Re: New In - Tissot Seastar Chrono: Moonwatch Cousin

Watches that have haunted you?

Not many watches I’ve regretted not buying, however there are many watches I’ve bought, that I regret not buying when they were first released, when I could’ve bought them for a song. There have been a number of watches I’ve really regretted selling (circumstances), and some of those have been purch...
