Within the last few days I've been buying again. I go browsing, I see something that I think I can't live without and have to have it. I find the money from somewhere (and not to the detriment of other things in life), but my self discipline is suspect!

So my question is, do you have a set budget per month that you allocate for watch stuff, and stick rigidly to it.........or do you just go for it when you spot something and balance the books later?

I stick to saving 3% of my income as my watch fund. That includes tools and servicing. It's worked for me so far and I barely notice the 3% dent in my pay packet.

I will be the first to admit I have no self control when I spot a unusual Seiko on eBay or one selling for a price well under market value. I purposely do not keep track of how much I spend because I would probably kick myself in the rear end for spending that much! I do have a nice saving account but I have to keep reminding myself there are other things that might happen in life when you might need t=some of that money in an emergency. My wife passed many years ago so I don't have anyone to nag me and keep me in line.
