WHAT I BOUGHT IN JANUARY!

Shout out to those who made a watch plan for 2024 and to those that made it through January and stuck to it. One month down!

Did you do it? One watch per month perhaps? Money in the kitty for a goal watch later in the year? Reduce your collection? Repair rather than replace?

January sailed by without a watch purchase for me which is new territory since I caught the bug in 2019. I'm notoriously unfocused in my collecting with little thought of strategy so it would be nice to bear down a bit.

Hoping to hear how your plans are developing and looking forward to seeing any related pics.

i personally don鈥檛 get it. it takes me years to research and stalk listings before i will even entertain the thought of buying. some pieces on my watchlist have gone from merely preowned to vintage while waiting for me to make a decision.

Haven鈥檛 bought anything since last August or so. It鈥檚 getting to be about that time, though. I can feel it. 馃槅

Lately I鈥檝e been dumping funds into other stuff. It can suck having multiple expensive interests and hobbies.

Maybe you've just mastered wringing out every drop that is the joy of the hunt. 馃憤

Awwww. A fellow hoarder!馃ぃ

My last purchase was October 2022, nothing in 2023. Bought my new Aqua Terra this week - that will likely be it for 2024!

I made a promise to my wife that I wouldn鈥檛 buy any new watches in 2024. So far so good! 1 month down 11 to go.

Haha!

I鈥檓 actually not! I鈥檝e watched those shows with my wife before. I find the thought pretty horrific. I wouldn鈥檛 call myself a minimalist, but I try to keep things to a reasonable minimum.

I'm holding strong, but the temptation to get that Falcon had to be resisted once or twice already.
