Here is my current collection. I was fortunate this year and picked up two of my grails: Speedmaster 376.0822 and just before the end of the year a near perfect example of a Gallet Excel-O-Graph by Racine. In addition, I added several nice Omegas, a couple of Hamilton Autos and I even won a LeJour Chronograph from ATG Vintage Watches.
This year I will be looking for a nice Navitimer 806, a 1962 Rolex 5513, a Breitling Co-Pilot, a Zenith De Luca, a Movado Super Sub and a Speedy CK2998.
In addition, I will hopefully be adding some interesting dive watches: Omega SM300 & 120, BP FF (Homage ?), etc.
This is an expensive list, but if I can get 1 or 2 it will be a very good year.
