Thread: You tried it on but you didn't buy it.

  1. #1

    You tried it on but you didn't buy it.

    I thought there was a thread like this but a perfunctory search didn't turn one up. We have all sorts of new arrival and incoming threads but one dedicated to the ones you didn't buy might be fun. Even if you do buy it later.

    I tried this on but didn't buy it.

    I was attempting to convince myself that a 40mm cushion case is too big for me.

    It. Is. Not.

    It is also a handsome piece in real life. The one I tried on has a dial that is more charcoal than straight black. If the jewelry store knocks it down to 50% off I am probably on the hook.

    Seiko Sportura SRG017. Build quality you wouldn't believe, but would you believe that bezel doesn't turn? Look at that bezel and tell me it doesn't turn.



    It doesn't turn. I walked out disappointed

    Several Nomos models. I think I'm going to like them, but on the wrist they don't look right. I think it's straight sides on a slim case that I don't like.

    There are simply too many watches I've tried on and didn't buy. But then, I like to try on watches. I've tried:

    Ball
    Tag
    Rolex
    IWC
    GO (if I could have bought one, I certainly would have though)
    Tudor
    Breitling
    Bucherer
    Tissot
    Chopard

    Just to name a few...........

    I forgot to Panerai to the list. I liked it much more than I thought I would and could actually see me getting one someday. Sigh.......I could see me wearing a lot of nice watches......

    Tried it on. It's spectacular, in ways not easily understood or appreciated unless you see it in real life. But I still can't decide if it's too small for me.
