Honestly, I'm only crazy about a third of them. The rest were "learning experiences."

My top five:

1. Fortis B-42 Chronograph Alarm.

2. Rolex GMT-Master II.

3. Panerai Luminor GMT.

4. Panerai 91.

5. Omega X-33.

The most "fun" watch: Tissot T Navigator 3000. Besides offering a serviceable
stopwatch, timer and alarm, the choice of time display for about 100 places around the world is fun to play with. Also, the watch automatically adjusts to the switchover from standard time to daylight savings time and vice versa. The digital display is also the only one I know with a red light and adjustable brightness.

I never wore the IWC and selling it got me the Memomatic, which is a favorite.

Maybe funny, but the money train has left the station.

Haven't acquired any watches yet this year.

Nor is it likely, unless I flip some.

And I hate to do that.

I mean, hey, I liked 'em enough to get 'em in the first place, right?
