Not knowing anything about Comex I fell down the rabbit hole looking it up. Very interesting. Can't wait to see pics.

@BostonHedonist How do you like the Lamy 2000? I'm currently using a Lamy Safari and Pilot Metropolitan. There's so much choice that becomes available when you're ready to drop 100-200$ on a FP!

 

EDIT* just noticed it's not a FP but a ballpoint.

 

You know, I bought the Lammy 2000 rollerball to be the easy-to-use less conspicuous partner to my Visconti Rembrandt medium point FP, for quick jotting on the go. I've only had it for about a week now, but I find myself reaching for it more often than I'd anticipated. In terms of hand feel, Macrolon polycarbonate is just a joy to hold and look at, loving the brushed texture.  The spring loaded clip is a nice feature and the sharp angles ad a nice modern industrial feel to complement the smooth and virtually seamless barrel.

 

Highly recommended!

Anyone have any recommendations for good buyers / online consigners? I have a Panerai that I'm looking to offload.

I know Stitchy is in the business. Not sure whether or not online.

 

I pretty much exclusively deal with http://davidsw.com/

YES - my original 'proper watch', still much loved, and on regular rotation. Great choice. Enjoy. :cheers:

Perhaps join a noted seller's site and sell it yourself. Even as a first time seller, there will be lots of local buyers in NYC and Hong Kong that would be willing to try a face to face deal. Don't think you will have a problem.

How do you go about choosing your next purchase? 

I have the money gathered and I'm about to purchase my next one. Thing is, I can't make a choice. Everytime I'm about to hit the "Add to cart" button, I'm hesitant. 

I have about 30 watches in my "wish list", from divers to pilot, and dressy to sporty. And my mind chances everyday, which leads me to never actually buying a damn watch.

#firstworldproblem.

Get hammered and then go online. This is what I do with purchases I've debated for a long time.

I use TimeZone and CWC (Canadian) mostly. Watchuseek is also often used. Others may chime in on some alternates, ie. Rolex Forums, Watchnet, etc.

Gentlemen, a question for you regarding purchasing a nice watch. Do you save up or set money aside before a big watch purchase ($2,000+)? I'd like to purchase a Rolex one day, but it just seems like such a massive purchase. I don't make that much, but it's a decent income.

I save up, yes. I don't buy any of my "hobby stuff" (shoes or watches) on credit.
