Editor’s Note: In this edition of The 3 Watch Collection for $5,000, reader Justin Richardson has selected a trio of watches that represent not only the three most prominent watchmaking nations, but have him covered for just about any situation he might encounter. This collection has variety, heritage, and plenty of style. If you’d like to submit your own 3 watch collection for $5,000, fill out the form located here and our editors will review.
This three watch collection covers the air, sea and conference room. It features selections from each of three countries with, in my opinion, the richest watchmaking traditions. Longines and Junghans are both brands that tend to be overshadowed by their more well known countrymen (Omega and Rolex; A. Lange and Sohne) but continue to provide quality pieces that should be considered by any watch collector. Seiko is the brand all affordable watch enthusiasts know and love. The reference chosen here embodies Seiko’s design and engineering precision. These watches may not be a perfect collection, but it’s close.
