5 Watches A Collection should Have!!

Posted on

Watch collectors always been a funny breed depending on what level you at there is some pieces that every collector should have or at least tried and tested at some point.  These are the top 5 watches I feel you should have brands are as follows. Rolex, Omega, Tag Heuer, is a good start.  Rolex is king for Collectors thou the most dominant brand for the three.

First: I feel Rolex Daytona always been a piece every collector loves its a great all round piece to be worn on all occasions and always well recognized on the wrist. Vintage Daytona’s are thee one to have but prices are very very high especially the Paul Newman Daytona which started the whole Daytona phenomenon which is going for strength to strength. This one is the next best thing the Rolex 116520 which was discontinued in 2016.

Second: Rolex Submariner a true dive collectors piece, a collection should not be without a Rolex Submariner bond watch! James Bond wore these in early films, Submariner dates to the 50,s which is one of the long standing pieces still going strong today, divers watch, dress watch everyday watch all rounder rolled into one. The Submariner is one of Rolex’s best selling watch, Daytona is most desirable but not their best seller.

Third: The Omega Seamaster Professional aka “Bond Watch” This watch was a classic in the early bond films and great watch as well as a divers watch too watch resistant to 300 Metres always been rivals with Rolex divers.

Forth: The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is the piece with a great talking point “The First Watch Worn On the Moon” on the first ever moon landing the astronauts all wore similar pieces to the picture below mine is the same but updated version. Omega took the rights to this and spun it out to 100’s of limited edition pieces since then.  But great watch only thing is its manual wind so which can be a pain every two days winding the watch.

Fifth: Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph always a great all round watch also a great starter piece, Tag Heuer’s have some great starter watches and reasonable prices. This the latest version is nice everyday wearer.
There is plenty of watches I think could pass to go in the collection, these are 5 I would recommend for now!
