I am a simple man

I am a simple man, with simple taste. I would consider my watches boring at most, as most of them have a black dial. While I have white dial watches, these are in my rotation the most.

The 116610LN. Simple watch that goes with everything in my very small wardrobe.


The 116710LN, while very similar to my sub date has just that touch of bling and has a very useful GMT function for when I have to be away from home due to work.


The ever classic Speedy pro which is light and sporty and a great casual watch.


The splash of colour that I need comes from this cheeky piece. The evergreen and lovely Milgauss GV.


The PAM 1312 was an impulse buy which I have not regretted. Itís size is just borderline for me. But itís not as chunky once itís on the wrist. I love the slimmer case, lugs and the blued second hands.


And lastly...everyone needs a Seiko. What better Seiko to represent its diver series than the mighty MarineMaster 300? Itís heavier than the PAM due to the thick case and steel bracelet. But itís a Seiko classic.


So there you have it gents. The six simple watches that I wear the most. Some might say they are boring, and I do think so too, but I wouldnít have it any other way...

Very nice and they look great on your wrist. I think now all you need is an LVc green Sub for that crazy splash of colour on those days you're feeling a little wild

Very classic taste. I like how the Milgauss added some variety to your nice collection.

Nice collection. I really love that Milgauss.
If this was my collection I'd probably flip the sub or the GMT, as they are so similar. I would maybe add a nice Datejust.

You and I have similar tastes. I like classic pieces. Nothing boring about it when you appreciate clean and proven design elements.

I love that the Sub and the GMT looks so similar but are different. But the datejust has always been on my radar. Looking for a good condition birth year DJ right now.

I like your collection. A few potentials for your collection that I own myself:

You might like the Patek 5522. I like it. I like simple. But I also like complicated : )

I like Snowflake. Simple but elegant. Titanium, spring drive, that dial....
