    Rolling eyes I am so weak!

    I suspect, I am not the only one here tho-who will read a post, see the watch and then google it, or go to your fav watch sellers sites and check out the price- shortlisting it nearly everytime?
    Come on- tell me I am not the only one Lol!!!!

    Shortlisting is a good thing to do....if you still want it in a few weeks, months - its on. Otherwise, it's not.

    Good point. After the initial buzz passes, you may not want it anymore.

    I wonder: How short should a short list be? Three? Five?

    Excellent advice! I've found this to be soooo true! Those impulse buys always seem to get flipped shortly after buying them! I've adopted your philosophy, and it WORKS!! (and has saved me many "flips"!!)

    Meanwhile, I get a watch from Naples, Italy in 42 hours, including transiting US Customs and snowbound Manhattan. Not gloating Explorerspirit, because I've been in your shoes before, but just illustrating how random and unfeeling are the watch collecting gods! There is no justice! Lay out the minefield for ol' Saint Nick. Rat Bastid!
