    Ha - kept everything, just about, picked up these four this year - as far as I remember:

    Feb: Heuer 510.501 -



    Apr: Roamer Anfibio -



    June: Sturmanskie 31659 -



    Oct: Omega ST376.0822 -




    I'm sort of waiting for my latest, which looks as if it's gone astray in the Italian post, but anyway, for 2012....mmmm....

    I've been tempted by Zenith, either Cairelli or DeLuca; On the Lemania side I still hanker after a Sinn 156/12 and think a Fortis 5100 would be a good one, perhaps something avant-garde like a PITA RE-2 or Silberstein Bauhaus if there is a fortuitous congruence of money and fortune anyway. An issued mono-pusher Lemania 2222 has been too long in the wings as well. Anyway, who knows? Not me and hopefully not my wife.

    There're about a dozen in the 'chronographs' thread that I'd happily pour over as well and I've yet to find my ZRC Etanche Grands Fonds Serie Deux!

    I only reeled in 3 this year. In chronological ( what else!) order, they are:

    IWC AT2000Ti


    Sinn EZM3


    and just the other day, a Damasko


    Outgoing was my Breitling Steelfish, and that's about it.

    In 2011 I flirted with ideas of adding a 5100-powered watch, but found it hard to pull the trigger. I've also been mulling a vintage Seiko chronograph of one kind or another. Maybe one or the other will get done this year? I want to add another Sinn, but need to decide on U1, U2, or 857. Right now I am leaning towards the U1. A Seiko OM and SARB/Cocktail Time are likely targets this year, too.

    I thought I did’t have much, but I recently looked through my collection and saw that I’ve been through a few during 2011.

    My incoming have been:

    Citizen Nighthawk



    Damasko DA-37



    Citizen ‘Ray Mears’ Promaster Tough



    Bremont MB2



    Seiko SBCM023 HEQ diver



    Hamilton 6BB watch



    Benarus Moray



    Sinn 757 UTC



    My outgoing have been:

    Omega Omega Geneve cal.1030 manual
    Citizen Nighthawk
    Citizen ‘Ray Mears’ Promaster Tough
    Seiko SBCM023 HEQ diver
    Benarus Moray
    Damasko DA-37 (Which I will replace)

    And I’m left with:

    Bremont MB2
    Bremont Alt1-P
    Bremont Alt1-C
    Sinn 757-UTC
    Seiko Gen 1
    Hamilton 6BB
    Arnex dive chrono (incoming)

    I will add at least another this year for my 40th in the summer, but funds will dictate what……

    Default Sotc 2012

    As of 1-1-2012



    Out:
    PRS-50
    MKII Mod 50b
    Omega Speedmaster '67 cal.321

    In:
    Seiko 6309 Mod

    I am pretty sure that I will be keeping all this year (save world nuclear/financial meltdown) and I'm not really beating the doors down for anything else. However, I'm always interested in a Movado Super Sea Sub and a BP FF.

    My biggest "In" this year is my new camera purchase: Canon 7D with a 24-70mm and 70-200mm f2.8 L lenses - my watch budget is depleted for a while.

    Happy New Year and have an outstanding 2012!

    I hope I am not the worst, but 2011 was the year I attained several must-haves. Not too many pieces left on the list!

    In the order of acquisition:
    Tissot Navigator with 1343
    Breitling ChronoMatic 2114
    Lorenz diver
    Breitling TransOcean 7102b (blue dial/blue chapter ring)
    Breitling TransOcean 2119
    Tutima 759-02 Pacific
    Sinn EZM4
    Tissot Navigator (brown with Lemania 5012)
    Sinn EZM1
    Nivada (with TDBK Cal. 1369)
    Breitling TransOcean 7102a (white dial/brown chapter ring)
    Heuer Carrera 150.573F

    Pieces that left:
    Omega "TV" 176.0014
    Seiko 6139-7039
    Felca (square case with Lemania 1340)
    Tissot Navigator with 1343 (photos do not show just how big it really is!)
    Breitling TransOcean 7102b (to get the brown version)

    Piece that left and returned after a trade-back deal:
    Tissot PR516 (red bezel three-register)

    In 2012, I hope to finally find the Zenith of my dreams, an El Primero. Not necessarily the the A386, either. I really like the A3817 and A3818, maybe an A385. I am already tracking a nice Movado Datron. Not the same thing but a nice variation.

    I would like to get a Cal.11 Heuer Carrera 1153 with 3-6-9-12 hour subdial, and I would love a companion Cal. 12 Heuer Carrera 110.573F for my Cal. 15 version.

    I am still looking for the right Heuer Monza. And a fume (brown) dial Daytona.

    And, of course, more Lemania-branded dials. I am torn about finding a Heuer Audi Sport or getting the Lemania-branded version.

    I also need to sell off some watches. I have made deliberate attempts to move more upscale in collecting, and most of the 'cheap' pieces are gone. It is now getting more difficult to part with many of the ones I now have, such is the tragedy of moving up!
