    Why can't I stay away??????

    I finally invested in my "one watch" several months back (the vintage Tudor Sub in my signature) and although I have a couple of G's lying around (my go-to GW9000 Mudman is always nearby), I mainly wear the Tudor 24/7, save for the gym and the firing range.

    So why is it I still have a hankering periodically to sell the Tudor, throw the money in the bank, and stick to a G 24/7? I've twiced owned a MIRB Frogman that I really miss and still love my Mudman.....

    Well, I will always be a "one watch" guy (99% of the time), but this forum sure makes it hard to justify making it a pricey vintage instead of a G!!!!!

    That was your first mistake.

    And that would be your second.


    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Hey, we're here to help. Send me the Tudor for save keeping, as you don't want to sell it and buy a bunch of G's you might not wear too often.

    No such thing.

    Two I think is possible, but as it seems you wouldn't want to let the Mudman go, why not have a third and stick to a one-in-one-out policy with it?

    I never really counted my battered old Mudman backup G as a violation of my "one-watch" edict, but I just picked this up at Sears on my lunch break today (20% off, couldn't resist!) so the Tudor is going into storage (or maybe ebay) for a while because this thing rocks!

    I share your feeling....I live an endless dualism/conflict between G Shock and Panerai, something tells me that I'll never sort it out....
