Here's mine. Some decent, some cheap and some collectibles. Most are accurate twice a day.

Have a bunch of other cheaper ones too but these are the only 3 that really see the light of day. Love them all. Rolex gets the most wear. The AP scratches easily so you wouldn't want to be wearing it doing any work on cars or anything like that!

I am probably going to sell a few off. I have really only worn the Tudor and Sinn the last couple months, so the seikos may be on the chopping block.

L-R, in order of least to most personal importance:

1. Battery-operated Skagen Titanium. Sometimes you just need a "grab-and go" watch.

2. Seiko Prospex Samurai (Automatic) on a NATO strap. I've had it down to 220' on a Japanese WWII wreck so far, as I actually use it as my dive watch.

3. Sinn 856 UTC (Automatic). My "work" watch-- I keep the inner time zone on GMT/UTC/Zulu time-- that comes in handy pushing a jet around. (All military and commercial aircraft base everything on GMT to avoid any confusion with time zones.)

4. Rolex Submariner on a woven Everest strap (Automatic). My wife got this for me as a combination "50th Birthday/10th Wedding Anniversary/Captain's Upgrade" present.

5. Glycine Airman (Automatic). My father bought and wore this while flying Caribou's in Viet-Nam and then continued to wear it for the rest of his aviation career, until he gifted it to me when I graduated Pilot Training. I wore it during every conflict I flew in for over 25 years (Gulf War I, Gulf War II, OIF, OEF, etc.)

Are you just holding those to flip them? Why have so many versions of essentially the same watch?

I love my 114060. My best watch purchase by far.

With Standard Time upon us, do you adjust all your watches or as required?

I want to see the light work on these pieces.

No, all at once if necessary, the Tutima need the most attention if not worn, the clockworker had set it to gaining time if layed down and not stored into an auto winder, it gains up to 25secs a day. The Boccia and the H3 are really sharp clocks and only need to be adjusted lets say every 3 weeks and then they gained plus 5 to 10 secs or around this, not to mention.
Well, just 3 are no real collection, but the Tutima is my former Air Force pilots watch and meanwhile 34 years into my property and had flewn lots of miles within that time, all time favorite so to speak. Onto my actual exercise Im wearing the H3 mostly because of the Tritium segments and visibility at night. The Boccia is very suitable at travelling into or between timezones because of the analog and digital displays. But I admit that because of my decreasing ability to see things sharp at close distance without glasses, the size of digits at the displays are too small
