I started of this year with the 'good intention' of not spending much more on watches, as I had a small but varied collection with just one Grand Seiko and one Black monster and a few watches from other manufacturers.

I was doing really well until about August, and I don't know what happened but I went a bit Seiko mad!

Here's a brief look at my in's and out's this year (mainly in's to be fair!):

The In's:


6105 8110 (1971):


6306 7001 (1978):

(currently away for service)

7002 7009 (1993):


SRP581 (2014):


All those now give company to my trusty GS (SBGM023):


The Out's:


I had this lovely 6309 7040 (1977) but sadly it had to go to make way for the 6306:


I also had a 2nd gen Black monster that went to be replaced by the SRP581:


And lastly this lovely MCWW modded 6309 7040:


Now over to you guys!
Show me your In's and out's for this year ;)

Only Seiko that came "in" this year was a Seiko SKX009K2 that I'm wearing today.




Two months ago I sold my oldest Seiko to a fellow forum member. This one I had for 45 yrs and bought while in the Air Force in 1969. It sat in a drawer for over 30 years so was still in great shape. A Seiko world time 6117-6010.

I'm re-evaluating my collection at the moment, I'm not sure if this is normal, but when you get into Seiko, you start to wonder about the cost of some other pieces. :eek:hmy:

Nice watch the 009 Rick, great everyday watch. Shame you had to let your old watch go but then again if it's been sitting in a drawer for that long - probably for the best ;)

I wouldn't know where or how to start. My in and then out watches this year include:
- 6117-6400 World Time. Ater fixing the hands, cleaing and new OEM crystal, adding a period correct Seiko-branded Coffin Link for essentially no profit
- Seiko Brand New Perpetual Kinetic that just didn't sing to me
- Nice rose gold case Seiko quartz
- Various vintages (maybe 20??) 6106/6039/7005/7006/7009's, you name it
- Montblanc 7750 Valjoux COSC
- I forget too many

Yes I suppose it's easier for me as I don't flip or buy in large amounts. Some beautiful watches on display here now though, especially estrickland...WOW!

Keep them coming chaps for some lovely eye candy to look at over the hols.

In's - Rolex Sub 114060, Smiths Everest

Out's - Seiko MM300, Omega Seamaster AT

Despite the Sub I am missing the MM300, such a great watch!
