Why do you think those watches weren't worn enough----if they are not your most expensive watches? I understand the concept of buying a Grail watch (or even radio) then being "afraid" to wear it or use it. You go to the worker bees more often---the ones that you don't care if they get a little wear and tear on them. After all, they aren't your dream watch and they didn't cost the most. But in your case, wasn't the Tuna more expensive? And you give that one wrist time. What is it about these that leaves them on the bench? I notice that I have "occasion" watches, like my Movado. But I'm not concerned that I shouldn't wear it. I just find that if I'm going to something dressy (wedding, some business meetings) that watch is a nice touch. For the most part, I try to give good use to most of what I have.

Things are always changing, tastes change. It could be that in six months you're talking about the same thing, but its your OSD and Tuna that are up for sale. I doubt it, but you never know (I've had my OSD for a year now, and wear it and like it as much as ever - so maybe some watches DO stick).

The Sumo is an anomaly, in a way. I find that I love it for a few days and don't want to wear anything else, then won't wear it for a month or two and consider selling it. I don't get it. I do know that if/when I do sell it, if I end up re-buying it I'll get a "Blumo" to better justify it.

Your SKA427 seems like a great everyday watch for you, a baseline. Other watches could be moods and modifications. Of course if, in a month from now, you're still only wearing the SKA427, maybe you can sell everything else and take your wife on a romantic getaway.
