tank Solo.

    I would like an Aerospace in 18K with an 18K professional bracelet if anyone comes across one, they are few and far between. Model K75362 specifically.

    Such a classic watch ! :cool:

    Brown strap works well , you usually see them on a black one.

    That PP is gorgeous. :)

    I have an embarrassingly large collection of watches, mainly Rolex or Omega, which I try to wear in rotation but usually end up with a 21 year old 14060 Sub on as it's just practical and comfy for a daily. Also got some unusual stuff including most of the "Men in Black" series of Hamiltons and also some strange Russian stuff, including a 24 hour dial Raketa which is "interesting" if nothing else.

    I mainly collect/repair 70's LED watches and have a Pulsar P2 'Roger Moore' which is my favourite.
    I've also got a small collection of 80's LCD watches. I'm wearing my 1981 Dukes of Hazard watch at the moment.

    Bought a Seamaster aqua terra Skyfall and I've got an older Seamaster 50th anniversary 007.
