    Forgive me father for I have sinned...It has been three weeks since my last purchase

    Just providing a little levity. I am a serial flipper, but recently picked up a Grand Seiko GMT and haven't bought or sold in three weeks. My collection consists of a GMT, a pilot (Archimedes), a diver (NTH), and a beater (g-shock). Can't say I've kicked the habit, but I have sure slowed down.

    Kinda feels good

    Sounds like you're quite satisfied with your current collection....

    I did the same when I bought my Tudor earlier this year. I just don't really care to flip anything right now; if anything, I may sell off a bunch.

    The Tudor has ruined most of my other watches and I barely wear any of them now.

    Here ya go. One spot remains for a dress/sport watch. Really like the Aqua Terras, but I'm done spending that much on a watch. The GS will be my last larger $$$ purchase in a while. Would like to find something under $1,000. I know Seiko also has some offerings, but nothing is jumping out at me.

    Just noticed the pic. The Casio is an atomic watch. Notice it and the GS are right on. The GS has been running for 3 weeks without me touching it.

    As the recipient of a self imposed watch famine I feel qualified to say that the first month is the hardest.

    Haha! I’m with you. I’ve laid off buying for awhile, but am really trying to find a new diver and am running into mild fit issues with my ~6.5” wrist so it’s order, try on, return or sell, rinse and repeat. I’ll eventually get there. :)

    You are a braver (and probably happier) man than I, as you really seem to enjoy flipping.

    Nice post.

    Not sure if you like the offerings from Chris Ward, but he came out with a new Trident in 38mm. Seems like he made some nice changes, especially the hour hand.
