    With food, gas, & clothing prices at an all time high has it effected your watch buying.

    It probably depends how much the current state of the economy has affected each collector individually. I've slowed down my purchases primarily because there haven't been that many new releases as of late.

    I'll keep this thread open provided the discussion doesn't devolve to far into the political realm (people tend to get pretty testy when that subject is invoked).
    Lots of dive watches.

    FULL STEAM AHEAD! I'm in an industry that isn't affected by the economy as much as others, and since the deals are out there in spades I'm on the prowl. Wait 'til you see my next few incomings vintage fans! I went deep on a couple - a solo homer on a vintage Omega and a grand slam that I won't talk about until I receive it.

    YES, I like JDM watches and with the Yen high and the dollar low it has slowed me way down. To the point were I've purchased my first domestic USA Seiko, if FedEx can ever

    I am holding back on my next purchase, because I am waiting to see after basel world. The economy is taking a toll on me, I have to sell a watch to get a new one. I have a new rule, if I can't pay with cash, I will need to save up until I can buy it. No more credit purchases for me.

    Oh ho ho! A little superstition creeping in after all?


    The increasingly flaccid United States peso is killing me. That said, I expect these watches to hold value much better than that selfsame currency, so I remain on the prowl.

    I just had my kitchen renovated. That killed my watch budget for at least a year.

    Gold watch will be useful when someone's still running the printing machine...
