Agreed. Plus, this leaves the door open to add a watch if you see something you can't live without.

Cognitive dissonance. I imagine shopping in an average American supermarket must be just as bewildering as having too many watches; aisles full of a hundred different variants of a product, how do you choose? It must have been easier for our caveman ancestors.

"What's that fruit?"
"Berries. It's all I could find."
"I don't like berries."
"Eat it or die."

So much simpler.

Good point Ulysses----though I must admit, I have a much easier time making a quick decision on what I will order from the menu of a nice restaurant than I do deciding which watch to wear on a given day.

If you click on this today, you'll see this week's Sunday Run offering. Interesting...is Invicta toning things down? This looks conservative. It's a 47MM case, which isn't over the top either. Nothing crazy. I wonder if they're reconsidering their "Most bling for the buck" strategy? Perhaps the trend of wearing an alarm clock on your wrist is in the rearview mirror?

Angelo, depending upon the week the Sunday Run changes. As I write this its a rather absurd looking orange Akula Reserve with a 52mm bezel.

Jeff, I agree about your post. Unfortunately no one's been biting on the various watches I have for sale on Ebay. It seems that Seiko don't move as quickly as Invicta, which surprised me.

For a month or two now I've been holding steady with my small rotation of Orients (two Revolvers, one Saturation Diver) and the Seiko Sumo. Occasionally I'll mix something else in, but for the most part I only wear those four. I'm getting to the point, though, where I might start mixing it up again.

I had some eBay duds also with the Seiko sale attempts. I may give one to a friend who hit hard times and just started a finance job. Rotating 4 really great watches sounds very appealing to me. But every now and then I like to sport an Invicta, just to shake things up. Perhaps I was too rigid in thinking I was leaving the "Invicta religion" and joining the "Tool Diver religion." One can wear different hats, or watches, as it were.

I have a black Nixon watch----that I replaced the band on----went with an orange silicon band. It's a Summer watch. I have to get a new battery for it and might do that this week. I haven't worn it in probably a year and a half----once the battery died. I have some watches with dead batteries---nice ones----that get a rest while I wear others. It's a rotation.

I hear you, Jeff. I've only got three Invictas left and I can't see myself wearing any of them, but I have had a twinge or two about my mid-size SAS and Capsule that I sold. I don't really miss them, but if I were to have kept one or two Invictas those would have been them...but hey, they helped pay for the Saturation Diver.

I'm wearing my Seiko solar SSC015 right now and enjoying it - I don't wear chronographs often and they do have their own appeal. Its on the "secondary rotation;" in a given week I probably wear my "Big Four" once or twice each, and then a "guest appearance" once a week or so from one of my other watches. Keeps things fresh.

Its crazy to think I haven't bought a watch since March. I occasionally have the whisperings of a hankering, but nothing really calls to me now.

I was tempted to pick up a couple of Invicta Sting Rays but decided not to because more than likely I'd hardly wear them.
