One of the things I'm beginning to like about this far up in the two months or 2 1/2 months I have been a member, is the way you guys sell watches on this forum.
One of you watch guys will say "I got this deep blue diver watch, and just doesn't get much wrist time so I'm going to sell it". I get the idea that the attitude is we appreciate watches so much, that if we have a Watch that we are not enjoying, we like to sell it and let somebody else have a chance of enjoying it. It seems the most uncynical way of selling a Watch, and I dig it

The same as me when I signed up to this forum. I read a review from one admin (who is have an eye in the avatar) and realized that watch it very suits to me, one small thing I do not accept is the price quite expensive :D :D

It's part of the disease. You get one. Get bored of it, and then see a new one you want. LOL.

The special ones are "the keepers".

And hopefully you never experience the regret of letting one go. I've been lucky so far ;)

Isn't this, pretty much, the reason people sell anything?
Yard sales are filled with things sellers got tired of-especially exercise equipment.

You are quite right that is the main reason.
But the best thing is, sell through this forum and you are selling to someone who shares the passion and appreciation.

selling through the forum allows the whole primitive man hunt & kill

to be re-lived-


as stated above a symptom of the disease-

an itch that can't be scratched-

as D.LLAMA sez; " you can not satisfy the desire for material goods through acquisition, you can only stoke the flames "


stoke the flames nice & hot baby...gimme that 3 hand tool & throw in a FLIEGER-

That is correct. It's surprising to hear the words of the Dalai llama want to watch collecting for him, but I dig it

Low wrist time has never been a reason for me to sell. I collect watches and not just to wear them. But because I've narrowed down my preference to mechanical watches all the others (bar a true vintage and a 'new' vintage LED watch) are in the process of being discarded. I'm talking battery operated quartz watches. I will soon remove them from my signature.
