    What watch have you let go of with a heavy heart

    I finally had to let go of my BFK with a heavy heart. As much as an enthusiast I am, I just couldn't afford having two divers in my collection. Plus it hasn't been getting enough wrist time lately. Thought I would share the last shots I took with it.

    Looking at the images again makes me think whether I made the right decision by letting it go. But I guess it's too late for grief now.

    My Stowa Exima was difficult to sell.

    I had trouble giving it enough wrist time, but it was difficult to sell knowing I wouldn't see another for sale for some time.

    Re: What watch have you let go of with a heavy heart

    I went back and forth over whether I should sell my Hamilton Intra-Matic. It wasn't getting the wrist time it deserved and I really really loved that watch but in the end i had to let it go so someone else could enjoy it.

    Re: What watch have you let go of with a heavy heart

    Hellbuster:
    My "heavy heart" watches were my 2 Hamilton RR Grade pocketwatches (no pics because they're in someone else's corral now)
    Carried Hamilton 992b for 12 years, Hamilton 950b for 10 years. When American RRs started approving quartz for operational
    use I bought a Bulova Accutron (one of the 1st models approved). But kept the 2 "Hammies" for contingency use.
    Dec 2015 I had a "Come to Jesus Moment" and realized I should flip em both. Sold em to a local vintage watch dealer/repairman.
    992b brought $600.00. 950b brought $1,000.00.
    Now I have a heavy heart (but a better bank balance) Nuthin is forever!!!!

    Carried those ole Hammies railroading for a zillion years it seems. Went thru some tight squeezes with em.Now they're gone gone

    My PO 2500. Just wasn't wearing it. I probably would have wore it more if I'd left it on a Hadley Roma.

    Man I miss that watch.

    Re: What watch have you let go of with a heavy heart

    I still struggle with the fact that I let the following 3 watches go due to my stupid rule of not having more then 1 watch a brand:
    1) Omega SMP ceramic blue
    2) Grand Seiko SBGV007
    3) Grand Seiko Spring Drive
    SBGA083

    There are a couple other that I had difficulty letting go but I think I am over them now.

    I loved this Zenith EP, but parted with it when I bought a new EP. Turned out to be a big mistake; I enjoyed this one more than my Pilot Big Date Special. Haven't been able to find one since at a decent price (they made far fewer of this dial in automatic than the HW version).
