I Cannot See a Logical Freaking Collection

Postby tiktok » December 3rd 2017, 4:21pm

Really not feeling warm about my collection and nowhere to go. Woke up it was a Chelsea morning and all I see is a hall of blunders. I have depleted my Grand Seiko collection, I really like the SBGJ203 and would move on it if I could move all these mid tier watches. I have a Damasko LE that I overpaid, I never give a crap if I overpaid and will eat my folly to prove to sell. I.got a kewl early Omega Co-axial 150, I got a beautiful Mark XVI that would be hard too part with. I have a small collection of watches that would be hard to move:
Nienaber Retrolator, Nubeo 43 Jellyfish, , I've got an oversized Reverso, the Squadra Palermo, Clerc chronometer. Finally I have a Richard Lange boutique limited edition. I bought it because the seller took sapphires which I had a bunch of that were not high enough grade to make center pieces. I guess my first step back to happiness would be moving the Clerc and something else to pay for a SBGJ203. Any insight Lords?

It sounds as if you are afflicted with what foggy would call a dreadful ennui. I've found that if wearing a certain watch brings me no more joy, out it goes, for the best price I can get for it, and move along to something else.

Well, it's evolving like any collection. Seriously though I can't figure out what I'm doing myself. I've always kind of envied those who have the focus to figure out what they want and stay on the path to get there.

Dude, your collection is good, just add to it. Screw the one in one out, that is the flaw.

Your good taste in watches is evident...why not just take a couple of strolls around NYC, visit some stores, & find some inspiration?..

Yeah, pick some movements and some looks you like. If they can combine then great, if not pick and choose what you want and keep em, that is a collection.
You are an artful guy with taste, you can't be bound by self imposed rules of one in one out. Build a collection on what you find collectible and wearable and let it fall into place. Seriously, how many people would love your problem right now?

Thanks peeps, nothing like the Lords to talk one off the ledge. JLC told me they are releasing an "affordable" jaw dropper next spring. And this AD really knows my taste or lack thereof....

I should recuse myself due to conflict of interest. After all, you did double my GS collection.

But as an internet buddy I'm glad you were talked off the ledge. I can find my own GS I guess, maybe.

Selling to Hawk is worth every penny I fleece him for. Great buyer. Right now it's just getting bizarro as to Grand Seiko's directions. While all you sheep lining up for the green Hi Beat I'm leering in on that black dial Hi Beat GMT.

The clerc is a nice watch, reviewed one here on the forum. Most folks would love to have your problem. Just look around and settle on what really pulls your chain.

Why must a collection be logical?
