    Default My Dirty Dozen collection

    Today I've finally completed my Dirty Dozen collection with the addition of the Omega & the Longines courtesy of John Senior. I've had the IWC for about 10 years. The other 11 have taken me a year to collect. My favourite is the Longines, followed by the IWC.

    What a moment! Congratulations. 10 years is decent enough, but to have collected 11/12 in a year is great going.

    I'll be lucky to ever own just one of these classics so I can only sit back and admire.

    Congratulations, well done!
    It took me about 10 years to get 10/12 before deciding to switch directions in my collection. Your focus and patience paid off!!

    The only P5 that springs to mind is this one: It would be relevant, but I don't know if you'd know it would be relevant???
