    Never Part with It?

    Some people like to buy and sell. Their tastes change or they don't seem to get too attached to things. I'm kind of the opposite in that it pains me to sell anything off even if I don't wear it. I guess I'm just a hoarder at heart.

    I have quite a few that will never leave my collection. My Sinn U1 comes to mind as well as my Dornbluth 99.0, Doxa 600t, Ocean7 LM-1, UTS 500, Stowa Prodiver and some iteration of the Blackwater.

    What are the ones in your collection that you will never part with?
    Rotating on my wrist this month: Stowa Blue WatchTime Flieger, Sinn EZM9, Sinn T1, Sinn 556 Blue, Stowa Antea LE Polish Forums, Stowa Verus 40, Damasko DS30 greenie, Sinn U1, Stowa Antea Klassik KS Rose, Nomos Tangente Silvercut

    Re: Never Part with It?

    I am the same way... I dont want to sell off any of them even though I could do without a few of them, and I could use the $ towards bigger and newer purchases.

    So far the ones I wont part with for sure.. TSAR, Citizen Nighthawk in black ion, Swiss Army Chronopro, ESQ Beacon, and my Citizen Calibre 9000.

    It was VERY hard to come up with that short list.... very very hard.

    Cars or Watches... that is the question!

    Keep them forever and let the next generation worry about disposal. Here are two of mine from a while back.

    Gallet I received on Christmas 1959.





    Rolex I bought in 1968 as a reward to myself for passing an important exam.
    Yes the price was $215.00 plus tax, The price went up $15.00 from the time I ordered it till receipt.

    Re: Never Part with It?

    I have collected and traded/sold a lot of watches. I now have a collection that is almost just right. When the Omega SM120, the 2 Ploprofs and the SM200 return from Bienne I am sure I will keep all of those excepting one of the Ploprofs. The Certina and the Favre Leuba are also not going anwhere.

    I don't know how long it will last, but my collection is just right.
    2DARK Hardwood Watch Boxes are the real deal
