Hello, all. Long time reader, new member here. I want to see what you guys think about something I am looking at doing. I'm in my late twenties and I have been collecting obsessively for two years now, going through many a Rolex, JLC, Omega, etc. But I haven't yet been able to acquire the piece I've wanted all along: an AP Royal Oak. As my collection sits now, I have a JLC Master Compressor Memovox 146.8.97/1, a Breguet Type XX Aeronavale, a JLC Reverso Grande Taille 270.8.07 (HAQ), an Omega GX6546 Seamaster in solid gold, and a few lesser Omegas, Long8nes, etc.
My question is this: have you long-time collectors regretted flipping or trading an entire well thought out collection for a single grail piece?
I think I would be happier with a Royal Oak 15400 or something similar as a daily driver than having the other pieces. I know that answers my own question, but what do those who have done this before think? Was it worth it? Because once you get that grail, you can always start adding again.
Thanks for any suggestions!
