  • Keepers?

    I’ve described watches as “keepers” only to sell/trade them weeks or months later. Right now I have six (soon to be seven) and I seriously consider four of them to be keepers.

    Eterna is my favorite brand and I really don’t see anything that would bring me to sell either of these.

    The Tudor Ranger is one that I have owned twice. Now that it has been discontinued I don’t see how I could let it go.

    My fourth keeper is not necessarily special but I really like it. It’s the Anonimo Nautilo. I have had issues with this watch and this defies common sense but I have sold my problematic example at a discount and purchased a new example of the same watch.

    Any other keepers or potential keepers out there?

    Great choices. I have always like that Super Kontiki.

      Love the Kontiki Chrono and, of course, all the others too! I can see why those are keepers. Here's my list of keepers - some are beaters - some really inexpensive too, but these are the one's I will not likely ever sell.
