  1. My practice is it’s ok to LOVE a watch and not purchase. I appreciate it from afar. Maybe I take a few months and if I still feel the same, and nothing better has come along, then I buy it! But most often I find a better watch and the entire process starts again ???? – Aaron

  2. I have the 58 925 the heritage andfxd mn21 the mn 21 is a mind blowing the lume is incredible the dail is stunning looks like the insides are white mints just beautiful

  3. As always, a top notch video Teddy. Definitely keep up with these Q&A videos.

  4. teddy is that a snowflake on your wrist? would love if you showed your wrist at the start of each video

  5. Lolololololololololololololololol watch collections hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  6. I think you have too many when watches you love aren't getting wrist time.

  7. My big issue with tudor is that they don't just update the whole lineup with the t-fit clasps. The fact that I can pay $400 for a zelos and get micro adjustment, but can't get it on the $4000 tudor I want is a little annoying to me. Also the fact that it's only present on their 38mm watches. Only toolless micro adjustment available on a larger watch is the pelagos, which is a great watch, but titanium isn't my preference.

  8. You are right about taking your time. I definitely jumped in a bit too fast. I feel very fortunate, and I love my watches, but spending that much in such a short time, it does put a toll on my mind. The downturn in the market last year really gave me a lot of stress, juggling between losses in the stock market and paying for my other living expenses. Watches afterall should be something happy to enjoy, but sometimes the FOMO can get to you. It's hard to say no to an SA. you never know will they give you another chance later.

  9. My collection is a constant ebb and flow. I'm currently holding around 30+ pieces, all on the inexpensive end of the market, my highest value pieces being Orient, Citizen, and Seiko. I've found that I'm too nervous wearing anything of greater value, for fear of damaging or losing it. I like my watches relatively pristine. That being said, there are always new and exciting things to drool over and consider. Everything I'm currently interested in is put on a ranked buy list, where it may stay for days, weeks, or even years while I consider each one and shop around for the best price. Many pieces eventually drop off the list because after the initial infatuation I see something that doesn't quite match my aesthetic or ergonomic expectations. I have to ask myself, what aesthetic/emotional need does this particular watch fill, how close does it come to the goal, and is this just a stopgap until the more perfect piece comes along? I also ask my wife and daughters for their opinions, and they always point out things I don't initially see. Even so, I sometimes pay the literal price for an impulse buy, and either return an item immediately, or resell after a few wears. I lose a bit of money, but maybe learn a good lesson about my wants and what I'm willing to deal with. (My most recent lesson: no butterfly clasps, no pins and collars, especially on a watch that is not conducive to an aftermarket bracelet or strap.) On the other side of the equation, pieces that I bought a few years or even more than a decade ago I will eventually resell, gift, or (gasp) throw away if it's no longer working and not worth the cost to repair. That's led to a few sad retirements, but in the end, I remind myself that they are just things.

  10. I love the Q&A videos. It really gives me insight of the watch world and community.

  11. The brand getting involved is like Ferrari Classique, where you pay more to get that car, but it’s all certified, so provenance is enhanced and resale strengthened. I would pay more for that

  12. Do any of you actually worry about your watch being stolen off your arm?
    This thought has never crossed my mind.

  13. Request for you to tell us what watch your wearing in the video. Your a stylish man and it’s good to know which watch you select based on your outfit.

  14. Tudor def needs to include other watch hands… they had other handsets other than the snowflake.

  15. I love Tudor. I don’t want to spend or wait on a Rolex – but like their design so can just buy a Rolex design from Tudor. Any Tudor.
