I was just going through my Flickr feed and was looking at some of the watches that I no longer own. Left me wondering if there is one (or more) watch that you totally regret selling? 

For me it was this Squale 1521. Sadly I needed the money at the time of selling it but I would definitely get another in a heartbeat! :sadwalk:

I had the same Squale but moved it on because the crown was a bit of a struggle for old hands.I sold my Sinn 556a ,regretted it almost instantly ,I suspect it will be replaced.

Mr F ... This thread is very spooky! - I had to reboot my Flickr account to start posting pics here after a "hiatus" (?) - It was quite depressing looking at pics of some of the beautiful watches I owned back then - Here are just a few (the tip of a very large iceberg!) ... Paul :whistle:

Of the Oris or the Omega? - Actually it makes no difference as I can't remember! - I remember buying the Oris from Australia & at just under a grand, it was squeaky bum time until it arrived "under the radar" of HMC&E (& more importantly, SWMBO!)

Owned this twice, still miss it.

Both of these, mostly because they have more than doubled in value!!

I also regret selling this Omega Speedmaster MkII with the racing dial, I had it full restored by STS, it was immacualte

And to complete my Omega hat-trick of misery this Seamaster 300 made from NOS parts

Quite painful in retrospect :(

I haven't missed any of mine yet that I sold, but I regret giving my Squale 200m chrono to my son - now I run and really need a weatherproof chrono, it's the only one I have owned with a sweep minutes recorder too, instead of on a sub-dial that I can't read!

I like to think if I didn't post this topic of discussion you may not have pulled the trigger and got another one mate... You're welcome... :laugh:

Over the years I've probably owned 100's of watches. I've taken photos of most, though probably not all, of them so I'm going to try & tot up roughly how many I have owned. I do know that the watch that started me off on this particular hobby/obsession was a Seiko 6105 150m diver. I bought this off Ebay from Watchco Australia, it was a bit lived in but all original so I wish I still had this. I did keep it for a good few years but eventually sold it. A regret due to its originality & the fact that all original examples are quite hard to find now & expensive. According to the photos I have, this had a back engraved with B. Davenport 1977 - does anyone on here have it? I don't want to buy it back just know that it's still going OK 

Other regrettable sales include a lovely Ocean 7 (one of the first micro-brands I think), a Japy Aquatique (gorgeous thing & very quirky, especially the crown & the fact that you could remove the movement from the case, the idea being you'd put it into another case & change the look/function of the watch completely i.e. from a divers watch to a dress watch), a Citizen Mission Antarctica (one of two quartz watches I regret selling - the other being a yellow dial Japy Terrestre. The Citizen had been in storage for ages & didn't actually work that well. take note eco-drive owners & don't store these watch for long periods in the dark!) & a Glycine Lagunare (big, beautiful & fantastic watch & one I still look for, occasionally, on Ebay in the hope that I'll find a bargain). There are, without a shadow of a doubt, many many more but that'll do for now :thumbs_up:
