I might have the record. For me, it was the Breitling Aerospace. Had the original, called a "Navitimer" then, a 56-series, and a 1999 Repetition Minutes. Traded the original for a laptop, sold the second, and bought the third. Won't make that mistake ever again.

Seiko SARB 035. Payment from the buyer was reversed and I had to recall the package the day before delivery. I realized I should not have sold it from the beginning. I lost $40 in the process.

I traded a really good example of the 6015 Willard years ago.. it was a bad trade :) ... took a lot more to get another one years later as the prices have shot up on these.

SKX007. Twice.

But I also regretted buying it each time, because it really was just too big, so I sold it a third time and was done.

Seamaster 2531.80. At least 3-4 times. Then the 2220.80. At least twice. I have a sick history with the Bond Seamaster.

I don't count some other watches I sold and picked up in a different size/configuration (Datejust, Aqua Terra) or made an improvement that I wanted (Speedmaster).

Both of my current ones fall into that category.

Aquis Clipperton, wore it almost every day for a year and a half and suddenly thought I'd be happier with a Seiko marinemaster. Bad move, and one I was thankfully able to fix pretty quickly.

Stowa Marine Original. Liked the original one I had but didn't realize how much until I sold it. Been watching for one to pop up and it finally did last week.

Daytona 116500, thought it was the top of the market and didn't get as much use so cashed out last year and boy was I wrong. Ended up missing it badly and purchased again this year.

Thanks to those who replied. I am glad to see I am not just another "N of 1" in making a questionable decision to sell or trade ! -Stu T -
