So the Ninja Tuna 035 didn't even last a week? What were the reasons for capture and release?

You must get the MM300. It's time to end the angst and just man-up and get it. Sell one of the remaining Tunas and experience Tier 4 bliss for the first time. If that doesn't do it for, replacing a new generation Tuna is easily done.

want an MM300 or a used Bretling. I hear you about Tier 4 bliss. I've had Tier 4 Bliss once. It was the Citizen Grand Touring. I doubt I'll sell the Tunas. I really love them. The black one was so-so. I didn't totally love it.

It's a quandary to say the least. You've been stuck on Seiko for many of your watch purchases (not all, but many) for so long----I wonder if you'd somehow be let down by the Bretling?

herculodge

The more I think about it, the more I don't like Breitling. My favorite watch is the Seiko SBEX003, a 48mm beast that costs 5K. I'd have to sell everything to partially fund it. I'd be scared to put all my eggs in one basket.

Sounds like it would be one egg in the basket and I think it would be a regrettable move----but that's me. I'm overflowing with watches, radios and more----my house is a mess and that's a bad extreme too. But definitely, going from collector of several dozen, down to collector of a dozen, down to collector of less than 10----selling off and buying one----big, big risk if that watch turned out to be anything less than an MVP grand slam.

I've been thinking about this for a while, but the one thing I don't like about the Tuna design is the tiny lugs. If I were Seiko, i'd go lugless or have big fat honking Oris-sized lugs.

I prefer the modern hand-style of the SBBN033, personally. The trouble is, the fewer watches you have left the more magnified their importance becomes in your mind. When you're down to the last few, parting with any of them becomes painful.

I've been distracted of late; watches no longer occupy too many of my thoughts. The constant tedium of getting hyped about something then realising you have to hold back really stresses me out to the point where i'm refusing to play the game any more, or at least not for a while. There are more important things for me to sort out first. I might just get a nice bracelet for one of my existing pieces.

I've settled at a happy medium of 8 watches. One is a beater. The others are rotated once a week.

Ulysses, if you are free from watches and consumerism, more power to you. When I want some good lugs, I wear my Orient Saturation Diver or my Sumo.
