I’ve been on a bit of a spending spree in the last couple of months. Nothing too expensive mind, but the collection has crept back up to 11, it had been as low as 6. As you can see from the cost spend pie, there are a couple of expensive ones, six mid-priced ones and a several cheapies.
Some statistics from the latest spreadsheet of joy.
- The display split between analogue and digital is now 55% -v- 45% a definite swing back towards the digital world.
- The movement split between mechanical and quartz is 36% -v- 64%, which is less of a shift than anticipated.
- Japanese movements beat the Swiss at 55% -v- 45% respectively.
- Only 1 (9%) has an acrylic crystal – down from 40% in the last survey.
- The average case diameter has risen from 41.72mm to 43.75mm thanks to the massive ProTrek, the Omega and Traser.
- I’d classify them as 35% diver, 20% military inspired and 45% as rough and readies. There is of course plenty of cross over with those definitions.
- The average cost has £736.78 up from £474.98, although this has been skewed by the price of the newly acquired Omega Planet Ocean.
- Excluding the posh watches, the average cost is an insignificant £180.00.
I’ll get me coat.
