Hi Guys, This Is A Question That I Wanted To Make Due To My Own Situation.

Is Your More Expensive Watch Your Favorite In Your Collection?

i own a beautiful rolex daytona 2 tone, it is the most expensive of all my watches. but.

i really dont enjoy wearing it as i do with my tag heuer aquaracer, my tissot or my invictas.

i found it to be out of my age, i'm just 23 and i found it a little oldy for me, thats why i prefer wearing my bigger diver watches.

I don't get it.

How can any chronograph be "oldy?"

I have no favorite watch.

They all fulfill a purpose and are appropriate for one occasion or another.

I wear my 8926 the most, but that's because it is an automatic.

No, my reserve Speedway isn't my favorite. My new Tissot is my newest and will be my favorite for at least the next week! But really, I don't have a favorite, I wear and enjoy them all.

My favorite watch is a Donald Duck Bradley Time quartz worth about $60 new. I have watches that cost many thousands that I don't like quite as much. But it's a sentimental choice.
My taste in watches has little to do with price. However, up to a point higher price does indicate superior craftsmanship... as long as you're an educated and careful shopper, one who studies horology

Wilfreb I wear and enjoy all my watches but there is a so called pecking order.It use to be my Tag Aquagraph followed by the Aquaracer and so on.Now they have moved over for the Invicta Sabaqua Noma 111.It is now the most worn watch in the collection.It also was a lot less expensive then the Tags.

Right now my most expensive watches consist of the lower end models of the more expensive brands. I prefer my less expensive Invictas to these watches. :cool1::thumbup1:

I'm always adding to my collection so whenever I get a new watch, it becomes my favorite for a while.
But I agree that price doesn't automatically determine the favorites.

It's my most expensive and my favorite and will be my favorite when it is no longer my most expensive watch. I like them all, or I wouldn't have bought them, but if all but one had to go, the Rolex is the one I would keep, period. We've been through a hell of a lot together and every time I put it on some old memory pops up, usually a good one.:thumbup:

Interesting question. Right now my fave is the Reserve SAN and it is my most expensive watch but it's also my newest. The fact that it's twice the cost of any other watch I own I'm sure will influence whether it's my favorite or not down the road. I'm not going to be willing or able to buy anything as expensive for a long time, so I'm hoping it will maintain favorite status.

You're quite the Mickey fan Larry! Are you a collector of Disney or have you just picked them up because you like them?

I have to answer a resounding NO to this one. Although I love my Breitling I find I enjoy my less expensive watches more. I cant name one but I have noticed that my price point has moved up a little and my once beloved Alphas now sit in the box while I wear my newer $150 to $300 acquisitions. They are all good at one time or another.

Can honestly say I dont have a favorite watch I enjoy all of them, some get worn more than others, but has nothing to do with favorite.

Hmm

Actually, one of my least expensive ($15.50 ebay) is "one of my favorites"
It's for me a summertime watch, xtra light weight on a nylon strap. Really, I love whatever I'm wearing and don't have a #1 watch....although I like drinking Vodka with my CLERC on.

While I like almost every watch I own (I'm wearing an Invicta 8926 today), I do still get that special satisfaction when I wear my Daytona TT that I get from no other watch in my collection.

So, I'd say yes.
