Seems to me people on the forums either buy quickly and decisively or they're more analytical and deliberate.
I see lots of folks with a hair trigger when it comes to buying watches. You know these folks, they're always the first to buy new releases. Gotta love'em since they're frequently the ones that buy new watches and they're the ones who post real world pictures and impressions of new releases. If it doesn't work out, they move it on. I assume they spend a good bit of time taking pictures and selling watches.
For me, I'm definitely the deliberate type. Research the watch, movement, look at real world pictures, ask for impressions from owners, weigh the pros and cons, consider where in my collection a watch would fit, sleep on it, look at upcoming releases to see if something on the horizon suits my needs more, etc. I find the journey and contemplation very enjoyable. I also don't have the spare time to take good pictures and post sales ads, so there's that.
Which one are you?
