I counted the other day, was 61 + some others like quartz watches I had from before I was really into watches.

The most I've ever owned at one time was probably like 30-35.

Been pretty sucessfully downsizing the past 6 months or so.... down to 22 with a few more going to be up for sale soon. I think I'll be happy if I can get to like 10 watches (+ maybe a few super cheap [<$50] stragglers, not really worth selling)

Zero. I am a hoarded and a pack rat. I have thrown away old watches before I become interested in watches, but I have never sold a watch.

So, how many watches have gone through your hands over the years?
I'm nearing two years in this hobby. At the moment grand total is 6 watches, currently own 5 (check my signature). I think I'm doing alright, not too many impulse purchases, taking my time and researching.

That's like going to a restaurant and ordering the whole menu! Definitely the best way of finding out what you like...

Been collecting since 1978. Have sold/traded/given-away 14. Currently own 5.
That's some impressive restraint... Maybe even too much.

Too many to count, and too many repurchased and sold. I am a fool, a fool I tell you.

Yes, some frown on it (rightfully so) but it worked/works for me . . .

I estimate around 45 watches have been through my hands over two collecting periods: 2008-2010 and 2015-present.
Currently 9 in the collection, with another on the way.

I'm going through a major collection purge. I have sold 13 so far and have another 10 for sale. I have a few I would like to acquire and one I even ordered through an AD and put a deposit down on.

Checked my records - I have been watch collecting since November 2017.
In that time, 14 watches have come into my possession that I've sold on. I currently have 4 watches in my watch box.

I've owned 16 different watches in the last 18 months. My current collection is around 9. So I've moved, sold or traded around 7 of them for whatever reason.

Well, on the conservative side I'm going to guess somewhere around 250 sold in the past 6 years. Haven't sold a watch since September so perhaps I'm learning to like what I've in the watch boxes.

I've been in this addiction since 1999 and I used to be a serial watch flipper.

In 2010 I started keeping an album of all the watches that I sold. I would usually drop one photo in the album as soon as a watch sells.

That album currently has 116 photos so adding that to everything I sold from 1999-2009 I would probably have tried around 150 unique watches and around 20 more being re-buys.
