How many watches do you purchase in a year?

Obviously This varies depending on price for many people but whats a good number of watches to purchase in a year?  

·

I was horrible this year … bought about 30 … in all fairness they are allover the price spectrum … but yeah … I’ve got a problem for sure 

·

10 for me, but certainly wanted more.  Let's see what 2023 brings!

·

You won't get me to admit that number without serious coercion.

7

Purchased 10, which has been about my average for the past 5 years. 
 

But, returned one for refund (Chris Ward C63 Sealander GMT) and one won’t be delivered till next year (Baltic MR01).  Two were gifts for family members. So added 6 to the collection.   

In my defense the collection is smaller now than a year ago though due to gifting about a dozen watches to family members. 

My goal this year is to continue to shrink/refine the collection by selling and or gifting  some more watches and limiting purchases to one or two for the year. I’m hopefull bu not optimistic I’ll succeed. 😬

·

My goal is one or none per year moving forward. 

Bought 20 this year

·

Around 25 this year.

Same sentiment start acquiring 2-3 per year.

Good luck with that!

11 here. I think I want to save for more expensive watches on my list. Maybe here and there build some. We'll see? 🤔

·

I only bought 2, but acquired another 17 as gifts.

35+ watches bought this year (and that’s excluding auction job lots) - thats bad isn’t it.. I’d like to hope I’ll sell way more than I buy next year. Ideally buying none (or perhaps if I get a call from the Rolex AD..)

Me too

It’s a horrible horrible problem

I finally started getting serious about collecting this year… I had 5 crappy watches and 1 decent watch previously (gave 2 crappy watches away)… so I acquired 13 in total this year… 2 were gifts, 1 sold to a family member, 1 returned, 4 sold, 1 was a family heirloom inherited, and 4 are still in my collection (1 will be a keeper for life, but the other 3 could go for something else). I’ve learned a lot this year about the beauty of this hobby, plus the styles I like to wear, how/where to buy and sell, etc. However, I am hopeful to slow down a bit now that I’m refining what I like. So my goal would be for less than half next year... maybe only 6 new acquisitions next year? Happy New Year everyone!

Too many to keep track of, (Mostly Timex).  Now that my Marlin (Peanuts x) and Q (All colorways) is complete, I am done with my collection.  I think 90 is enough.  lol
