    Lol that's called investing for your future lol...I have a friend that buys anything solid gold and hordes it...he buys it cheaper than what the weight of gold is on the market...he's been doing it for about 20 years last I checked he had over 5 million U.S. just sitting around if he were to melt it all. So he can technically retire this instance and he's only 39.

    Reformed hoarder. If I haven't worn something in over a year, it's probably time to get rid of it. That being said, better to sell than to toss. I've whittled down my collection quite a bit over the past two years...I'd estimate a 75% reduction.

    Re: Do you flip or hoard?

    I'm not sure it's a binary choice. Why and how we collect is probably far more complicated and variable than that. I don't think there is a single, natural progression.

    But to answer the question-- I started early on flipping quite a few watches. But in recent years, my collection has become more stable and I sell (or buy) watches more and more infrequently.

    I am in awe. That is an amazing hoard.

    Re: Do you flip or hoard?

    I’ve sold watches to fund others, but that’s mostly based on growing as a collector and understanding what I want my collection to include. That being said, shame on my for selling by Tag blue Aquaracer on eBay. It was my first mechanical watch and I got way too caught up with people trashing the brand, but that watch was very much me. Even my wife has mentioned missing that watch as she remembers me wearing it all the time when we first met. The silver lining is that I sold it to a veteran who bought it as his first mechanical watch.

    Re: Do you flip or hoard?

    Why does it seem like it's more socially acceptable to hoard G-shocks than any other watch. I have 8 (name a brand) watches... that's excessive! I have 8 G-shocks... nice going! I think there's just a lot of love out there for G-shocks

    its because theyre reasonably priced (for the most part) and there are a plethora of models and colours to choose from. other brands only have a handful of models and they all look the same (yep, watchist hate speech right there :p )

    in the words of my AD "gshock buyers are the most savviest and cost conscious because they buy one every month or two instead of one every couple years. the ones that have been doing it the longest are the hardest ones to sway a purchase from". pretty sure that was a dig at me for being a perpetual tyre kicker haha
