I'm whittiling my small collection down because I just don't wear some of them enough. Just curious about the satisfaction that comes from a collection like that.

Don't know first hand about the level of satisfaction but most willing to takeover the burden of ownership for an infinite period.

Not sure if anyone commented about this or if it's appropos, but is that collection worth a fairly crazy sum? A few million?

It is a stunning assortment!

Mike, may we why do you collect so many of the same watches?
pure collection purposes, or future value purposes, or both?
are you considering selling most of them later?

what do you think of Sub-C?

After looking at his Subs again, I just feel lucky and very fortunate to get the two that I have.
