Well THAT escalated quickly!!!!!

Recommended Posts

TheGingerFerret

And when I say 'that' escalated quickly, I am referring to my new found addiction to rep watches.

I posted a thread on RWI when I got my first Rep which was I think in Oct '17' there or thereabouts. I then went on a mental shopping spree so decided I'd better buy a watch box to house the incoming watches. I posted a thread about the watch box on RWI too. At the time it was all but empty and looking rather sorry for itself. 

However thanks to two new arrivals today (out of the blue - I love it when that happens) and one a few days ago, my watch box is looking distinctly healthier (my bank account not so much)....

As of today, this is my collection. From back row, left to right: 

 

IWC Pilot Chrono Le Petit Prince by ZF

IWC Portuguese Chrono by ZF

Uno by Botta Design (Gen - but broken)

 

Middle row, left to right:

 

Omega CrPO 45mm by JH factory

IWC Big Pilot by ZF

AP ROO Novelty 44mm Titanium by JF Factory 

Pam 111 v4 by Noob

Richard Mille RM055 Limited Edition by KVF (?)

 

Front row, left to right: 

 

Submariner v7 by Noob 

Sea-dweller by ARF

Black Daytona by ARF

White Daytona by ARF

 

And the last space on the front row saved for the DSSD Blue by ARF hopefully in the near future!

Thanks dude. They all look a bit dark, boring and samey in the photo, but they're very different on the wrist.

The box is a Wolf box. I got it in a sale for £100 (or thereabouts from memory). Not cheap, but it is well made. https://www.wolf1834.co.uk/item/458506/15-piece-watch-boxes/

Wolf boxes are great - I have the travel case, set me back £77 but so good and has divisors to separate watches that the cheap ones don't!

good collection, think I may post mine later :-)

It did escalate QUICK!
I started right around the same time as you did. I thought I was crazy to write drown 12 watches that I will order.

Got 6 of them in my rep watch box. 4 are on their way. 2 still are undecided.

You sure are way ahead of me!

It's only because I had cash to burn - I was due to buy myself a Gen as a b'day present. I'vealways liked watches without ever  being obsessed or getting around to buying a nice one. I was looking around at what to get, thinking to get a steel Rolex or something in that price range when I came across Richard Mille watches (but without realising the prices) and thought I'd get one of them. That's when I realised I'd need about £80k for a nice secondhand one! Which was out of my league. So I thought, whilst I'm looking for a gen watch, why not see if a fake RM was out there. That search led to this place,  which led to RWI and ultimately to addiction.

So the way I see it, I've bought all these lovely watches and saved myself a fortune over Gen - win win!

I'm still a noob! I think the desire for vintage will come with time. I do like the vintage Pepsi GMT already though....
