Watch rotation

I’m sure the question of “how often do you rotate your watches” has been asked since people started collecting so breath easy, I’m not asking.

However I would like to share a new approach for me that I’m trying to use.

I have what I would consider a modest collection of affordable pieces and have mostly worn the same 2 or 3, leaving the rest in the boxes they came in.

Since joining this group and seeing some of the incredible pieces you have, it has changed my perspective on what I have and the desire to wear each one.

My current rotation is the same watch for 7 days then swap for another one for 7 days and so on.

This length of time has given me a better chance to actually enjoy each one rather than changing 3 or 4 times a week (not that anything is wrong with that).

Anyway, that’s what I’m trying to do so please forgive the multiple WRUW posts of the same watch before I swap out to the next one.

Interesting approach! Should maybe try it myself. Currently, I am changing on a daily basis because there are „unfortunately“ various watches I like and I want to give wrist time. Beside the fact that there are too many in my regular rotation, I like the idea somehow to enjoy the same watch for more than one day.

Maybe, I will go for a slightly modified way: wear the same watch for 3 or 4 days rather than a full week, need to think about it!

I would not worry at all about the WRUW posts, you should do this how you want and feel like…

Just my two cents…

3 or 4 days sounds reasonable.

Any thing to have the time and opportunity to enjoy each one is a bonus 👍

I like the idea of your approach. It gives your watches more wrist time and you gain a better feeling on your collection. I have a YouTube channel that I review affordable watches on , so I am wearing watches I don't normally wear and this gives me an opportunity to explore different types and styles of watches that I may not normally wear. I don't think there is a right or wrong way. There is just what works for you. Sorry for the rambling.

Agreed 👍

What’s your YouTube channel called?

Been wearing the same watch for over a week, I change it when I feel like it. Sometimes multiple times a day, sometimes a week or more.

That's why I don't post WRUW every day.

My Channel is infinitekronos. I'm a new channel and I review sub $500 watches which include homages.

Like your Channel, am regularly visiting it. Gives a good insight into the portfolio of affordable watches! Keep up the good work!

I usually wear a different watch everyday ... but not always. Sometimes the same watch may find itself on my wrist a couple of daze in a row ...

Am tempted to try the weekly rotation thing 😀

I’m glad I tried it. In a way it forces me to wear one that maybe before I wasn’t sure about keeping. After a week, now I know for sure and I appreciate the look, feel and design of each one.

I enjoy seeing wristshots of the same watch day after day. It helps build the "so what"-factor behind the watch.
