Explorer, JLC or Parmigiani

I've been "struggling" with the idea of picking up a JLC MC Calendar, Ultra-thin Moon or a Parmigiani 1950 lune, but I don't want my collection to grow, so I'm considering letting go of my Explorer (124270). Would really like to get your opinions:

Keep the Explorer or go for the JLC/Parmigiani?

Well the JLC and Parmigiani are both full on dress watches, so replacing the explorer with either of them would be a huge change. If you鈥檙e often in need of a dress watch then I would suggest to get the JLC. But if sporty is more your style, then definitely keep the Explorer馃槉

The problem is I don't need either. I've got a few sporty and a few dress and some affordable all arounders, "...ooohhhh wory, wory, wory"馃ぃ

I love the Explorer. It鈥檚 beautiful. But, I would still go for either JLC or Parmigiani. Because I can enjoy both the dial and the exhibition caseback for either watches where Explorer is solid caseback. But it鈥檚 subjective based on individual preference.

I鈥檇 keep the Explorer but that鈥檚 just me.聽

Sell the explorer to some schmuck that is willing to pay way too much for it. 聽Get the JLC. 聽

To me the Explorer is a forever keep, but I don't mind having a great watch I don't wear much. 聽I like to just have it there to look at and wear when the mood strikes. 聽Sometimes, to me, ownership can be as important as frequently wearing a watch.

But as always, do what makes sense to you.

I'd sell the Explorer and get the JLC.聽

That said, the Explorer isn't really my cup of tea... It's a luxury watch LARPing as tool watch. The JLC isn't pretending to be anything but what it is.聽

I鈥檓 inclined to keep the Explorer at least for now but I can鈥檛 stop thinking about the possibility of getting one of the others.

Yeah, that is special. But, if there is a third option, I would save enough dough to keep all 3 馃ぃ

If you got the Explorer at retail and are having this internal struggle, sell it, fund a JLC, and then get another Explorer later when you realize you miss it, which you will.

If you paid over retail for the Explorer 124270, you already made your bed.

Retail, always! love the Explorer. I think it was worth every penny but wouldn鈥檛 pay a penny over retail.

The collection is just getting too big鈥 just can鈥檛 justify it. I feel I don鈥檛 wear each piece enough as it is.

thinking of selling the explorer means you don't deserve it, call me... 馃ぃ
