It's been almost one year since I dove head first into this addiction called watches. Looking back, I've made some great choices and some equally bad ones. Unfortunately the more I look at vintage watches these days, the more I become hesitant to buy modern ones. To find the same level of excellent quality/craftsmanship seen in mid to high level vintage watches, one would have to venture into a MUCH higher price bracket in today's markets. Seems almost like a losing battle, we continue to pay more and more for less returns. After reading Ray MacDonald's recent thread on "The Elephant in the Room", I asked a watchmaker what he thought would be a worthwhile purchase in today's modern luxury market and he literally said NOTHING, it's all overpriced bull-doodle and once you buy into it, the big watch conglomerates will have you by the bullocks. Harsh words but it got me thinking for sure. My love for watches hasn't diminished the slightest from the day I bought my first watch but I am finding it harder and harder to justify the next purchase. I know it's silly to ask this question to a bunch of enablers, but have any of you ever thought about quitting?
