Hello WUS, new member here. I'll give a quick background story and ask for a little advice. I'll post a few pics of my small collection while I'm at it. I've always been someone who wears watches. Starting from a kid with Casio, then moving to Fossil and other $100 brands. But I always just had one at a time. Fast forward to now: I recently graduated from college and started my actual career a few months ago. I decided that I would get myself a Swiss made watch as a sort of graduation gift to myself. So I started searching around, watching video reviews, looking for deals and such and found a Tissot that I liked. So I ordered a quartz PRS200... and once it came from UPS I decided I didn't want to wear my fancy new watch to work. All the searching and research I had done lately definitely had me interested in watches and also had me curious about automatics. Then I ordered an Orient Mako as a work watch. And I saw a deal on a cheaper Citizen on eBay that I jumped on.
The three of those happened over just the past few weeks. Now I'm looking at Hamiltons, I'd like to get a Steinhart Ocean1, a Tissot auto, and a few less expensive brands too. I'd just like to get a small collection going. I know these watches are considered low price to a lot of you (I'm shocked at some of your watch budgets), but the fact is I'm a little bit of a cheapskate, and honestly I don't even wear watches that much. If I'm lounging around the house on a day off, I'm not wearing a watch, and I'm a little bit of a home body. I don't wear them to the gym, and I wouldn't want to wear a good watch to work until it already has some wear.
I'm sure some of you enthusiasts have been in similar situations, wanting more watches than you can reasonably wear. How do you deal with your watch problems? haha
