    How many of you kicked yourself for this.

    Ok I want to know if any of you guy's and girls have ever regretted not buying the watch you wanted the 1st time around? I've been there a few times now I'm not saying I don't like what I have but I will admit I should of bought what I was aiming for. Last month I bought this Citizen Eco Drive World Timer, But I was also looking at this Citizen 2100 Eco Drive Chronograph. I also wanted a World Timer that displayed all the timezones at a glance, But also liked the 2100 as well. I believe the 2100 was only $ 100 more then the World Timer but decided to save up for it next time, But Now I wish I could bring it back and get the other watch instead, But can't because I'm over do in the return date. Before you ask no it was not an impulse buy I've been looking at both watches for a long time.

    Here's the watch I bought.




    Here's the watch I really wanted.

    Yes this has happened to me.

    I ended up in a very long term flip that cost me alot of money.

    ALWAYS buy what you want, even if it means buying nothing until you have the money or have the piece in front of you. Never settle.

    Well, I am kicking myself for buying what I wanted when I had the chance to buy it.


    Back in March we went to Orlando & I swung by the Torneau outlet & they had a great LE Oris 1945 Flight Timer (Which I love), which I'm sure I could of negotiated a good price for. My wife had just bought me an Oris F1 for X-mas, so I decided I'd wait a little, but the more I think of it the more I regret not jumping on it.

    I don't have that problem -- every decision that I have ever made has been precisely calibrated and perfectly executed.

    P.S. Yeah, right!
