no tears goodbye.........well actually there is :) , theres only two that i regret letting go.......



my first modded 6309 7040 that was done by twickersdude...this really was a work of art.....Michael really did a great job on this...it had an all over beading that was flawless.....a NOS movement which ran like a dream.........something came up, and somebody offered me £280 for this......so it went....

second biggest regret is this...




a modded seiko sammy......again, this was another by twickers, and one of the nicest mods ive had....a slightly darker bead on this one, and again it was flawlessly done....michael also did a matching anvil bracelet to match this, and they looked awesome.........

so if i could get these two back....i would be a very happy man.............anyway....any of yours gone, and regretted?

I have trimmed down my collection considerably in the past month or so, and while I have had no regrets about some of those now departed watches, there are a couple I would not mind getting back.....


Junghans Mega 1000 digital radio controlled
Citizen Signature Collection Grand Complication.


We'll see. But for now I am very satisfied with my newly revamped collection. Higher quality pieces and less emphasis on quantity.

Regrets is something I try really hard not to dwell on. I try to justify it by telling myself that anything I've let go was because I didn't give it proper use or had another identical one to begins with.

Sadly the same doesn't apply to former girlfriends O0 .

I do like that modded Sammi, especially on the orange strap. Orange is not usually my thing, but that one sings to me!

Regrets... I've had a few. But then again, too few to mention. Well, that's how the song goes anyway. But I'll mention a few of mine. I miss 'em, but they went in order for me to pursue more expensive or more rare watches, so it's all OK in the end. Would I ever try to replace them? Maybe. There were some good watches cast overboard.

Non, je ne regrette rien............ well I do in reality, but as everyone is quoting lyrically, I thought I'd join in.

The one that I really regret letting go, was a late 60's Omega SM300, big triangle with baguette hands.

Ironically the guy that I sold it to would have Shawn spitting feathers at the merest mention of his name :mad: ............. and he was Strange Too :)) .
