    My wife said I can buy whatever watch I want, BUT

    it just can't be something I've flipped in the past. Doesn't matter if I get a newer vintage or a different dial color. If the watch is X Brand Y Model and I've owned it before and got rid of it, I can't get it again.

    Seems pretty sensible now that I think about it, not sure why I didn't just implement this rule myself, would have saved me some needless flipping.

    RUN! IT'S A TRAP!!!

    It's not a bad idea, but tastes change and some times change back. Getting what you're excited about now is the important part, I think.

    Anyhow, if you're like me and you made an agreement you'd stick to it just on principle, but I'd still wonder if she'd notice what you got one way or the other.

    Re: My wife said I can buy whatever watch I want, BUT

    My wife also says "You can buy whatever watch you want, BUT..." and her caveat is "It has to be a reasonable price" but she refuses to reveal an exact upper limit dollar value. So I recently tested the waters with a watch purchase for around $700 and it didn't trip any alarms with her. I'm considering using the flipping option next. I've surveyed eBay for a couple of months and I have one automatic I don't like much anymore that's regularly being offered used on eBay at around $1000. But, of course, I don't know the actual selling prices. I'm thinking maybe I could capture a bid for $800-$900 for my old watch in an eBay flip, add what is "reasonable" for a watch in my wife's mind and end up with a little more expensive watch!

    If I had a dime for every time I heard that, I would be hip deep in Patek's now........

    Since she's letting you pick a different model from the same brand, you could always opt for the strap version (if you've owned the bracelet before) or vice versa.
    With many brands (e.g. Omega) the strap versions are a different model number than the bracelet numbers.
