Assets or Heirlooms?

Sentiment, value , remembrance .

·

Although I buy watches for me and the joy of them, my valuable/sentimental one will be passed down.

·

Have no kids, so no sentimental value for when I am gone. Will have everything sold and donated to charity.

·

I’m naturally sentimental — even as a child. So, my watches will go to my wife and kid. I hope to pass nearly all of them down myself (before I kick the bucket 🦵🪣😵).

·

I’ll pass them down but what they intend to do with them or even sell, its up to them. 
 

as a kid I didnt like the idea of forced responsibility when its not needed, so it shouldnt start with me… also im not sure if watches will be relevant in 50years time. sorry for being a wet blanket 😅

I think about this in relation to A LOT of stuff I have, from antiques, to even just a really great book collection, not just my watches. If I 'pop off' there's no kids; my wife isn't particularly interested in most of my hobbies, and would have no idea what half of it's worth. I'm increasingly thinking of making an inventory with some example prices so that when the inevitable comes, she will have some idea about it all, and not get ripped off by some unscrupulous vulture; the kind who fantasise about going around to estate sales, finding an old Rolex and offering $20 for it ("And even that's a generous offer ma'am..." types).

·

I think about this a lot. I'm hoping that my 3 daughters marry well so that I have some son-in-laws to pass them to. If not, I have some dear friends to give them to. You cant take them with you.

·

I do have a plan in place for mine should I decide to bugger off…

You can try to be buried with a watch :)

My daughter is only 9 months and am myself only 34 so I "have time" to think about it, but for now she is absolutely fascinated by my watches and can't stop trying to take them off my wrist. Yesterday evening I was cuddling her in the dark and she was mesmerized by the lume of my Farer so, if the passion is here later, I will definitely give her my watches. If not, I will be burried with them lol 🤣

I have a great story about Undertakers and my Uncle Bill's Rolex. I would never try to buried with anything made of Gold or perceived as valuable.

·

Nope , all mine.

Unless I die first then my mrs can have them.

Only one (so far) that I care about staying in the family. It’s willed.

My plan if I get to execute it is to progressively downsize my material footprint as I age. Kids get right of first refusal over stuff, and the rest I will sell or donate.

It’s all spelled out. Whatever’s left of the things I didn’t shed in my lifetime and that aren’t specifically willed to a given individual they will divvy up in a financially equitable manner or just liquidate/donate. If my family’s dynamic deteriorates over time, I‘ll change my will so that every last item will be liquidated and they can just split the proceeds.

·

My son is still very young (2). So we’ll see what hobbies/interests he develops. I’m sure he’ll get into a few of the things I am such as football, F1, watches, travel.. etc. 

Either way he can have them and do what he likes with them. I’ll give him his pick once he’s of age and before I die (hopefully). 
 

It’s actually depressing thinking about this stuff haha. 

·

I'd rather have them fight to the death over my cooling corpse. I know, I'm a terrible person.
