    Damn Curiosity!!

    This thread is dedicated to all those watches that tempt you so much that you end up getting them. I've got a long list of them, and have sold most of them. The only ones I still have is my Sinn 556 and my Helson bronze 42mm.

    But I still can't let go of the hold that the Seiko Marine Master 300m has on me. It's probably too big for me, and too high, but every time I see one for sale on the forum, my finger twitches.

    Others that I've fallen prey to are:

    Seiko Ti Samurai's

    Seiko Stingray Scubamaster

    Omega PO

    Casio G-Shocks

    Citizen Ray Mears and their offshoots

    ... and probably a few more I can't remember at this time.

    Fortunately, I don't miss any of those, but I had to taste their worth.

    Damn curiosity! If I could only get right to what I was looking for.

    Re: Damn Curiosity!!

    Ah that's happened to me a few times... even though I had a feeling the watch may not suit me, I decided to give these a shot given the reviews and comments I've heard about them:

    Christopher Ward C60
    Citizen Unobtanium (giving PVD another chance)
    Maratac Pilot
    Orient Mako
    Seiko BFK (trying out Kinetic)
    Seiko Spork x2
    Seiko Samurai
    Stowa Seatime
    Vostok 1967 and other Russian watches
    Yobokies modded Seiko
    and many sub homages

    All are gone for one reason or another, and I don't miss any of them (except possibly the Stowa).

    Re: Damn Curiosity!!

    The MM300 wears smaller than its specs suggest due to its short lugs. However, it is a tall watch and it does have heft, but I found that got used to it, especially considering that I have 6.5" thin wrists.

    I now know what I like in a watch in terms of size and proportion, so I'm looking for a thinner and lighter watch to replace the MM300 come next year, though. It is a great watch overall and I think all WIS should own it at least once. I say pull the trigger and enjoy it for a while.

    The two that I am sure will get the best of me at some point, even though I could afford something better are:

    Seiko Monster
    Vostok Amphibia

    I just have to find out what these are all about... I am tempted to buy the Monster about once a week, but resist because I think I should buy a SARB instead. However, I resist buying the SARB because I think I should not spend that much when it would put me that much closer to a more substantial piece, so it's a Catch 22.

    The Damasko and the Sub are total keepers. The Cellini is a great dress watch, but I wear it once a month tops.
