Chronosport Sea Quartz 30. I got it for high school graduation and sold it for an automatic a few years later. It was a good watch but sent it out every year for servicing and it would take like 5 weeks to get back!

I regret selling a lot of them but I'm always short on cash and something else is calling.....

Some of the nicer ones:
Custom Marcello C Trident with modded date wheel, hands and brush finish
Omega Dynamic Chrono
Oris BC3+
Seiko Samurai
Seiko Arnie
Zodiac Orange Oceanaire
Etc....

Doesn't apply to me yet, but I'm sure it will in the future.

Now, don't anybody get offended - I'm not trying to piss people off.

And I truly am grateful that so many of you have passed on an absolute bargain due to dire circumstances, both here and brother forums

I hope my cash has helped and rest assured that your lost darling has gone to a good home, if I was the one who snapped it up, but...

How could you?

I mean, which child would you sell first?

Hell, which testicle?

These little ticking monsters caused untold angst in the acquiring, sometimes for years.

Sell one? *




* this post offered in jest and in thanks to the many sellers who have swollen my collection

I know it isn't much, but I had an early Timex Indiglo Ironman. It was the early '90's and I consider it my first "real" timepiece. It took a crash and the crystal cracked and got put in a drawer. I wish I still had it, due to the changes in technology and such. It was a neat watch to have.

I lost a Citizen Promaster D060 in the ocean. I didn't miss it till a few minutes later, should have had a nato strap. Allthough I didn't sell it I would get another one, but the few I've seen are priced at up to a grand. I think I paid $135, and that was at JC Penny.

Can't send a pic of the watch I so foolishly sold because it's been gone
35 years. Wasn't even a wrist watch. It was a pocket watch. The Hamilton
950b RR Grade. Sold it (just like fabled Jack and the bean stalk). Boy here's
a sale I wish I hadn't made.
Checked with a local antique RR watch dealer. He had one Hamilton 992b
and one 950b. Wanted $500.00 for the 992b and $800.00 for the 950b. The
992 was in 18 karat gold, the 950 in white gold. Have good pocket watches
rose in selling prices or what?

Haha thx but hookups aren't plentiful on this one. Tough to find anymore. I always check ebay and watch recon for one to pop up.

I got given an Omega dress watch for my 18th birthday.

Didn't appreciate it at all and mislaid it just a few days later.

What an ingrate I was.

My biggest regret is getting rid of my very first watch, the Casio CA-90 Calculator watch. This bad boy helped me get through pre-algebra. Like a fool I sold it at a garage sale when I was 17. I've thought about buying a replacement off of ebay but it just wouldn't be the same.

Chronosport SeaQuartz 30. Wore it hard diving for years. I ended up selling it for an automatic Tag because every year I sent it to the company for battery and seal replacements and it took 4-6 weeks to get it back.
