apparently the anticipation while hunting certain rare and limited models for months or weeks at the usual dealers and websites is the most fun in collecting.
Last October it happened to me that I have completed my collection of Breitling models - to have one watch for every occasion: A seawolf on rubber, an aerospace on a NATO, two navitimers (black on leather and white on bracelet), an automatic chrono on leather and a vintage chrono on a NATO.
Now last year went pretty well financial-wise and I feel the need of getting another watch. I think you know what I mean. I've been browsing websites for weeks and cannot get myself to find a model that I want.
Do I really want another automatic?
Do I really want another quartz?
Do I really need another dress watch?
Do I really need another sports watch?
Do I really need another Breitling?
Do I really need another watch at all?
Maybe I need to reduce to just 2 or 3 watches at all?
Should I get a corvette instead? :-D
I think I have come to a point where I cannot justify getting another watch, which for some reason makes me sad.
Did that happen to you at some point?
How did you get over it?
Looking forward to your answers / suggestions.
