Thread: Would you buy it again?

  1. #1

    Would you buy it again?

    I often think that the ultimate test of whether you like a watch, is to ask yourself whether you would buy it again. Obviously the answer changes depending a myriad of factors, including cost, current value, how long you've had it and what else is in the collection. It may be fun or helpful to post up the answers to your current collection. Here's mine:

    Watch Buy Again?
    Rolex Explorer Yes
    Rolex Submariner No
    Omega Speedmaster Yes
    Smiths PRS-29B Yes
    Seiko Turtle SRP779 Pepsi No
    Steinhart OVM Yes
    Seiko Shogun No
    Citizen Ray Mears 2 bn0118-04e Yes
    Citizen Pro BN0217-02E No
    Citizen BN0151-09L Yes
    GW-5000-1JF Yes
    GW-6900 Yes
    GW-S5600 Yes
    GD-350-8 Yes
    DW-5600HR Yes
    DW-5600MS No
    DW-5600-E Yes
    DW-5035-D Yes
    GA-835 Yes

    My noes surprisingly include my Sub which although a beautiful watch and possessing sentimental value is not one I wear regularly and when I do I quickly find it a little dull. I did stare at it for the first four years of ownership which may explain my familiarity with it. The Turtle and the Shogun have been superseded by the OVM and Citizen divers. The Citizen Pro BN0217-02E is one I still enjoy wearing but I prefer the Ray Mears for a tough go to quartz. Finally the 5600-MS is on the no list due to the poor visibility of the LCD.

    So what would you rebuy or not?

    I still have nearly all the watches I've ever bought, so not a question I've ever thought about. But a good thought exercise for the ones I have, say if they got lost or stolen.

    Rolex Explorer: Yes
    Smiths Everest: No
    Smiths PRS-68: No

    After the first 'yes', everything else for me is by default a 'no' (despite those two Time Factors being fine watches).

    Interesting idea for a thread!

    The ex-collection pieces:
    Sinn 103 : Yes, but a blasted case one
    Sinn 903 : Yes
    Steinhart OVM : No
    Seiko SKX : No

    Wasn't overly impressed with the finish on the hands of the Steinhart, in fact enough to put me off a Steinhart in future, and the SKX's I've had are built to a price, not a quality in my opinion!

  5. #5
    With the exception of a few cheaper odds and sods, YES.
    It's just a matter of time...

    What was it about the finish of the hands exactly that led to your disappointment?

    Like most of us here, I've re-bought watches that I've sold. But unless something big changes, the reasons for selling it the first time will be remembered, and the watch will get sold again.

    So, I'd certainly consider re-buying a Sinn UX, or EZM-1, or an Explorer, but the fact that I've sold these watches before mean that I'm likely to sell them again. I'm trying to remember this - it should save me time and money!

    There are not many that have disappointed me to an extent of not wanting to buy again. The stand out is Rolex Explorer.
    I know it is a forum favorite and I tried hard to like it but just wasn't for me.

    Of my 7 watches,

    Dreadnought PRS 21
    Precista PRS 50B,
    Smiths Everest (Original)
    Omega PO (2500)
    PAM 00118

    I wouldn't sell any of those, so rebuying wouldn't be an option

    I have an Omega Constellation Chronometer, a 1966 one, on beads of rice that I am thinking of getting serviced and giving to my daughter, and I wouldn't rebuy that, as though it is a beautiful watch is does wear very small

    My Tudor GMT, while a lovely watch, I wouldn't rebuy either

    Of the few I have sold I probably only miss my Speedmaster Mk 11 (original) and I do consider rebuying one of those

    Cheers

    Kevin

    I've owned four platinum dialed Yacht-Masters, selling three for various reasons. The fourth I've no intention of selling and wear it almost daily for a few years now.

    I have a Glycine Lagunare and whenever it's on the wrist, it get's a lot of attention. As I'm not an attention seeker, I'm not sure I'd buy one again.

    Tricky question. To my mind anything I have bought in the past I wanted at the time, but newer additions to the collection means that some get less wear and less love. E.g. I really wanted my PAM 346 when I bought it, but since getting my 720 and 721 it gets little wear. I have a dressy Cartier that I bought many years ago when I had no children, out every weekend, and wore a suit to work. Can't remember the last time I wore it. And most recently I picked up a 126660 JC, but it is very similar to my 116660, so should really have stuck with the original.
    Some gone that I don't miss, I had a 16610 which felt tinny, I never bonded with, BLNR that I quite liked but it felt small.
    So, buy again; 116660, 116660 JC, 126600, PAM 24, 243, 422, 587, 720, 721, Cartier roadster chrono. Not; 216570 polar, 116680, 126660 JC, 16610, 116710 BLNR, PAM 49, 231, 346, BPff, BB bronze, Cartier tank chronoflex.

    Of my current collection

    I'd buy all of them again

    - except for the Bremont - which I might try for a different model if I ever sold/lost.

