  1. I love the Doxa Sub 300T and as a diver it is the best. I actually sold my Rolex Submariner and bought my Sub 300T I find it to be one of the most superior and underrated Dive watches on the market. I am Check the Boxes kinda guy and have a fairly large collection including many of the watches you have mentioned in your videos from Seiko to Cartier. I have vintage and modern watches from Hamilton Longines and Bulova; I even have the Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer. I have several vintage Ball Pocket watches as well, like you I have a deep connection to Ball as my Grandfather and Great Grandfather were both Rail Road Engineers. Even have a couple modern Ball Wrist watches. All and all I am nearing 100 watches in total and I am no where near stopping. I literally have a watch for everything and every occasion

  2. One brand, I have noticed, that rarely gets a mention in these "collection" watches is Christopher Ward. I could see a few of their models fitting into some of these categories easily. Also, I have never seen Teddy handle one in the flesh. He mentioned the C60 a few years ago but it was just a screenshot, nothing on the wrist or in hand. Just something that I think a few of us would enjoy.

  3. Could you please explain why the numeral 'IIII' is used instead the 'IV' in the watch's dial? Thanks

  4. Datejust 1601, Seiko SKX, and vintage Seamaster. You can find great examples of each for well under $6k all together.

  5. one watch collection is not what watch enthusiast does, for 6k try used preowned and it will be like 8-10k budget because you shave off the marked up prices and you stretch your bucks, out of all my 12 watch collection 75% are bought used in excellent condition and the rest bought new.

  6. Thank you for showing me the orient watches! Ordering a kamasu and a SK diver retro right after I get my bulova.

  7. Teddy, I was wondering what watch you were wearing in this video? I was trying to guess, but couldn't. 🙂

  8. I bought the AquaTerra after i watched your review of it. But the white dial with the orange seconds hand.
