Building a Five Thousand Dollar Watch Collection: The Search for Sponsorship
Are you a watch enthusiast looking to build your very own luxury watch collection? You may want to follow in the footsteps of Brighton Billion, who recently set out to build a five thousand dollar watch collection. But what if you could get your dream collection for free? Brighton Billion proposes the idea of finding a sponsor for his series, who will in turn give away one of the collections to a lucky viewer. Interested in sponsoring?

The Watch Collection Rules
To participate in the giveaway, you must have at least five watches in your collection, with a minimum budget of five thousand dollars. Brighton Billion sets the maximum budget at around five thousand two hundred and fifty dollars, allowing for a five percent variance above or below the four thousand nine hundred seventy-five dollar range. The watches must be wearable and can’t be pre-owned. Additionally, the collection must include three new watches. Seems simple enough, right?
The Search for Affordable Luxury
Brighton Billion takes on the challenge of finding affordable luxury watches that fit the criteria of the giveaway. The first watch he looks at is a Tudor 1926 watch. Tudor is a brand started by Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, to create more affordable watches than Rolex. The Tudor 1926 reference number m91650 is priced at fourteen hundred dollars and comes in several sizes. Brighton Billion opts for the 41mm size, which he likes for its larger size on the wrist. The watch has a self-winding automatic movement with a date function, making it perfect for formal occasions and everyday wear.
The Dive Watch Dilemma
Brighton Billion then moves on to finding a sporty dive watch, with a budget of around a thousand dollars. After considering the Seiko PADI Special Edition Cocktail Time, he decides to go for the Mido Ocean Star Tribute, an affordable Swiss watch manufacturer. The watch has a rose gold PVD coating on the bezel and has a proper Swiss movement with an 80 hour power reserve. With a retail price of 990 Swiss francs, the Mido Ocean Star Tribute is priced at just over a thousand dollars.
The Solution to Staying on Budget
After spending two thousand four hundred and twenty-six dollars on just two watches, Brighton Billion needs to find a solution to stay on budget. He decides to go for the Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 565, which has a blue dial and comes in at a price of 678 US dollars. Brighton Billion adds this watch to his collection, leaving him with just two more watches to buy to complete his five thousand dollar collection.
Building a luxury watch collection can be a daunting task, especially when you’re on a budget. But with a little bit of research and some savvy shopping, it is possible to build a collection of your own. Brighton Billion shows us that even with a giveaway in mind, it’s important to stay on budget while still finding quality timepieces. With a Tudor 1926 watch, a Mido Ocean Star Tribute, and a Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 565 watch, Brighton Billion is well on his way to creating a collection worth admiring.
