I acquired a Damasko DA46 about a week or so ago. Now, I don't want to wear my other watches from my very small collection. My Hamilton Khaki field mechanical sits in the box (may eventually get sold though). My Citizen Eco-Drive diver sits on the night stand soaking up rays, and my Mondaine Simply Elegant (my "dress" watch) stays in the box as well. I am loving my DA, but probably should go back to the rotation at some point. How long before you stop being infatuated with your newest acquisition?

Let it roll... enjoy it...you'll know when the time is right to go back to a rotation.

I have never had one watch that just pushed the others to the back. Sometimes I don't wear a new watch for days.

When you add more to the stable I think you'll see what I'm talking about. But what you're doing seems normal; all things considered. Who knows though. You may always be that way and quickly sell watches that get little wrist time. We're all different.

About a week or two after purchase the honeymoon usually ends and I will start to notice the little quirks. After that, it either stays as part of the collection or out the door.

+1. Each person, and each watch is different. I've had the "honeymoon" period last several weeks, but my last one (a couple of weeks ago, new Seiko 5 50th anniversary limited edition World Time) lasted only a few days before I was back in rotation mode. You'll know.

A "honeymoon" period, I like that. Well, I will just wear what moves me and hold off on any decisions to sell anything for a little while.

Happens to everyone. I am going through it with my Longines right now. Depends on the watch for how long it lasts (and probably the quality of the surrounding collection) but usually mine is a few weeks, after that it's business as usual.

My honeymoon period typically last 3-4 weeks including a trip (if there's one)

This year my new watches have been travelling a lot
Pam 441 to HK and Tokyo for hanami (and possibly for my next trip to Sapporo and Tokyo)
Seiko SBDX011 to HK,Sg,Brazil and Peru (more like 2 months)
Pam 123 worn to Dubai and Bangkok

I always enjoy all of my watches, and try to wear them on a rotating basis so the newness does not wear off too soon.

However, I have a few that I always fall back on, so enjoy it as much as you want.

I'm currently going on two months straight with my Steinhart OVM. Can't take it off or quit looking at it. I own much more expensive watches but am currently enamored with the OVM. Best watch for my dollar ever. It also is running at -2 seconds per day on my wrist. Pretty impressive.

I will deliberately wear others in my collection, otherwise what's the point in having more than one, but even after seven months I often end up with my TSAR on my wrist again by the end of the day. Now that I've "discovered" handmade/custom straps I think the passionate honeymoon has evolved into a comfortable and comforting marriage.

I knew this would happen Zig!

My problem is that I have too many watches that I like, so I never feel like *any* of them get enough wrist time!

About two weeks for me as well, as I don't think any longer would be 'fair' to my other watches which are equally enjoyable . Plus, deliberately not wearing it for some time makes me like it even more once I put it back on.

I never pull the trigger on a watch unless I'm 100% sure I want to own it. The honeymoon period normally lasts a couple of weeks but not all watches were created equal. My absolute fave is 8 months old now and I've managed to wean myself of it a bit so it only gets worn on alternate days. In between the rest of the rotation gets a go.

Usually the "honeymoon" lasts 3-4 weeks... then I get back to the usual "rotation", that means I wear the one I like most at the moment I have to choose.

That is one of the best looking fleigers I've ever seen, so I don't blame you for one second for not returning to the rotation yet. I'm currently doing that because of a new strap I recently acquired for my Strela, the strap makes me want to wear the watch every day.

Here's a pic:

You'll get over it trust me...From experience this is also the worst time to make a "sales" decision as it could become regretful.

Still going through it with an Oris Big Crown Pointer Date although I find myself wandering to the attentions of others periodically.
