    Poll: AW owners -- will you sell your regular watches?

    - I haven't worn my other watches and won't miss 'em

    - I'll keep some special watches around

    - Heavens, no! I'll keep them all!

    - I didn't always wear watches before, but the AW has me so hooked on the idea of a wristwatch, I'll buy more watches.

    Posting a poll thanks to ronaldheld's idea:

    Speaking for myself --

    I won't be selling most of my watches whether I had the AW or not, because most of them are either gifts or heirlooms.

    Of the ones you see here, though, at least two are having their statuses reviewed. The Garmin 410 gives more data, but data is the only thing it has over my AW; in every other way, it falls behind. I use it on my bike, but even then, I don't pay much attention to the data it's gathered. I would sell either the entire package including the bicycle sensors or sell just the watch and its non-bluetooth HR strap.

    The other non-keeper is the 6th generation iPod Nano. It's a great little iPod, and I still use it quite often (I haven't made the leap to bluetooth headphones), but it's not a good wristwatch-y gadget -- it's not waterproof, and you have to press a button for the time display. I could imagine hanging onto it until I sell my iPad 2, then I'd include it as a bundle since they both use the old 30-pin connector. BUT, it's really my wife's, and she hasn't said a word about saying goodbye to it.

    If I could say whether I'd buy more regular watches, well, probably NOT. I'd buy more straps for the AW before I'd spend good money on another watch. One of the few reasons I would wear my other watches is to have something different on my wrist. Swapping straps -- and bracelets -- onto my AW gets the same effect, and I wouldn't have to miss the extra functions.

    Re: Poll: AW owners -- will you sell your regular watches?

    I have an analog, date-only Timex Expedition that I was using as a weekend watch; it is now “on loan” to my mother. I also have an Easy Reader and a pair of Weekender chronos that I am not selling simply because I bought them because I like them. Ditto my Seiko 5.

    I’ve always liked watches and never stopped myself from buying them. That said, the AW makes me want different watches; am currently after G-Shocks and an MDV106 which never used to be on my radar yet are sportier than the AW. Also, I have been telling myself, for a long time, that I need a real dress watch but, to be honest with myself, the AW Hermès will take care of that nicely.

    Looks like I was beaten to create this thread. Not owning an AW(yet) I suspect after I do, that I might not do a large sell off but trim some of the watches that might go unworn.

    I ended up selling all my g-shocks and citizen CTQ57. I never used them. I might buy another watch but I don't know yet.

    Re: Poll: AW owners -- will you sell your regular watches?

    I loosely voted keep my favorite few because they ROCK....and they do! I've sold a lot of watches since I got my Apple Watch and haven't looked back.

    My G-Shocks are all versions I have kept over the years because they are just my favorites, except the King may go, I was using it for size comparisons for videos, no personal attachment. I may replace that and a Pathfinder with a Mudman GW-9300 JDM version for camping.

    The Citizen and Seiko Kinetic were gifts from my wife, the Movado I wore when I got married.

    The Seiko V701 was an heirloom, the Velatura was for my 40th birthday and a 20 year personal accomplishment.

    The Tag Link was a watch I had wanted for many years and got a deal I could not refuse....perfect timing.

    I said loosely voted because I recently accomplished a long term goal set a looooong time ago that I had the Omega Seamaster Ceramics the prize. Admittedly, it has unseated the Apple Watch the last few weeks. I have been using the Apple Watch for sleeping and exercise for now. I still have phantom taps and look for the weather on my wrist lol. I am really looking forward to WatchOS 3.

    I'm in the camp of keeping a few good/sentimental traditional watches. It's good to get a break from the AW every once in a while (or in my case, in the evenings).

    Re: Poll: AW owners -- will you sell your regular watches?

    I've owned the AW for about two weeks now...it has made a profound impact on me as to how I now view my other watches.

    The vintage Seiko divers and chronos will certainly stay....likewise the large G-Shock collection...(I have some pretty cool older models)...however some of the "fringe" watches may be at risk....you know, the one's you just like owning...but hardly ever wear?

    I'm not about to do anything reckless....but the gears are grinding upstairs. :)

    No I won't. My current collection are all these and I feel there's no need to replace/sell any of them.

    Thanks! I used to have a couple more G-Shocks but I streamlined them to just these few and all are atomic. I also had a couple of Swatches but are faulty except for one see-through Irony automatic which I gave to my wife, since her quartz Titus' battery became flat.
