As you climb the watch quality ladder, seeking finer and finer timepieces, you will reach a point, unless you have unlimited wealth, in which you realize you own nothing of value. In fact, you will see that your entire collection is a compromise based on budgetary contstraints.
I am one such collector. I own nothing I truly want. I've squandered close to 20K on watches over the last 8 years. Give me that money now and I'd have two timepieces, the 46mm Seiko Marine Master SBDB001, which is about $3,600 or so, and the 50mm Seiko Marine Master SBDB009, which is about $3,000. Include a beater, like a used $700 Seiko Tuna, and I'll take back that 20 grand I squandered, buy what I really want, and have a good 13K left over.
The watch gods look down at me mired my torment and enjoy a good belly laugh.
