    We've all been there indeed

    This sounds like a very accurate transcript of lots of my watch related experiences...

    Think covid and lockdown will have meant alot more people buying 'sight unseen' so there'll be many who can relate to this article

    Been lucky, so far, only had two arrive that I just couldn't gel with from the start, and both were quite low cost...

    So far...

    I think that has happened to every watch I've bought in the last five years, bar the last two

    I have found it happened a lot when I first started and less often as I grow to understand my own tastes, learn from previous errors and am generally more careful on pulling the trigger.

    However, everything seems to be cyclical so I’m sure I’m due a few ‘catch and release’ purchases!

    It happens to us all at some point. Nothing to be ashamed of or write a blog post about though. I believe abstinence helps but personally I couldn’t keep it up.

    He missed the end of the story where having realised that you will miss that watch just a little bit, you go and buy one again a few months / years later and the cycle repeats...!
