Watch Nirvana

Jan 25, 2019,05:06 AM

After 20+ years and losing count how many quality watches I have bought and sold with ebay and Chrono24, I have finally reached my nirvana and freedom at last smile

  1. Breguet Type XXI for the summer and normal everyday wear.
  2. Breguet Marine 3400BA for the winter and evening wear.

Many times I have decided enough is enough and then......something has caught my eye and I’m back in the game. I expect you will be too. Regards Kev.

Wow. I envy you your peace of mind!

Now, how do I attain such Zen state of mind?

My escape

If I knew I would bottle it and sell it for a fortune. I have been tempted by collectible diving watches, pilot watches, dress watches from IWC, VC, JLC and Omega and there was always just one more that I needed. I guess I am worn out now and need to rest... 

You would make billions, that's certain.

But that vintage Marine is wonderful. Congratulations on your choices and freedom, but there is always a price for freedom .

Happy Times

Yes, it does feel great and above all I feel satisfied with closure. In future wherever and whenever I am looking at the time, it will be on one of my Breguet watches; one of, if not the finest and important Watch Houses.

Wish you were here

Thank you for all your kind comments, I wonder if this is how retirement feels? I truly hope one day you guys will join me. God bless you all.

I haven't reached nirvana yet

I totally feel your terrific choice of watches

Interesting criteria

 By: Uncle Chico : January 25th, 2019-13:47
I have similar guidelines for selecting timepieces. I generally choose what to buy and wear based on the event and attire. The Breguet 5207 is for what I refer to as informal dress occasions the 3800 for casual attire. I have a Rolex Cellini Time Only wit... 

Very nice pair, Uncle! [nt]

Interesting comment

Personally I enjoy this forum too much to leave it This may sound mad but I have always be envious of work colleagues who were happy with wearing just one high quality watch all the time and could resist marketing ploys to buy more ! Not any more, I have ... 

On top of my actual 2, I would have two more on my definite list actually, a Breguet 5907 and a geophysic true second.

Then a Reverso moon phase for my romantic side and a pilot to be used as tool watch. Like you, I don't like so much number: 6 would do Best, É.
