Halios Puck & Boschett CDII
Halios Puck & Boschett CDII
Zodiac Oceanaire. All it took was ~1 min of wearing it. Big and crude. Shame because it looked so good (in pictures).
Hamilton Khaki Below Zero 1000m.
I tried one on at Tourneau.
Loved the feel of it on the wrist, on the rubber strap in the brief minute I had it on.
Loved how it looked on my wrist in the mirror.
Balked at the asking price there.
Picked one up on the grey market.
Threw a heavy mesh on it.
Thought it looked sweet.
Took some great picks of it.
Got bored with the combo.
Mounted it on the OEM bracelet.
The crown really dug into the top of my hand.
The huge numbers on the dial reminded me of an easy reader watch an elderly person might wear.
Flipped it for the worst hit percentage-wise I've EVER taken on a watch. (Touneau's price $1495, Grey market price paid $1095, Sold for $625 in new cond. after several times bumping my ad.)
Total, I owned the watch just over a week before 86ing it.
Lost, after PP fees + shipping $510 on the flip. The price I paid to lease it for the week.
(I can laugh about it now, but it wasn't so funny then. Thank goodness I didn't buy it at Tourneau for $1495 + tax)
Took another two weeks for the imprint from the crown on top of my hand to fade.

A man's watch is a very cherished thing. You steal that, you might as well be stealing his soul.
Helson Shark Diver PVD/orange..because I was absolutely underwhelmed
LumTec M3 Diver, because of its crappy bezel action..
Doxa | Tudor | Fortis | UTS | Sinn | Benarus
Dagaz Zero Stealth. Flipped it within 5 days as I had the chance to get an El Buzo. Flipped the El Buzo within a week to get my Bronze Aquadive. Absolutely nothing wrong with the Zero or El Buzo, I would still happily have them both back but needed the cash to obtain one of my grails. Now I'm thinking of letting the Bs100 Bronze go as I chase another. Such is this hobby of ours!

Halios Puck DLC. Always intrigued by the Puck and when the DLC was announced I knew I had to have one. Wore it on my wrist for less than an hour and knew it wasn't going to work so off it went to a better home and WUS member. Crazy thing is I kind of want another one. Help me!
I flipped my classic Tsunami, and I didn't even try it on. While I was waiting for it to be built, I convinced myself I needed to buy a MM300, and the only way I was going to get the funds for it would be to sell off most of my collection, which included the Tsunami. I really liked the watch, though.
I sold off my Olivier Bronze pre-order for various reasons.
Human existence is completely dependent on the top 6 inches of topsoil and the fact that it rains.
Makes sense to me- simple economics.
Most of us don't have the deep pockets required to own and keep everything. Frequent flipping allows those of us w/o the deepest pockets to own and experience varying watch styles, movements, models.
As for me I got it in my head that I needed an EcoZilla, chased one down here at the forum, less than 24hrs after it arrive... flip.
