Well, well.

A couple of months ago I sold my C65 Yellow LE. At the time, I just wasn't sure and decided that rather than just keep it, I ought to sell it.

Well, when @Gower8484 (Daniel) listed the same watch for sale (not the same watch, different serial number you understand), with similar reasons for selling, I took the opportunity to purge my seller's remorse, and repurchased the watch, which arrived this morning.

This time, I will wear it and enjoy it. :D

Maybe the recent brightly coloured CW releases rekindled the attraction. 41mm is better than 36mm for me, though.

Here, on an FKM tropic strap until I can resize the bracelet.

I sometimes get to thinking that the best strategy for getting rid of some of my watches is simply to sell the ones I don’t wear. But I think it was Neil (nbg) who said something recently that made me realise that some watches might not be worn so much but, wow, you enjoy wearing them from time to time. I think this watch would fall into that category for me.
Glad you have one back in the box :thumbup:

Glad to hear you have it back! It looks great on the yellow tropic, too.

Mine fits in my collection exactly as Lindsey said above. Not worn as often as others, but I’ll always keep it because I get great enjoyment when I do wear it. Mine has the added benefit of a serial number special to me :D

Good you have the boomerang watch back. I haven’t yet had much of a compelling reason to sell watches. I enjoy what I have even as I wear them to varying degrees. Kind of like art, it doesn’t have to do a thing to be enjoyed.

I feel the same way. I might not wear my C60 GMT that often, but I really enjoy it when I do.

This is how I feel about my Tribus TRI-03 - it's the most formal watch I own, and as such doesn't get worn nearly enough so I've thought about moving it on, but whenever I take it out of the watch box and pop it on my wrist I fall in love all over again!

@JAFO, congratulations on the 'new' watch! I've loved the C65 yellow LE from afar for a while now, sadly I never seem to have enough pennies in my pocket on those rare occasions when they pop up for sale!
