How many luxury watches (>RM8,000) do you have?

Hey everyone,

When I bought my Zenith Striking 10th in 2013, I thought to myself - how need more than 1x nice watch. Then again, I soon saw an used JLC Perpetual Calendar in good condition and irresistible price and shortly after, the "everyone needs a Speedy" motto kicks in. Then the rest is history.

Let's have a fun poll. The purposes are: (i) to help rationalizing and convince yourself you should buy the next watch; (ii) show to your wife / girl friend that it is perfectly normal to have xxx number of watches; and (iii) mainly, for fun.

As someone late to the party, I only have 1 luxury watch so far. Have to slowly save up for the next big one.

Just to add, I can't view the poll from Tapatalk. Can only access from the website.

Never too late and your time will come, if you continue to hang out here.  ;D

Do the ones we have to buy for the other half so we can buy one for ourself count as well ??

Or just the ones we can wear and not the ladies only model?

Or just what we can call our own watch?

Good question. I also included the watches that I bought for my wife that I can also wear.

Well, I bought my first Rolex in 2012. A 116300 Datejust II white stick dial w/ smooth bezel. At the time I thought I was only ever going to just own one Rolex, how naive I was.

Having purchased the first, I grew more and more interested in Rolex, and found that the vintage Daytona 6263 extremely appealing - classic and timeless look. But it was going for around US$35-40K, that was too much for me. Then in 2016 the 116500LN came out, it so strikingly resembled the 6263 and instantly became my grail. I eventually went grey and got it. And I told myself two watches was enough.

After paying off my mortgage for my investment properties, I began to have some extra funds. And so I decided to get a Submariner to "celebrate" acquiring my Open Water diver license. I told myself 3 watches was enough.

Like others said, it's a rabbit hole that never gets too deep. The idea of "Land Sea Air" came in, then I wanted to add "colors", yada yada yada, all these reasons I made in my mind to get more watches.

I am now at 6 watches, all of them SS Rolexes and I do not plan to get any more in a long time.

"Land, Sea, Air" I remember that mantra.  :D :D
Speaking of which, I may need to beef up my "Land" watch.  :)
