My biggest fear...

My biggest fear is that if I die first, my wife sells my watches for what I told her I paid for them....

HAHA! This is great! I say, always take 30% off the price, then split that number in half. Then knock a few hundred off that for good measure and see what she says

True story: In 2014 I traded an in Omega Seamaster for a D-Series 16710 Pepsi (with B + P), and between the trade-in value and the cash that I brought with me, I was $200 short (total came to $5500). So I put the balance on the credit card. When my wife saw the amount come through on the bill she was appalled at how much I spent on the watch, and told me the next time I want to spend that large amount of money on a watch, we will need to have a serious conversation ahead of time. I assured her that I will definitely do that, and she was relieved that I would not do something like this again before giving her the opportunity to talk me out of it.

The good thing is if she sell them at a auction house, at least she will believe you are a hell of a businessman.
