    Up to Rolex back down to Sinn/Oris??

    Have a couple friends that recently decided to sell off their Rolex collections and stick to mid tier. They aren't worried about brand prestige or showing off, they just say they enjoy their Sinn and Oris type watches more. It seems a bit odd to me but I can understand bonding with certain pieces over others.

    Anybody else gone through the same type of thing? Reach a grail or higher level then end up gravitating back down?

    There are a lot concern about brand awareness and prestige. Your friend maybe minority.

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I like all levels of watches but can't see myself just saying "nothing higher than mid tier". I like shiny objects lol

    Rolex is mid tier.

    It is perfectly acceptable to buy a Rolex and then decide to sell it off in favor of a more diverse and affordable collection.

    EDIT: I think about adding a Sinn constantly, despite having three watches at the Rolex price point.

    I went from Rolex/Cartier/Panerai to Seiko/Magrette/Christopher Ward and now have consolidated my collection around Omega. Will never go back to affordable, but to each his/her own. Buy what you like and enjoy them!

    Yes, because the only reason one would get a Rolex is to show off.

    But to answer your point - I atlas wouldn't be able to downgrade to have a collection of mostly Rolex/Sinn/Oris. I like the variety and workmanship that the higher end brands have.

    It seems a bit odd to me, too. Being that most all Rolex owners I know go upmarket, keep theirs, or may lose interest in wearing -- I have never known anyone to sell them all off and buy a Sinn/Oris.

    Let's see some pics of these friends' Rolex collections and the Oris and Sinn "Replacements".

    WUS community is always interested in knowing what others replace a Rolex with in threads such as this. Specifically. And we like the pics.

    Lol exactly! I'll ask them to send over some pics. One friend sold off his Polar, Sub and DJ 41 to stick with an Aquis Regulateur and Stowa Klassik 365. I mean no disrespect to those brands but just seems weird. Maybe he just needs the money, who knows.
