So I was culling my browser bookmarks yesterday and I started clicking each of the online retailer pages of the watches that I seriously considered buying but for some reason I didnít.
Then I realized how my taste had evolved and felt so glad I didnít jump the gun on some of my earlier choices.
To be clear, this post is not intended to bash certain brands or particular models. As I said, itís more about changing tastes and styles, maybe how getting older influences our choices, or even how the value of certain models have gone really soft.
For example, I saw the Seiko orange monster and breathed a sigh of relief that I didnít get one because it would have looked massive on my wrist. The other one is the Rolex Explore II polar - same reason. Still another is the Speedy reduced - some of its design cues like the Arabic numeral minute markers clutter the dial IMO.
Apologies if this topic has been discussed before. My quick search didnít yield anything, or maybe I didnít use the right keywords.
