In this edition of The Three Watch Collection for $5,000, reader John S. shows us a well rounded, and well reasoned collection that covers the broadest possible range of wear scenarios for the money. Bonus points for finding cool options relatively under the radar.
If you’d like to submit your own 3 watch collection for $5,000 can you do so at the form right here.
My approach to the three-watch collection is fairly simple. That is, allocate funds to what gets worn the most. For example, if two of the three get the majority of wrist time, then let’s say roughly 85% of the $5,000 should go to those watches and only 15% to the last one. This way, not only are you putting money where it matters but you’re also giving yourself a better daily driving experience. Yeah, in theory having a Ferrari would be nice; but if you bought one then only left yourself enough money for an old Ford Pinto to put the family in you might not be in the best situation day-to-day. Not to knock any potential Pinto drivers out there reading this.
