The Purge: Paring Down To a Two-Watch Collection

The Purge: Paring Down To a Two-Watch Collection

Postby Racer-X » March 12th 2019, 2:49pm

"I recently went on a bit of a selling spree in an attempt to downsize my personal collection into something a bit more manageable. Frankly, too many of my watches were sitting in a box collecting dust, and I’m of the mind that if I’m not using something, then it’s got to go. And so I channelled my inner Marie Kondo and began a period of selling that I’ve jokingly referred to as “the purge.”

I found myself rationalizing (or, rather, I was attempting to rationalize) why I was holding on to some watches and flipping others. Most went bye-bye simply because I grew out of them (we’ve all been there). A handful were sold because they weren’t being worn regularly, though I was still fond of the watches themselves. And some I kept even though I hardly wore them simply because they had sentimental value attached to them. I’m happy with where I’m at now, though to any normal person the number of my personal watches would still be quite baffling."

I haven't had only 2 watches since high school... although I do need to downsize.

His remaining two are good ones

This Marie Kondo seems to be ubiquitous now. Heathen.

Oh, no, not again, not the two-/three-/four-/five-watch collection load of bollocks... WUS public forum is full of threads about that, and they're always the same. An OP brings up that silly idea, and all the resident Knowers of Fuck-All give it a verbal bukkake. Oh, and who the hell's Marie Kondom?

Hmmm, wonder which one he'd wear mowing the lot or shoveling a few feet of snow?

Not to mention that 2 of anything doesn't constitute a collection. Collections begin at 3.

I'd be happy with three four.............

next question, what is the best means of selling the remainder?
