The final cut is the deepest....

I have been busy sorting out the collection. I am currently in the midst of the third and final (?) streamlining process. And I have to say that this is getting tougher and tougher. I am trying to cut down the collection (European makers) down to 18 important (to me) pieces. 

This does not include the Casio G-Shock (which is also being streamlined) and other Japanese makers (Seiko and Citizen, wait, I don't have any Citizen). Basically the Japanese makers are pretty much done, I am keeping only 2 Seiko watches, the Orange Monster and the SKX007 diver. 

So far, on the European makers, I have decided to cull the Tudor Snowflake and the Omega Seamaster 300M (homage). On the fence are the Longines Legend Diver, the Tutima Military Chrono (with the Lemania 5100 movement) and the Montblanc Timewalker. It is a painful exercise but one that needs to be done.

At the same time, I will be selling off the military pieces as well. Looks like all will be going off to new homes (or so I pray and hope). 

After this exercise is over, I realised that my collection has changed since I started. I have swapped some pieces for others, and have sold other to finance new pieces. The collection has also taken itself towards a single brand collection (or focus) and I don't know if this is a good thing or not. 

Will there be new pieces or additions to the collection? I don't really know. We will just have to wait and see.
