My exit watch

So for those that know me, for a while, I used to post a lot of times a day, was super engaged, and was always looking for that next watch, even the day after buying one.

Then I randomly came across this piece at the GS AD, and fell in love. I bought it on the spot, and I have lost interest in looking at watches ever since. I come back here once or twice a week, and scan the threads, but my desire to find another timepiece is gone.

Maybe it will come back, but for now, anything I try and look at just comes across as not this watch, and thus not interested.

I realize tastes are different, so most of you will look at this and think it's not that special, and I definitely get that. but for me, it's the most beautiful watch I have ever seen, and just kind of ruins everything else for me.

Congrats! Very classy piece. I dig it. 

·

It’s an awesome piece and very versatile. That said, you’ll eventually see something else that sparks joy. 

·

Congrats on finding the one that slaked the thirst!

·

Congrats on the watch, she's a beauty! 

But an exit-from-collecting watch doesn't necessarily mean an exit-from-the-conversation! 

Conversations can still be had, even if you're not interested in buying another watch :)

You're free!  When you're certified sane enough to leave the asylum, you get out of there!

I am filled with deep envy for your boredom with new releases!

·

Excellent watch and definitely one worth spending some time with. Since we are on the brink of a global recession, probably not a bad place to be with a watch that will take you through the next two years. Kudos!

·

Congratulations. This GS is a beauty… Perfect colours, dial, movement and design!

·

this is one of their 1500 LE pieces right? If you can have an AD source one for you or happen to walk into one that has it, it makes me think that the latest LE, SBGY009, will be the same.

regardless of c24 prices showing at or above retail

which gives me some relief that if I wanted to, I could always pick it up and not have to commit to that now

Heresy...

Yea, I got it about 2 months after release, in the Paris AD. not sure if any are left, but if the recession is coming, any watch you want most likely will cost less the longer you wait for it :)

I totally understand…I myself try to re spark my passion by either buying more or modding but lately some watches have lost its luster…maybe it’s just that time of the month for me …but I do envy thee for finding the last scratch for thy Ichibunz…

Congratulations, it's a beauty. When did you get it? I'm wondering if enough of a honeymoon period has passed for you to be sure you're sure... Also, do you have other watches, and have they become redundant?

I got it 3 months ago. I have 6 watches I wear in rotation, and I still wear them all the time. One of them I don't wear much at all because it's a dress watch, so will most likely sell it. This is my collection, other than the one above

Apparently, I like blue :)

Very nice collection! I've almost convinced myself to downsize to three watches, and it is the Tudor BB36 which has almost persuaded me, so a similar impulse to yours.

The mythical exit watch. Is it the watch itself or is it a shift in mindset? Congrats on finding yours!! Grand Seiko seems so solid of a choice.

Do you find the exit watch or does the exit watch find you?
