Editor’s note: In this Three Watch Collection for $5,000, reader Noel D. gives us a succinct and meaningful trio of watches that cover a range of bases. While the bulk of it goes toward a single watch, the other two fill equally important roles in what they bring to the collection. I love the sentiment in this collection, and the sense of responsibility it brings in the process. We are shepherds of these things, after all.

If you’re going to have more than one watch, my feeling is that a collection should offer range and variety. If it’s possible for three watches to represent something sporty and dressy, vintage and modern, flashy and rugged, then you’re getting the most out of your collection. What I’ve tried to capture here is a wide range of options despite having only three pieces, and knowing that I’ll be wearing the Black Bay 58 about 80% of the time.
