I'd love a Shogun or MM300, but I don't know when is mid actually wear one. Any time I'd wear the MM I'll wear the SD4K, likewise the PO over a Shogun. All are great watches, just not necessary.

One reason I tried to get to this place was that it's difficult for me to decide which to wear, so this makes it easier.

I hope.

Exactly why I sold the mm300. Too similar to the SD and I would always reach for the SD.

I can totally see SDC clash with MM300

Exactly why I sold my MM300 as well. Still love that watch, though.

keep the mm300 on isofrane and sd4000 on bracelet.

problem solved... wait - no, no sorry, try to stick with the three watches.

but the mm300 on isofrane is perfect.

This is kinda how I work now. I haven't picked up a big $ watch since I got the PO. Everything since has been sub $500. Keeps some variety, but doesn't break the bank. My problem is that I have more than 3. :oops:

All three are black dial 3-hand dive watches with date and rotating bezel. You need something different :stir:

The "rotating 4th" position sounds plausible, maybe somewhere down the road.

Very nice threesome you have there Ed! Is anybody "really" ever done though? Maybe I'll figure that out one day as I'm real late to the watch party. Having 12 at the moment is helping me decide what I like and don't. Unfortunately, I'm finding accuracy to be a key to me enjoying a watch more, regardless of what it cost. My most expensive watch, which I'll not say what, is the cause of my most frustration as far as being accurate. Love/hate relationship I'll call it and I can now see why people flip watches often. Like I said still figuring things out.

No watch sites. But honestly, even if you delete them, you know they're still there. It starts innocently enough, you'll just take a quick glance to see how people are doing. No interest in their watches though. Then maybe a quick recon check, just to see the value of your keepers. Then it happens. It always does. Short of the internet ending, it's inevitable. Sorry.

Yup you've got all bases covered. Done for sure. Congrats on a super trio. Now won't this be a great thread to revisit in 6 months?

Solid choices.

I like the idea of a rotating 4th slot, and kind of where I am at right now. That way you can still have a bit of fun on the side :dance:

I thought about that as I was posting, knowing I've opened myself to some major virtual tickling if I change it up. I really feel confident that I'm on the right course with these, although the Sinn is potentially in a semi-permanent position. It could be replaced by a similarly fictional rough-duty piece, but I enjoy it now. He other two are exactly what I want.

I woke up thinking of selling the UX.
The other two are keepers.

LOL
Don't, it looks great on your wrist and on a NATO.
Natos work much better with slim watches, so both the UX and the PO are perfect.
Plus, the UX needs a big wrist to work well.

Don't.

Told you already, the only watches you actually need are a Speedy and a DJ - Day Date if you want a dressy one.

I'd upgrade UX to SDR bezel version. Very striking in person when I tried Brice's UX SDR on.
