“Quality” versus quantity – a theoretical question?


Recommended Posts

I have been down many collecting routes and have learnt that for me quality trumps quantity every time.

 

If I were to aquire £6000 for watches now I would buy a single piece.

If I were without a collection I would spend £5500 on one watch and £500  on another.

After thinking more about this, I think it's more of a both thing. I mean why not? I want to reduce my collection, I really do, but the reality is that there's just so many quality pieces available that I want. So it's both, they are not mutually exclusive.

Ohh yes, a greater quantity of greater quality is ideal.

We have had a number of threads recently that focus on people’s buying habits. Recognising that we are all at different stages in this journey, and that many of us have different aspirations and budgets, I thought I would pose this question.

Supposing you were given a reasonably substantial sum of money (let’s say £6000 as a ballpark figure) with the condition that you had to spend it on a watch or watches. How would you go about it? Would you buy half a dozen reasonably good, midpriced watches, would you spend half of it on one watch and the rest on two or three others, or would you put it all on one special watch? Equally, you could of course buy 30 watches for £200 each. It’s up to you.

At the stage I find myself in at the moment, I would definitely be looking at Option Three. I have in the past received a couple of bequests and have bought special memento watches out of the funds, but there were obviously never any conditions attached. And I think I would probably be looking at the pre-owned market nowadays for something of really extraordinary quality. If I’m going to buy a watch at all from here on in, it will need to be something pretty special.

As I said, completely theoretical. What do you think?

A couple of 'nice' watches and a load of others.
