If you had 10k to start a watch collection from scratch, what would you get? My list is:

Used Tudor Black Bay 58 -$3k
Used Panerai Radiomir - $3.5k
Used Grand Seiko - $3k
New Seiko SARB01 - $.5k

Oh man, if I could go back in time I wouldn’t start a collection at all, haha. It does make sense to have one rugged watch and one dressy watch though.

These would be my suggestions, although it would be closer to $13k for the pair.

Nice list, maybe consider a Sinn UTC instead of that Panerai-similar legibility, font & ruggedness without the unwarranted Panerai markup (imho)

BB, GS, Seiko, Panerai. In that order

Rolex datejust and Cartier tank! That’s all I need

If you can find a Black Bay 58 for $3,000, then jump all over it.

How are you all doing? Here's a thought to get some of us chatting again:

In an increasingly hybrid/remote working culture, how do you educate and convince your business stakeholders to not do info overloads with emails? The risk of people not being aware is there but sending separate emails for every sub-program, webinar is annoying (as a receipent) I understand employee perspective.
