some times I have to strictly follow the one in one out rules to keep the number of watches enough to have wrist time

but the point it sometime I'm so interested in a new watch and try to sell one of the current watches, but sometimes it is so hard/take long time to sell

I'm feeling up-set and impatient waiting for the current watch to be sold before buying a new one !

should I do the reverse as buying a new watch first and then selling the current one? will it make me more relieve or just feeling more guilty?

What is your rule? In first or Out First?

thanks for your opinion !

no rules, doesn't matter what order. Just list the one you want to sell and buy the one you want to buy. If it takes that long to sell, then drop the price.


If you need to sell one in order to afford to buy the next, then your question is answered for you.

Typically I find the deal I want before mine is sold, so I go in first. That being said, I always make sure I offload a piece to offset. No chance of me just adding to the collection.

Would depend on the circumstances. If the incoming was being bought new and timing a deal wasnt a consideration, the out watch would go first. If the incoming was pre-owned or hard to come by and an opportunity presented itself before the out watch could be sold, I'd grab the incoming while I could.

I usually keep an eye out for a deal on any number of watches I'm interested in. If I find a deal, I'll buy it and decide what needs to go later.

In reality it tends to go: Buy, buy, buy, buy... Ok, this is getting out of hand!! Sell, sell, sell...

Luckily, because I only buy when the price is right, I usually come out even or a little ahead.

I usually end up having the incoming first since I'm impatient. And I like to see how the new one fits into the rotation and collection as well.

sell first!

when i can't sell something i just drop it on ebay as a $1 auction. you generally will get a fair price that way - though i understand reservations about doing this with a higher end piece.

unless you see a serious bargain on exactly what you want, sell first.

Yep in first. Always keep an eye out for a few watches, and if I find at the right price, usually don't have much time to pull the trigger, so I'll buy first and sell later.

The only time I could see selling first, is if I needed the funds first, which might be the case for some more expensive watches. I think only once I sold a watch, I knew I didn't connect with, then shopped around for its replacement.

I usually just sell the watches I know I won't be wearing often enough without needing a replacement for them. If I'm buying something similar to what I already have in the collection, then I usually buy first before selling the piece it's replacing. If I kept the watch in my collection then it's usually for good reason, and I'll want to compare the two to make sure I'm keeping the right one.

I buy when I see a watch I really want, I sell when I fall out of love with a watch. Sometimes both occurrences even intersect.

Yep me too . . . cause more often than not, the new one in is the one that leaves ;-)
