As a relative newbie to watch collecting I have quickly realized that the hunt for the grail piece can sometimes be more exciting than the actual acquisition. The toughest part is finding the right grail to chase. In my one year of watch collecting I have added the following –
- Ball Engineer Master II World Timer (Black)
- Anonimo Opera Meccana D-Date (Orange)
- Magrette Bronze Regattare (Which might be exchanged shortly due to a case issue)
Somedays I am very interested in adding a few micro brands to the collection but other days I want to just bide my time and wait until the perfect piece comes available. In this process I continue to add a few names to my list to keep track of including the Ball Skylab, Graham Chronofighter and a few others. Being a sucker for multi time zone watches I also will now add the following to that list of closely watched –
I love the classic Rolex look on this watch but the inner dial for a 2nd time zone is killer to me. At 42mm this would be a perfect piece and a unique item as well. Thoughts?
