Ok, so my unwritten rule for about the last 10 years has been to not buy more than one model of a brand. My thought being there are so many brands and models that I am attracted to that I want to have a diverse watch experience without becoming a flipper.
Having over 80 watches, I, of course, do have multiple models of a couple of brands. With that said, I am now at a point where I am beginning to question this philosophy. There are still a few brands/models I want to pick-up like Rolex Deepsea or Datejust ii(the only watch I ever sold was my Rolex Datejust over 20 years ago), RGM 801A, JLC, AP, and a couple of microbrands.
However, some of these purchases are obviously down the line due to price. As I move toward these purchases, I find myself considering purchases of brands I have and love like Sinn 6100 Regulateur or 556, Zenith Ultra Thin Small Seconds, Omega Aqua Terra, or Kobold SOA.
Anyway, what are some thoughts on this collecting philosophy? Silly? Should I abandon it?.....
