Thread: Watch diet

  1. #1

    Watch diet

    Just curious what's the longest you have gone without purchasing a new watch. Looking at my history it looks like it was 14 months.
    Cheers,

    Richard

    21 months, it looks -- that's the most notable break I register and I doubt there was a longer one earlier.
    I'm sorted and so not buying any more watches.

    I can’t be sure, but it’s probably around nine months.

    I have no idea, however, it probably has not been very long.

    The last one I bought was in July 2018, but only for research purposes (bronze case) - doesn't count. A proper watch: January 2017. I've been very frugal, lately.

    Trying to classify it as a research (or non-proper) watch doesn’t detract from the fact that you still bought a watch.....

    But not for me. It was a experiment - strictly scientific - in favour of mankind and world knowledge. Therefore, it has to be classified as a gift.

    If you don't count my Suunto Core, which I don't, because I didn't spend any money on it and I only bought it to wear to the gym and you do count my Submariner, which was actually a gift, that makes it since June 2017. That's about 20 months.

    Oh wait, shit. That's not right. I bought a Tudor Heritage Chrono blue, didn't I? That was March 2018, so that's 11 months at my current streak. Man, I can't believe I forgot about that. Such a nice watch, I just felt like it wasn't me when I was wearing it. Like I was wearing someone else's watch.

    So 11 months is probably my longest stretch. It was 4 or 5 months from Black Bay to Ranger, then about 7 months from Ranger to Submariner. Before then, it was much more frequent.

    Two attempts to weasel out of watch purchases already! Must be in the WIS DNA?
