    I was wearing my SKX007 on a STAIB bracelet when my third son was born. Not flipping it ever!

    Now tell me YOUR story.

    I've proven to be exactly the opposite, there's nothing in my daily lineup that's sacrosanct. You want it? Send an offer...

    Re: Not a GRAIL but I値l NEVER flip it!

    My now retired GW-300 because it Time Memo壇 my son痴 birth to the second



    And my Seiko OM SKX781 because it was my first mechanical watch



    The rest are up for grabs although I REALLY like my Oceanus and don稚 see it ever going + if I get a Speedy Pro that will be safe too.

    Re: Not a GRAIL but I値l NEVER flip it!

    Pretty much every time I declare one as a "keeper," I end up flipping it about 4-5 days later. It can still be love, but not the forever kind of love. Personally, I do much better at long distance relationships. Pics and specs can be sexy as hell, but once it shows up at my doorstep ... well ... familiarity breeds contempt, right? I do have a few "can't sell" watches and three are gifts from my wife. They are keepers out of fear, not love.

    Re: Not a GRAIL but I値l NEVER flip it!

    I wore my Great White down to Florida when I visited my granddaughter.





    As is too often the case, I traded the watch towards something else.


    Saw the above picture a couple of years ago and regretted the move.



    Won't make that mistake again.

    I'll never flip my sarb017.
    1. it's not that much money to deal with flipping.
    2 it's honestly one of the most versatile watches I own.
    3. Design is so unique, funky and cool

    Was wearing my BLNR when I proposed to my wife, and then when we got married in April of this year. I will NEVER sell this watch!
