This ought to be a fun (?) topic!
Share your biggest BONEHEAD move in your personal illustrious career as a collector of fine timepieces!
The watch you sold and hated doing it a week later....
The SPECTACULAR deal you missed out on.....
The watch you HAD to have and it just sucked heinously irl....
That fake Patek you bought on the 'Bay
The watch you bought and saw available for half what you paid a month later....etc., etc..
We've all done it at some point, (you new guys/gals will sooner or later btw.).
I'll start with 2.
A while back I jumped at the chance to buy a GORGEOUS and pristine Omega Speedy, white gold bezel, alot like this'n:
At a really good price.
Well it was before I gave in to bi-focals and the sub-dials looked like mud and I hated that it didn't "hack".
I figured I could "flip" it and make a decent profit.
I barely broke even in the end and I REALLY wish I'd kept it!
More recently I bought a Citizen EcoZilla, which I really liked the looks of and it was just TOO big all round and high on the wrist.
My "EcoDoorknob" disaster.....
So what's your biggest regret/mistake (so far)?
