I really liked all three of these watches. However, my desire to downsize won out. My rule was that if I ever considered selling it, it was gone. The three that remain, I have never once considered selling.OP: Can I ask what you didn't like about either the Damaskos or Tudors enough to keep them in your collection?
Polar Explorer II, there's a crackin idea!I recently sold the Pelagos, and got the GMT. Then I sold the GMT. For some reason the Tudors aren’t sticking. So I took the proceeds and bought a few altcoins. If we get a good Q4 I’m hoping to get a Polar Explorer 2. That’s the plan anyway for now.
I am at a point where I feel I simply can't downsize. Not parting with the Omegas or Rolex, and three of the other four were gifts from my wife. That would leave the Hamilton Khaki as the only one that COULD go, but its the watch I go to for when banging around is likely (i.e. hiking, garage work, really anything where the likelihood of banging up my watch could happen).Good on you. I have no idea. Trying to figure out downsizing myself
Now there’s a comment I like 😉. I must say I wholeheartedly agree with you. I’ve had a lot of realizations about watches over the years, and my whole criteria of a “great watch” has shifted significantly since the early days. I wonder what further realizations I will have in the future. 🤔I'd have kept the three you have kept. The most iconic and versatile IMHO.
Rest were depensible in my eyes.
Yeah… I do regret letting this one go. It was in perfect condition. I made a couple grand profit when I sold it, but it’s one that will keep going up and up over the years. Ultimately I let it go because I was scared to wear it, knowing the movement was hard to get serviced and replacement components would be difficult to source if I messed up the case, pushers, or bracelet. It’s a classic if I was a real “collector” I would keep it on the shelf and take it out every once in a while to feel like Maverick.I knew it.
Read ALL the responses, and I am the only one.
I would have kept…?
The black Porsche Design chronograph!
I’ve thought about that many times, but I always prefer to wear my speedy in those rare situations. So personally, I think I should forego the dedicated dress watch category for now. I do want a Reverso someday… maybe I will become more classy as I grow older. 😂Good job slimming down the collection. I would’ve kept something dressy though.
