I guess three Seikos with "tuna can" cases might be enough. Maybe you should pick up a watch with a Panerai style cushion case, to add some variety.

Maybe you should look into other color variants. For instance, the blue daily Sawtooth is striking or the black Tuna.

The Grand Touring would be rather unique in your collection and might be a good next target for you.

My next watch might be the Grand Touring, which has a Panerai shape case. I wonder how cheap it will go. Then it's a used OSD.

While I think you should go for the Grand Touring, my worry is that you'll love it for a month or two and then grow tired of it. The OSD is a sure-thing long-term love. That said, the Grand Touring probably seems more appealing because its "new" to your shared obsession.

Speaking of obsession, I was going to write a blog post looking back a year, so was reading through posts of late 2012 and early 2013. Man, how things have changed. A year ago I had just discovered the Orient Revolver and became hugely obsessed. It was really in January to March that my tastes matured.

Well, I'd like the OSD and the Grand Touring. Also, the Boschett Harpoon is coming out around March. I might get that one first. The Grand Touring might go down $100 or so after a year.

I can see you owning, and loving, all three.

Jeff Besh the chef was on Top Chef this evening. He was wearing what appeared to be a 44mm luxury diver. It may have been a Rolex, a microbrand, or whatever. But I'm almost sure it costs thousands. Those pricy divers look so damn good. Just don't tell me it was a thirty dollar Timex.

I think the next best thing, Jeff, is something like the Sumo or OSD. It may not seem so because its on your wrist, but they look just as nice.

I've long thought of buying a submariner homage - there certainly are a lot to choose from, and much nicer than the crappy Invicta versions. Steinhart is probably the way I'd go.
