Who else needs an Intervention????

There's no hope! I was fine for many years (I had things under control)

Then I joined TRF......

A month ago, I bought an 18K/SS GMT IIc BNIB, two weeks ago, a 16610LV BNIB and Friday, G-d help me, a Sea Dweller BNIB.....

And now, I want a killer 1675 Coke AND Pepsi, along with a new SubC.....

I was going to flip my 18K/SS Daytona with the Zenith Movement, but after having it serviced, it looked so damn good, I couldn't do it. Thankfully, I was able to let go an Explorer II Sunday........

I seriously need an intervention!

Who else needs one???? Share you addiction stories!!!

(Inspired by "So many watches, not nearly enough money") Now, I'm gonna sit back and hear from my fellow addicts!! Show some pics of your addiction as well!!

hahahaha...there is no cure (congrats on really nice collection though).
The only way I've found to dampen the obsession is to stay away from places like this. Winter is a bad time for me and watches.

Now that is good advice from one of our Rolex sellers.

The only interim cure is to find someone worse than yourself. Then you will feel a little better. That's what I'm doing.......

What a nice problem you have - I will have to show my wife this thread so she won't think I have been "bad" in the recent months anymore.

I need an intervention. I bought a GMTIIC TT, a DSSD, and a PAM 161 in four months. My wife says I can't visit TRF anymore. Gotta go, I hear her coming now!