    Down to seven now - and happy. Though as said before, I have an eye open from the new Breitling re-issue when it arrives this year.

    And, judging by your recent thread, you often have - even without selling the first one!

    Itís a question that really makes you think about your watches and, if the answer is no, should you sell it?

    Hereís mine

    GMT Master II. Yes
    Explorer II. No
    Picard chrono. Yes, if I could find one
    PD chrono. No
    Speedbird III. Yes
    G shock. Maybe

    SWMBO bought me the G shock because I wanted a solar atomic watch and itís a great beater but I really donít know if Iíd bother buying another.

    The need for change, for something fresh and new, seems to be basic to the hobby. To me, the interesting question is can you maintain an interest without changing stuff. The jury is out on that. I mean, how many guys on here have bought a watch in the last year....95% ?

    I think Qatar-wol nailed it for any I've sold in that I had a reason and that reason is unlikely to change ie they haven't worn well, lived up to expectations or I have tried them and time to move on. I'd buy a 14270 and a Sinn 856 again but primarily because they were versatile enough to stay on my wrist which was a nice change at the time but after the honeymoon period I refer to wanting some variety.

    For those I own, I'd buy about 60% again but I don't regret buying the other 40% and I'm in no rush to move them on. I'm currently pondering whether I can move from 16 to say 5 but which 5 is proving difficult (as many previous threads on here demonstrate!).

    I've made a point of not repeating myself, but never say never, if these came up at the right price, I'd be on it like a Scotch Bonnet.

    Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph 40mm
    Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph 39mm
    Zenith Chronomaster triple date with moon phase.
    Breitling Blackbird 40mm

    There are none that I have sold that I would buy again. Of those I have, I would certainly buy at least 50% again. I donít think I would be likely to buy many of the remainder again, as they never make the list of watches I would keep in a slimmed down collection.

    the high of unboxing fades a lot quicker than the time taken to earn the money for that watch. If this feeling is the end goal then the hobby is little more than retail therapy. It also takes lot longer to earn the money for a watch than the joy gained from a few mins of inboxing. There has to be other dimensions to it.

    I've been enjoying the hobby in other ways lately, such as tracking accuracy, cleaning what I have, trying new strap combinations. It all adds a new dimension to it, and gives me some fun using the watches I have.

    The forum here is also also a nice dimension to it, it's a great community, can share opinions without it getting too heated, get real views of watches I could never afford, and theres a lot of support and good will in the dragon.

    The only watch I sold that I would still like to have is the orange seiko sumo sbdc005.

    Depends on situation I guess. If I didn't own any of my current watches then I would 100% buy the same ones as I'm really happy with the collection. It's changed a fair bit over the years but I'm now really content with what I have and would be very hard to consider selling any of them.

    If I sold any of them though then no I doubt I would buy them again as I haven't done that with a single watch yet. If I sell something then chances are I've tired of it for some reason, so no point going out and buying another after.

    Once something is gone is gone, I have a few regrets over watches I've sold during tough times, but have never come close to rebuying them tbh. In that situation is rather look for something else I like than go back.

    There are definitely a few that I don't have due to various reasons over the years that I would now buy again if I could.

    • Rolex Sea Dweller 16600
    • Zenith Rainbow Flyback El Primero
    • TAG Heuer 2000 series - white dial
    • Breitling Avenger Seawolf Ti (2003)- black dial

    These all formed the basis of my watch hobby at different times since 1996 and so it would be very nice to have them in a collection again.

    Iím with Tetlee: never go back. Nostalgia does funny things to the mind and while there are a few watches which Iíve tried again, in general I find myself remembering why I sold them in the first place, and flipping them again in short order.

    The exception is my Mk2 Speedy, which is an epic watch that I dearly wish I still had.

    While the purchase, receipt and unboxing of a new watch is undoubtedly a high, for me, the ownership and making memories while wearing a watch and the subsequent recollection of those memories when putting it on is more of a driving force for me. Thus I tend to keep my watches.
    As to whether I'd buy them again if I somehow had to sell one or lost it? I'm not sure I would, it would seem like a 'fake' something that looked like the real thing but hadn't been through the experiences associated with it. I'd probably buy something from the same genre but different enough to stand on it's own.

  31. #31
    Omega white Seamaster GMT - don't know. After 12 years I found it too big and heavy. Rubber strap helped, but I sold it anyway.
    Omega Speedmaster - YES!
    Fortis Flieger - probably yes
    Omega De Ville GMT - yes
    Seiko Turtle - no, too big
    Hamilton GMT - no, too big
    Rolex Explorer II - I own currently and yes, I'd buy again.

    Not a big flipper, so the list is short:

    A couple of Seiko 6138/6139 chronos - experimented and found my favourite a 6138-3002. I still have an example so no need to try again.

    Seiko MarineMaster - I have a thread going on that. Currently undecided!

    Sinn 152 - enjoyed owning but its time in my hands was over.

