Collection advice ?



As you can see I have reached a stage where I have one empty slot in this box

I do have other box for sub 3k watches

The question is there is an empty slot as you can see which needs to be filled

I have been lurking around many options but still did not decide yet . Also would be open for your comments and suggestions if any needs to leave the collection / consildation or upgrade.


The options which in mind are:

VC blue dial overseas simple date / could clash with my AP blue RO (. Grey)

Patek 5164 travel time / dont have a sport model but i do have many GMTs (grey)

Patek nautilus 5726 on strap as other nautiluses are out of reach in terms of price and this is an annual calendar . (Grey)

Patek world timer steel salmon dial 5835A (retail)

FPJ chronometer platinum and to have my first mechanical FPJ. ( on wishlist)

Bvalgari Octo skeleton ( new version)

MBF LM101 ( Retail )

Lange world timer ( Retail )

Day date oscar rose gold ( retail )


I know all the above can create a box by itself but my heart is leaning towards a sports patek but i would like to hear from you

Thanks

What a great collection! Thanks for sharing.

Personally, from your list I would go for the FPJ, LM101, or DD (I have a soft spot for the DD, YG would be my choice). And being a smaller collection guy, I would consolidate and get all 3. My 2 cents.

What a fantastic collection.

From the list you provided my top three would be the MBF LM101, Vacheron Overseas, Patek World Timer.

My suggestion that isn’t on your list is the 1941 Grönefeld Grönograaf. You seem to like Chronographs and I think that specific model is quite lovely.

Please let us know which one you wind up getting.

You are missing a complicated and/or artisanal watch in your collection.

Aquanaut or Nautilus to fill out the Patek and AP row. 5164 or 5711 (5811) would be my choice. Fabulous collection.

Great collection. Very hard to choose. 5726 strap is a great option to satisfy your desire.

Agree. How about a perpetual calendar watch?

+1 on a Patek perpetual calendar (or the World Timer). Much more interesting than to see "yet another" Nautilus & Aquanaut. Your collection is already quite on the sporty side with a lot of steel bracelets.

Love the Starwheel by the way!

I think the JLC skeleton chrono reverso would make a great addition to that lineup. The Bulgari you mentioned is nice too... But I think I'd go up market with the JLC.

Of the options you presented, however, MB&F
