The countdown has begun! I will guide you through my watch flipping journey. One by one. From the first to the last. What made me buy it? What made me sell it? More than 300 watches has come and gone during the years. Instead of boring you with too much technical details I will try to focus on giving you my thoughts and refelections and at the same time trying to add a personal touch to my journey by sharing some moments when the watches has accompanied me through life. Read and enjoy!

For a minute, thought that this was Big Loaf's diary.

FFS! I was waiting on someone to comment along those lines. :lol:

I, unlike the blogger, have only flipped some 101 watches in the last three years, thank you.

I could list them out with photos and reasoning, thoughts, any regrets; but, who has time.
