Thread: I need help.......

  1. #1

    I need help.......

    Because I just can't resist temptations......

    I have told myself at the start of the year no more than 3 watches this year....and I have failed miserably.

    I thought I was somewhat done when I got the JR last month. And just last week, I attended a in-door sale organized by one of my regular AD (with discount of up to 50% on some mid-high end watches), I managed to hold back. Of course these are either NOS, discontinued models, but they are new, unworn, with full warranty, box and papers. Anyway, I was glad I didn't give in.

    Just when I thought I could hold my head up high..... I visited another AD yesterday for a chat, and walked out with another watch! #%^{*!!!

    Sigh.....

    So, since I have already committed a "sin", I will just share with members here....

    First a glimpse of it....lets see how many of you could make the right guess (hint - not a high end watch).



    I will come back over the next few hours to reveal the watch.

    Sorry, but this is the only way to make myself feel better.....

    I know dem stuff. I try a "one in one out" rule, but that works better when I have 40+ watches that range from $50-$1000, much harder when you start hoarding the hard stuff. Sorry, I can't offer advice to crack addicts, except a little hint of envy, or maybe not.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    40+ watches.....hmmm now that make me feel much better already! Thanks.

    My problem is I don't flip any of my watches (yet). Over the years, I have only sold one - because it was 47mm (yes, I know it's supposed to be big for a pilot watch), and I hardly wear it. Sold it after owning for a year, and I wore it less than 15 times.

    I can't make the text above read "Explorer II" nor the text below "Superlative"
