Too many watches....

Post by tikkathree » Thu Mar 12, 2020 11:36 am

I hit this bump from time to time.....

triggered, I'm pretty sure, by the slightly earlier than anticipated arrival of a grail, Omega Seamaster Regatta, I'm in a phase of "don't want to wear this... don't want to wear that...."

I'm only interested in wearing the new arrival :lol: :lol:

but I don't want to commit to let go any of the others :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

and then, out of the blue, I was contacted by a brand with the temptation of a new model and would I like to express a commitment.... :silent: :silent: :silent:

I guess the answer rests with me: man up ya wuss! Just wear something else and break the hypnosis :wave: :wave: :wave:

Anyone else ever get this?

Here is a dumb idea I stumbled onto a year or so ago...I keep my watches face down in my watch box so as not to see them. Then, best as I can, force myself to wear the same thing for the whole week to work. When it comes time for a change, I may not have laid eyes on a good portion of the contents for a month or more and they appear somewhat fresh and new again.
Time is fleeting....happy hour, doubly so.

Opinions vary as to whether or not I have too many watches; there's my opinion and the other halves.... I have been trying to thin the herd though (my motives are impure, as then I can buy more :lol: :lol: :lol: ).

I tend to wear a new watch for two weeks to a month before the honeymoon period cools. After that it goes into the rotation. Except for my Speedy Mk II I tend to wear each watch for a week which lets me rotate through the collection a couple of times through the year.

How are visits to the gym going? Are they helping you with the weight of the Speedy Regatta?

I struggle to get to the gym and I'm not wearing this and risking gravel rash so something else gets wrist time for the daily aerobics.
Actually I'm a long time wobbler wearer so the Regatta just feels right. Image

I think it's heavier than the Speedy Mk II but I haven't put them on the kitchen scales to find out. It is a lovely, lovely watch though.

And the answer is...... 227g against 110g for the MkII: your instinct is correct.Image
