    I’ve never regretted selling a watch nearly as much as missing the opportunity to buy one.

    Haven't flipped one yet but I am definitely having a hard time thinking about selling any one of my watches. I am eyeing a few additional pieces though haha

    GMT Master, two-tone. Still a bit blingy for my personal taste but a helluva watch!

    The only flipping regret I have had is the money I lost! Hah.

    Orient Millennium. Great looking affordable (now discontinued!) that I should have kept.

    I'll never have a watch that I regret flipping, I never sell.

    However I do regret a little bit on not buying the Explorer 1016 when the prices were still reasonable.

    I can see how you regret selling those four beauts but it has never happened to me. Mainly because I’m a chronic hoarder and have never yet flipped a watch.

    Re: Greatest Flipping Regrets

    Nothing really, I usually flip watches i don't wear that often and hence I don't think about them much once gone. That said I do miss my Baume Riviera chronograph that I sold years ago, it was such a unique watch and I wish I had kept it.
