The remark: I believe that as you become older, you be taught what you actually like, and also you additionally lose a few of the ‘pack following’ mentality that it is simple to fall into. In my twenties and early 30s I wished to expertise each kind of watch, so I purchased and offered rather a lot, however I purchased issues that typically I did not actually cease and assume ‘do I actually like this look ahead to what it’s, or do I would like it as a result of it is what everybody else needs’. I purchased a 6265 Daytona as a result of the chance got here up, and it was ‘scorching’, however I did not really actually prefer it that a lot and stored it for barely a yr, after which after a couple of extra buys/sells I realised that I simply do not actually like chronographs, or I purchased a Lange that I really liked as an object, however it simply did not swimsuit my life-style and I did not put on it. As of late I am pleased with the 4-5 watches in my assortment that swimsuit my life-style, and I put on steadily. I’ve extra of a ‘been there, completed that’ feeling, and have labored by means of the accumulating errors. The opposite issue is that as you become older, your duties and wealth normally improve, and you turn from a easy “can I afford to purchase this?” calculation, to a “do I wish to allocate this amount of cash to this?”, and over time you would possibly merely have extra vital issues to allocate sources to. As a 40-year-old, my thought course of now’s ‘properly I may spend $10k on one other watch, or I may have an additional household trip, or improve the children faculty fund, or have some superb expertise.’ In Mark’s case, I am positive he may preserve most of his watches, get extra exterior funding, improve leverage and so forth…however has realized that these are simply objects, and whereas they’re objects that now we have an emotional connection to, there are different issues which can be merely extra vital and improve life satisfaction. – fadedlume
