Ownership vs Usage

Some time ago, I added the Casio Oceanus T200 to my collection, and it’s an absolute stunner! Solar-powered, Bluetooth connectivity, Multiband 6, titanium-coated steel, impeccable construction—this watch is the epitome of sleek, svelte sophistication and as "smart" a watch as I could ever want. Yet, I find myself cherishing the ownership of this watch more than actually wearing it. 🤔

As a huge Casio fan, this piece feels like the crown jewel of my Casio collection. But it makes me wonder: why don't I wear it more often? Maybe i'm hesitant to risk any wear and tear? Or perhaps the joy of simply owning such a masterpiece outweighs the daily use.

Do any of you feel the same about your prized watches?

Should I sell it and buy something else?

Would love to hear your thoughts!

No, I wear my most expensive watch rather often. It would be a waste of money if I didn't, and the fact that I like it only makes it easier.

I certainly have watches I only wear in special circumstances, and they spend most of their life in a box. That's OK for me though; I enjoy building a collection. That said, they do all get worn, when I want to.

Who are you saving it for? Enjoy the watch. 🙂

Some watches can be enjoyed as engineering works of art without necessarily wearing them. But that's coming from someone who's trying to rescue discontinued pieces from the depths of obscurity.

The issue for some (including myself) is rotating through the depth of watches I own.

Use your watch, our time is very limited in this earth.

I have the same watch and a very similar problem.

As much as I love the watch and it’s in my regular rotation watch box, I don’t wear it as much as my other watches.

I love the look and feel and the convenience it brings, but I seem to wear other watches more.

It’s a problem of having too many watches. 😅

You hit the nail on the head a bit there - simply put, I have too many watches...

I wear most my watches regularly. I have some reserved for special occasions but they were bought with that in mind.

I solved this by switching watches, I dunno, 4-5 times a day. I'm told it's normal behavior.

Where did you buy the watch?
