What watch did you yearn for, but have never bonded with?

Point of No Return: a critical point at which turning back or reversal is not possible. 

When I learned of the new metal square, read all about it, began a voracious lust for it, and then bought it…I thought this new union would be forever. “Truly”, I thought, “this is a match made in heaven!” I was delirious with joy.

After a short honeymoon and a lot of ‘amazing wrist time’, my joy turned to routine, then apathy…but always with the melancholiac yearning to make it work.

A year has passed and the two of us barely speak…let alone share a wrist very often. What happened? I know I will never leave my metal square…and I think it feels the same way. Alas…I guess we’ll just grow old together…always with a tinge of disdain between us.

What is your watch you so yearned for, but have never bonded with? Share your sad story!

If your metal square was black, would you feel differently?  That one you got always reminds me of this:

Go find that G-shock a new home if you don’t have a bond with it and let someone else enjoy it!

Purged 5 watches from my collection (now down to 4) and it’s been liberating.  I don’t feel that tinge of regret of not giving a watch enough wrist time or the burden of keeping a number of infrequently worn solar watches charged up.

Maybe not. If I was in the Battlestar Galactica Universe, I might end up being recruited to the Cylon Collective.

I bought it mainly because of my DW5600 I got in 1989. It’s a beautiful watch, so I’ll probably have it as long. Just one of those deals I guess.

I had similar feelings towards my steel g-square. Before you call it off, try putting it on an OEM rubber strap.

Doxa, can't get into it at all.

I also kind of hate the name Casio OceANUS.

When I think Cylon, this is more what I picture...

I had a CWC CW C63 LE GMT that I thought I would absolutely love... turns out I didn't.

So I sold it and bought this, which I love.

Yeah, that’s the Marathon you wore today. I remember thinking how nice it is while viewing your wrist-shot this morning.

That's what I think of too, which is why I can't imagine not loving that watch.