    Panerai 233 - one of Panerai's finest. I was an odd one in finding the 1950 case super uncomfortable compared to the standard Luminor. Go figure, but wouldn't buy again.

    Panerai 183 - I sold to trade up to a 190. I still miss it, but I couldn't justify keeping it.

    Overall pretty happy with my sales! A lot of my 'cheaper' watches I tend to keep instead of moving on as I've not needed the cash, and they bring enough joy for the fleeting moments I do wear them!

    Same with my G collection, so far under 10 which is acceptable

    Omega PO, had it 6 years, love it and would buy again if lost.

    Omega SMP, 36 mm 1999 version, flipped. Didn't bond with it although I liked a lot of it.... I'd buy a slightly later one with applied indices and tighter end links.

    Steinhart Ocean one, 42mm. Nice but if I lost it I'd look at either a smaller version, or something else like a Seiko for the same money.

    A citizen eco drive I had for years.... Utterly battered by the end but then it lasted well for 2 decades nearly I guess. Great watches but not what I want just now so I'll say no, I wouldn't buy again (but wouldn't discourage others from considering)

    Yes
    16710
    Speedmaster

    Maybe
    Navitimer - great when basically my one watch, but date function is a pita when worn in rotation (very first world problem) so now seem to always pick speedy first.
    AT Annual Calendar - almost perfect, though slightly too thick for me.

    No
    Pam392 - good to try but panerai is not for me
    SKX009 - on indefinite loan to my brother
    Orient bambino
    Vintage gold omega dress watch, looks beautiful but feels too fragile to enjoy

    With the exception a few G-SHOCKs that I canít remember these are all of the watches I have owned over the last 10 years. Some have been a very quick catch and release and others have stuck around for months or years. An asterix denotes a watch owned more than once.

    I thought this might be a useful exercise to persuade me NOT to buy some of these watches again!

    Great thread...here's a few but lots more G shocks and other stuff that's been and gone...currently I have an old Tag SEL chrono (engagement pressie), an Oceanus S100, two Citizen Ray mears 2 (2018 edition), a GWM-5610 and a PMD56...quite happy with my lot but have a hankering for a GS quartz...as ever...

    G Shock MRG-7500 x2 Yes (rare and DLC lovliness, loved the dial)
    Casio Oceanus OCM-800 (lovely chrono and very comfy)
    Casio Oceanus OCW-S100 x2 Yes (currently have another , lovely, lovely thing)
    Casio G Shock GW-M5610 x3 Yes (big fat yes all day long)
    Casio G Shock G-5000 x3 NO (lovely but just too heavy for my needs as a digital)
    Rolex ND Sub Yes (although couldn’t get a comfy fit on bracelet)
    Rolex Explorer 2 YES(loved that watch)
    Rolex Explorer 36mm YES (foolishly thought it was too small and let it go, bah !)
    Grand Seiko SBGX061 x2 Yes (currently got a WTB for another !)
    Grand Seiko SBGX083 Yes (a bit bigger and rarer than the SBGX061...would have another back in a heartbeat but had to sell at the time)
    Citizen PMD56 x3 Yes (a definite yes, probably the best all rounder I’ve ever had)
    Citizen Ray Mears 2 2018 YES (brilliant daily wearer, in fact I managed to grab two in a sale)
    Citizen RM ltd edition NO (brilliant daily wearer and I didn’t mind the logo but the Ray mears 2 came along…)
    Citizen RM ltd edition Diver YES/NO (really nice watch but a bit too big for me and the internal date cyclops drove me mad)
    Stowa Flieger 40mm auto YES (very comfortable and incredibly accurate)
    Stowa Flieger 36mm auto NO (very comfortable, accurate but surprisingly illegible because of the size of the smaller hands..the second hand always got confused for the minuites hand...big shame)

    Are respondents listing watches they have let go, and saying whether they'd like to buy them back (or not); or are people listing the watches they have bought and kept and saying whether they'd do the same thing again?

    Hadnít thought that much on it ^^^
    My response a mixture of both...

    I will restrict to those I HAVE bought again.

    16570- didnít want to sell the first or the second, couldnít afford one now...

    PRS25- has three, keep coming back to the ideal size and look.

    Breitling A17040- actually re-bought my old watch without realising. Just love these old school Breitlings.

    Seiko Monster- has several incarnations, always hung on to the gen 1 BM.

    Speedy- had lots of different versions, would still have more.

    What a great thread, it's really got me thinking about my watches, especially the ones from the past.

    I'm not going to list all of them, mostly because I don't think I can remember them, but the only one that stands out as being potentially a regret spend and so I wouldn't buy again is the rectangular Zenith Port Royal. The watch is lovely, and I love Zenith as a brand, but I don't know what made me buy a rectangular one.

    Iíve sold three specific watches on here I thought about buying back at some point, then I thought I sold them for a reason. So no, Iíve moved on in my collection style and tastes.
