    Here's an overview of my relatively stable collection, these timepieces don't undergo the buyer's remorse / flipping saga.
    Mostly Tag Heuer, and Carreras in particular.

    Not shown are a couple of Vostok Komandirskie which I don't wear, only for fun, random Casios, and many, many Swatch :)

    Very nice collection! What is the 3-hand omega in the top row? How do you get on with the 2000 multigraph?

    @dtf - the Omega is a Railmaster

    As @imagwai mentioned, it is indeed a Railmaster.
    This is the 39mm version, a NOS I found on chrono24 in Italy.
    I once foolishly bought the XXL version, a whopping 49.2mm which eventually I never wore and flipped for a Carrera.

    The multigraph, well, is a fun challenge. You have to spin the crown x number of times to get to a function. Tricky, and painful :)

    I was looking for the perfect Speedmaster.
    One of the local dealers had one sitting and gave me a great deal on it.

    It's a nice, polyvalent watch with a respectable pedigree.
    I personally consider it next to the Carrera and the Zenith el Primero among the nicest chronographs available.

    To be truthful, I once considered the Portugesier.
    But to compare it to a Speedmaster is a bit unfair considering the price gap.

    But, I would go for an el Primero against it.

    elprimero is truly something eh ? price is good. the design looks super cool with "open heart"

    sometimes i think its better than grand carrera calibre 36 considering the price more and less

    I have 3 Sistem51, one of them the recent sistem arrows, Irony.
    Many NOS vintage ones, many Chronos, and among them the old Irony skeleton automatic.

    Other than my two TAG's which have been great watches, I've got an Omega Bond SMP and a Timex Expedition Scout. I actually like the Timex - it's a great watch for the price and has held up very well on my fishing trips.

    My dad gave me his Omega SMP as a "gift" back in July. It was running about a minute fast per day, so I bit the bullet and had a full service done on the watch and received it back a couple of months ago. It's running well now, averaging just over +2 spd. Here's a shot of the Omega:

    Original favorite - Seiko A829. "Astronaut". Now semi-retired but still working 100%. Thought about refurbishing but I like the wear and tear. It's been with me for 30+ years.
