Last spring, I had 55 watches, a state that didn't sit well. Made me anxious. Now about 9 months later, I'm down to 30.

To answer the question, I'd keep the Invicta that reminds me of my favorite watch, the $8,000 Panerai Luminor and that would be my Invicta Force Master 4830.

Let's see, not including retired and/or damaged watches or watches that are in my "to sell" box, I'm currently at 20:
As three of the five watches in my "to sell" box are Invictas, technically I still have a few more Invictas than Seikos, but you can see that the "balance of power" has shifted. I have one Seiko on the way (Velatura SNAA91) and am looking at a couple other Seikos and a Festina, so Invictas are finally dropping below my Seiko count and will be so "officially" within a month or so.
Anyhow, my answer to the question is one of two: Invicta Capsule 6661 or the Subaqua Specialty Reserve 0524. I'd rather pick two but if I had to pick one it would probably be the 0524. As I've said before, if Invicta made more mid-size Subaqua Specialty Reserves, I'd be buying them. As it is there are a couple I'd like to eventually get but don't have.
But I don't have to pick, so I'm probably keeping the following: Capsule 6661, SAS 0524, SAS F0010, SAS 0507, Ocean Reef 6138, Ocean Speedway 0762, and then two that I don't wear but were my first two Invictas and thus hold a special place in my heart: the "Rolex killer" Speedway 9223 and the purple dial Sea Spider 0556. Finally, there's the Leviathan which I sold the band for because I thought I was going to wear it with the Sea Spider band, but I never wear it. I'm not sure if I'll sell just the case for probably no more than $75, or keep it as a beautiful piece of machinery.
Invictas in my to-sell box: SAS 6903, Ocean Reef 6144, Pro Diver 1107, along with a Pulsar and an old Nautica.
