OK everyone. The year is almost over. Now fess up. How many watches have you bought this year? The ones you flip also count.

I've been only in this game since March and I have 4 in hand with one in transit and if I am lucky, I might squeeze one in before the end of the year after Christmas. Thats more in 9 months than in the previous 34 years of my life. Oy.

Only 2 this year. A Casio G-Shock AWG-100 and the Black Monster. My son arrived in March and I had not much time and money to spend on watches unfortunately, not easy with 2 small kids :( My daughter will be 3yrs in March. Hopefully 2009 will be better, I have a few nice pieces on my wish list :)

Considering I just joined this year...

Everything in my sig! So that's what, 19? And then 3 more when you count the projects that I hope to finish putting together by the end of the year :D

Plus one Black Monster that I had for a couple of days, decided an OM was plenty, and flipped.

Plus 2 Activas that came with Shnoop random boxes o' crap and an Ashworth that came with a Yugster random box 'o crap.

27 total. I don't really count those last 3 though because I didn't actually select them.

edit: forgot 2 I bought as gifts. So make that 29.

I don't know, a handful definitely, but not too many. I think I modded and restored more than I bought this year. Maybe 20 or so total. I really should be keeping track.

God now I have to have this number in the back of my head. The number is 46 watches purchased this year. I expected a lot of transitions this year after only gaining one a year for the previous 10 years since I sold my entire old collection. Sorry make the 47 I just saw my new LM-7 under the Christmas tree.

Five this year.... and gave one away. An SKX011J, Benarus Barricuda, 6309-7040, 6309-729A, and an Ecozilla, but I don't get to wear the 'Zilla until the 25th. If I can, I might sneak in another couple, if the wife isn't looking ;)
