Goodbye to an old friend

When I first got into watches I decided I wouldn't sell any of them. Every purchase had to be long term, though if I wanted I could give a watch away. For the most parts the rules I've set for myself have served me well.

I recently made the decision to give my younger brother my Seiko. Since purchasing it I had worn it only a few times. The dial and case are gorgeous but the watch just isn't my style.

Between its dressier looks and small size it personally felt quite formal, and whilst it looked great with a suit it just didn't make sense for me to have a watch that I'd only wear a few times a year.

And so I gifted this to my younger brother. It looks great on his wrist and he loves it. I hope it brings him joy and I'm glad it's getting good use

Great gift, and you just gave yourself a gift as well if you think about it. Another watch lover in the house.

Great gift, I'd be happy to wear that with jeans and t-shirt any day of the week. Understated.

Hey you unlocked my loophole on how to refuse selling, and yet still somehow manage to keep buying without the collection growingโ€ฆ (much) ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿซ 

Joking (partially) aside, cheers man. Def the right call! I think itโ€™s a crime if a nice watch rarely gets worn. And remember what Dom said ๐Ÿซก

I gift away as well. I love when I see people wear them in the wild.

Very beautiful watch. A gray nato strap on it would be great, less dressier.

I'm also struggling with an old watch that I never thought would be selling but collection is growing and I need to release one of them.

  1. Yes it's good of you to gift that to your brother 2. Yes it's a bit small for your wrist 3. You could have put it on a Milanese bracelet to add some visual size to it so it balances out better on your wrist. 4. I find a Milanese can make a dressy watch into a daily driver ๐Ÿ˜
