Yeah, I understand some folks will always desire more variety. You are certainly welcome to your own opinions and doing what works best for you.I resemble that remark! I don't think I have 50+, though.
For me, it's an affordable variety thing. I don't aspire to a 3-watch collection. I know I'd want more variety. I will grant that I have some near duplicates that could bo away, though. I think I could appreciate quality, but I don't seem to be willing to spend that much on any one watch.
But because this is WPAC, going along with Lee’s earlier advice to break the habit, I agree with the suggestion that in general, consolidating multiple affordables into one well thought out luxury watch might be a solid exit strategy for a chronic buyer.
Note that I don’t necessarily mean something brand new and super expensive either: Mid-Size Seamasters from a few generations ago, Sinn 104/556, Vintage dress pieces, many really nice options in the 1-2k range that I would gladly take over 10+ affordables, and be much less likely to flip or buy something else in a similar category.
