The Mrs says one more
 
1 Attachment(s)
As you can see I have one opening left in my watch roll and the Mrs says Iím done but my math says two more as I figure I can fill the last pocket and then get one more for the wrist to wear and when I take that one off to put a new one on my watch roll will always be full.

I was slow to get into watches but have managed to get several this past year

Very nice. Iím sure you have figured this out but this is what happens next.

1. You fill the roll and get another for the wrist

2.You spot another and then buy a bigger roll or box

3.You then want to fill the bigger box/roll and scramble to do so
You then realise you bought a lot of ďfillerĒ watches and start to flip them realising all along the smaller roll was just fine

4. Now you have 5 heavy hitters and another on the wrist
You convince yourself you need a dress watch and regret selling the bigger box/roll

5. You secretly long for the first watch you bought and flipped, buy it again at an inflated price and then remember why you sold it.

6. You know have 10 watches for only 7 days in a week, your hobby is out of control.
You have a bigger watch roll/box than you every imagined and spend a fortune on a safe in which to fit it.

7. You now trade everything for A PM selection you convince yourself that 5 is really enough

8. Lange release a new Datograph, itís $120k and itís just stupid money but you justify to
Yourself that you have pretty much broken even on the hobby after some early losses and explain to the wife itís an investment.

9. She disagrees and files for divorce

10. You sell all your watches to pay for the divorce, buy a citizen dive watch and a canvas watch roll and slowly build up again


:rofl:

Ok, maybe exclude the divorce part

Enjoy

OMG a lot of what you said I have already thought of, I look at watches all the time now. I seem to go overboard on what ever hobby I am doing at a time, I collected pristine firearms from WW1 till current and then became obsessed reloading for each firearm then I got into road bikes and bought a fiber frame bike and trained for the MS150 and rode in that then I started collecting and using straight razors and leather strops and lastly I seem to have now gotten into watches but the watch hobby is slow going as my pockets are not nearly deep enough

Sounds about right! The good news is that divorce can be good for the soul, and as with watches, always good to get an opportunity to upgrade!
