SOTC 2020

Post by biglove » Sun Dec 20, 2020 7:33 pm

State of the Collection, 2020

Well, this pandemic has been a real bitch. Found myself buying scads of watches, some never worn before I flipped them.

I suppose that in a world gone mad, watch buying is one of the least harmful coping mechanisms; not that I have given up vaping or managed to lose weight.

After making it through the COVID infection I had a bit of an epiphany. What would it matter if I left behind boxes of watches that were bordering on hoarding? When I take the big dirt dive, I would like to leave behind watches that will be valuable not only for sentimental value but will posses actual monetary value.

Anyway, other than a handful of watches that were gifts, I have turned over my entire collection.

Watches I wish to purchase in the next 2-3 years:
Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36
GS Spring Drive SBGA283
Sinn 903
Omega Speedmaster Racing co-axial chrono

Casio DW-291H-1BVCF
