Default Love it or List it....{6306 content}

I've recently found myself in a bit of a dilemma and thought I'd put this out to the forum to help me make my decision.

Now, normally, this would be an easy choice..but I've found myself particularly drawn to this one in spite of the fact that it's "just a watch"..as my wife would say while rolling her eyes.

So, here's the watch, a 6306 from 1979...with an amazing Ghost insert...any help regarding what to do would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Mike

Ask yourself "If I sold this watch, would I regret it? Would I go out and buy it back?" If no, then sell it and use the funds for something else. Take into account your other watches you enjoy wearing ... would you really, really miss this one?

Chances are you will sell it, miss it a little bit, then move on to something else and forget about it ....

So, is that a vote for "List it" Michael?

And, Jon, your "Love it" vote is duly noted.

Keep it! That’s a really cool 6306 with that evenly ghosted insert. I would have a hard time parting with that one, specially if I like it. it would depend on what else is in the workings, and if it helps to sacrifice. In the past, I’ve sold a few pieces i liked to fund others, but then regretted some of the moves...

If you sell it, you will be filled with self loathing and regret.

You know my vote already, Mike. Love it.

But if there’s any hesitation on your part, you could send it to me for care and safekeeping. If you miss it, I’ll send it back. If not, well, I’ll just keep it ....
