  • Big sell off

    to be followed by a big buy up, I hope.

    Over the course of the next month or so I will be putting these ones up for sale. Anyone have an interest let me know.

    Good luck on the sale, Keith. That's quite a group. Seems like all of those should go pretty quickly.
    Are you picking up anything special?

      I have some ideas. Just needed a change and figured I might as well go all out.

          All but one out of my league - I can't imagine letting any of them go. But it's like that old saying... "Show me a beautiful woman, and I'll show you a guy that's sick of her."

            Wow Keith, there isn't one of those that I wouldn't care to try. But with lots of unexpected expenses this year and two in college, I'm so broke I can't afford to pay attention.

              Wow, nice ones. It does however make me glad that I am content where I am. Don't have to worry about "where to go from here", here in your case being a place with rarther rarified air. Good luck with both the selloff anf whatever you move on too.

                Gotta say I'm surprised to see a couple of those on the block! But you're into real estate money here.... Good luck with 'em!

                    I agree with Tyler about being surprised about some of them going on the block. I guess the most is the JLC as it is a rare-ish bird I think.
                    Good luck with the sales.

                      I just had a hard look at a) how much I had tied up in watches and did it make sense b)which ones do I wear most and c) can I still read the dial and tell the time with 52 year old eyes that need reading glasses. Some might go because I can't easily read it (Daytona) some because it is too pretty and i don't want to damage it (JLC) or that I just want a change.

                        Funny you mention the Daytona.... that is the reason I rarely if ever buy a chrono any more. I can't read the damn thing, no matter how incredible it looks!

                          Hi Keith, am interested in knowing more about your Jaeger and Blancpain. Still have box and paper?
                          How much are you asking for each of this? Drop me more detail at wwwbobbyw@gmail.com please. Thanks.

                            I'm with you, Keith. I'm going to be doing the same again this year; already sold 4 or 5 watches in 2012 and have not purchased any replacements. A couple of nice watches in my collection is good enough for me. I'm actually finding I prefer my cheaper/less expensive watches more then my expensive ones.

                              My problem too, though with Zeniths and Heuers, not Rolexes. This is why I love the Lemania 5100's central chrono hand. Absolutely legible.

                              Good luck selling those fine pieces, Keith! I need to get rid of some of my own (less-spectacular) watches.
