Drop one of the Royal Oaks and the Aquanaut, then pick up a Lange 1. Perfect collection right there!

After much deliberation, the ROC went this week.
However, I’ve already got my eye on another piece!! Maybe i do need to get a bigger watch box....

I think you made the right choice but I'm curious as to what you've got your eye on. Certainly most watch boxes are cheaper than these types of watches.

Sell the Aquanaut too, and add another PM piece.

ROc

Love the line, but not a big fan of that particular generation and color scheme

One of the AP's, take your pic. I'd flip the ROC.

Yes the ROC has now gone last week.
Iím thinking of getting an additional more durable watch, maybe something green for a change!

I personally think that getting rid of the Aquanaut and getting a proper diver like the LV would make for a better and more varied collection.

Interesting that the aquanaut has been suggested a fair bit. I guess itís close to the nautilus and not perceived at the same level. It was my first PP and has some sentimental value.

Anyway, incoming tomorrow!!

You donít need to reduce your collection by 1 watch, you need to get a bigger watch box.


But honestly you have a great collection and I would say goodbye to the ROC if one had to go.

I'd get rid of the Aquanaut. First, you have the Nautilus already. Second, prices fort he Aquanaut have shot up and (I believe) is priced too high for that you're getting. In other words, take the money and run.

Nice move in my opinion. Love the LVC and your collecting was begging for a diver.

Was going to say trade for the green Aqua, but this is much nicer financially and sunburst is much sweeter.

,

in my opinion one of the AP's if you want to reduce even more the Aquanat can go as well. I would keep the Vacheron, Daytona, Nautilius and 1 AP
