    Do I wear it?

    I held out as long as I could but I just now bought a Frogman. I think it's a pretty cool one. Once it gets here I'm sure I'll want to wear it primarily. Is that wise, will this watch skyrocket in value and be way less interesting to buyers if I have worn it?

    Value will stay about the same and eventually it will rot and crumble so wear it while you can is my advice, these things are built for abuse after all. Nice Frog btw.

    Watches are frickin evil!

    It's my first and I cannot wait till it gets here. I almost feel like selling all I already have as I don't think I'll be wearing anything but this once it gets here.

    The first Frog is a special one! Congrats! Saying that I still only have the one but I cheated and bought 2 different strap and bezel sets to go with it!

    Never buy a watch with the thought that you might sell it.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Good advice, I'll most likely sell all my others before selling this one.

    Oh, is that ever good advice! Doing so will put it into your mind that you should/could sell it.

    Re: Do I wear it?

    The serious collector always buys two: one for wearing and one to put in the vault! There is another one for sale out there at a price similar to what you paid...

    But I'm thinking about getting it. If I do it will be YOUR FAULT for reminding me how much I've been wanting it for the last two years. So you will owe me 500 bucks. Please PayPal it right away. :thanks

    if you want to invest for money play the markets. but thats a real [expletive deleted by Moderator] hell take up s.c.u.b.a thats what shes for right?
    just my humble opinion on the topic.
