Thanks ... a couple of questions.
10) Keep in mind that salespeople are usually only objective about watches that
they sell.
11) The journey can be more fun than the destination.
Shortly after a purchase you may experience a let down. Let it pass, it's normal.
10 & 11 - Self explanatory, but hits home when you read it.
15) Take care of your good watches.
Get them serviced, keep them clean. They'll last longer than you will.
15 - What kind of servicing?
20) Only engrave if it is a special gift.
21 - Never crossed my mind to have them engraved, but everything I have bought has been for me Image Thanks for the tips.

Nice suggestions, koi. I am not a fan of rules usually but these seem to be presented with good intent.
