Watch purchase

Be interested to hear what influences your recent watch purchase- to celebrate a memory, a treat to yourself or something else? How many of you have achieved that grail watch? Cheers

The 11.11 sale is always a good excuse to purchase more watches...

Price. I鈥檝e been looking to buy a preowned Longines Silver Arrow and found one that I thought was appropriately priced. It was well worth the wait.

Christmas present to myself because I know the wife won't get me anything good 馃槀

Just caught me eye!

I've been sitting on a couple waiting for the 11.11

I think the actual reduction was only a couple 拢 but then I claimed the 拢12 extra on each purchase and used a few coins too.

I just started collecting in June but so far just buying what catches my eye and what I think looks good on me as well as brands with lots of history and good reputations, as far as my grail watch that would be an omega speedmaster moon watch because I'm a space and sci-fi geek 馃

My last watch purchase was a Timex iykyk R_ _ _ B_ _ _. I鈥檓 impulsive, I鈥檝e been thinking of getting a Root Beer colored watch, I got an email of it being available and wound up buying it. I don鈥檛 regret buying it all, it鈥檚 a fun watch for me. I have a descendant and homage of my grail watch.

It dawned on me that I hadn鈥檛 bought a Seiko in over a year! So got my annual 鈥渇ix鈥 with the SBDL085 Speedtimer.

Early on I had a three or four Seiko a year habit. Slowly weaned myself into a two Seiko a year habit. Through willpower and discipline, and the support of numerous other brands, I鈥檓 now down to just a one Seiko a year habit 馃槵馃ぃ
