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.
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..)
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!
I want your family & friends 😉😂
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
