I just recently purchased two new watches and I am already negotiating trades with them. It hasn’t even been 2 weeks since I was in the AD purchasing them and now I am getting ready to say goodbye. :eek:hmy:

So I am wondering, what is the average time you spend with a watch?

For me it seems to range between a few months and a few weeks.

Best regards,

I don't sell or trade my watches. I've had one for more than thirty years.

I have given some watches that I bought for myself away as gifts, but that's rare.

I don't really have an accurate average, but once I've gotten one, it's likely to stay with me until lost or stolen, or rarely, given away.

Larry great photo and collection.

As for me some stay and some go to a friend, family, traded, or sold off.
Only my late father's Rotary will alway be in my collection along with the three from my wife.

Thanks guys..:blushing:

But let me caveat by saying that I've probably given or tossed just as many Pulsars, off brands, and clearance table watches that I have received, or purchased over the years too.

So, for me, it really depends on the watch if it's a "keeper" or not..

And sometimes you have no control..

In the early 90's a house break-in took a box full of Rolexes and Omegas that I foolishly left in a "display" box on the coffee table..

Sometimes pride can be a real bummer...

I would have to agree with Larry, it really depends on the watch. I have sold a few watches in the last three months, but will keep 6 forever. Two Hammys, One Accutron, Two Bulovas and one Seiko.

For me it is a constant rotation. I have two I will never let go, but the rest are always negotiable.
Im with you on that, as soon as I buy a new one another one catches my eye and the cycle continues. I might need to talk to someone about this destructive cycle :001_unsure::001_smile:
