    do you buy watches you may not really like bc they go on sale?

    i just bought a caspian sea monster. i've been eyeing it for 2 months and it dropped drastically in price(more than 50%) yesterday. when i first saw it.. i fell in love but as i seen more and more watches.. the lust for it began to fade. upon seeing it at such a favorable price.. the purse straps were released.

    how many watches do you guys own that you may not have put in your collection if it weren't for the price?

    Personally,never,I just buy what I like at the price I'm willing to pay for...that's why I'd rather buy pre-owned in good condition to let somebody else suffer the depreciation hit...

    Rarely if ever with new watches but I have bought several used watches due to the price. Ones I have been curious about and knew based on price I could flip them in a few months and break even or make a little money.

    No, but there is one exception. If I'm buying one as a gift and I know that the recipient has longed for it and will love it, regardless of what I think about it, I may well buy it and give to them. I don't too often do that because even when gift buying, I tend to buy things I like and that the other person will like too.

    I do, sometimes regretfully... I get emails from Jomashop all the time and bought a Luminox from them a few months back because it was so cheap, but as soon as it arrived I realized it was too big for me and flipped it immediately. Did the same thing last year with a Superocean which I actually flipped for a small profit.

    No. But watches that I do really like going on sale can be just the excuse needed to pull the trigger...

    No. I actually pay too much for watches with "pedestrian movements" because I like them though.

    No,the price may be tempting but I'd rather wear something that i really enjoy, it doesn't even feel expensive that way.

    No.....I may not buy a watch I like because the price is more than I would pay......but I have never purchased a watch just because it was affordable
