    No Target for next watch: is this normal?

    I have been very active in buying this year. Acquired many pieces i have never thought I would spend that kind of money in my life on a watch. Now I just dont have anything I wanna buy. Do u guys experienced this before?

    I wanted to get a daytona, a yatchmaster but it all seems meaningless now. Passed by an AD and all that interest me now is the nautillus. However, its way beyond my budget now. What do u guys do?

    Well,it happened to me as well..after my Pam 92 and 441 (which is a bit like mini-grail) I kinda lost interest,until I tried the darth tuna which is a completely different watch...but my buying has slowed down considerably..

    Since last year I have my sight on Pam 368,but back then,the fund was needed for business-related purchase so yes the hobby has to be put on hold..and maybe next year or even the year after if I come across this model with good price,I'll pull the trigger (now the price has gone up,considering my local currency have lost around 25% of its value to US$ since last July)

    Something is wrong. Go and see a professional. If you don't get help soon you may have to surrender your WIS card.

    Yup, it gets tiring after successive purchases. Take a step back, enjoy your current pieces and wait for the next SIHH/Baselworld.

    2 things:

    1. You've acquired many pieces so it's possible you have enough to suit your needs

    2. You've set your sights on an expensive grail watch and anything less doesn't float your boat anymore

    Re: No Target for next watch: is this normal?

    I wouldn't worry about it. I think it's a sign of a healthier relationship with the hobby.

    When I see a watch that I like but is out of my budget, I treat it like anything else with that issue: Decide if saving up to purchase one is possible and logical and then make a choice. There are many watches outside of my purchasing range - just like there are cars and houses that I am not able to afford. It's OK.

    After a lot of watch buying in 2011 and 2012, I haven't bought one in 2013.
