Making mistakes is often credited as the best way to learn, but in the case of watch collecting your mistakes can be both emotionally and financially draining. Buying a replica watch us that you either soon or eventually live to regret is painful, and even if you sell it then you might take a loss. But, if you can listen to advice then you may be able to avoid these mistakes altogether. Here are the 3 luxury replica watches you’ll regret buying.
The fad regret
Hype is a more powerful tool than ever before, especially with short-form entertainment like TikTok managing to expose audiences to way more instances of advertising. The next big release can often feel like it’s going to change the world, or maybe it promises to fill a hole in your collection which you didn’t know you had. All of these emotions can easily be mistaken for excitement centred on the replica watch itself, when really it’s just the zeitgeist sweeping people up. Before you buy a new top super clone watch that’s getting a lot of media attention, be sure to question that it’s something you really want, especially if you’re going to have to pay above the RRP.
The budget-blower regret
Window shopping whether online or brick-and-mortar has the uncanny ability to make you forget what your bank statements look like, and that can be simultaneously thrilling and dangerous. Even if you are fully aware of your finances, the idea of putting a luxury copy watch-sized hole in your savings can actually make it seem like a more exciting idea. You may talk yourself into it, saying it’s an investment or that it makes you feel special, but try to keep a level head. An expensive high quality replica watches purchase can definitely be a thrill, but that enjoyment should stem from the fact that you can actually afford something extravagant. If you find yourself in an emergency, with car troubles, or even something simple like a surprise utility bill, then having to sell the Swiss movement copy watch you had recklessly bought will only add to your pain.
The rebound regret
Buyer’s remorse is bad, but seller’s remorse stays with you for a much longer time. I personally haven’t forgiven myself when I had a Swiss made replica Cartier Pasha which I had truly loved, but thought I was trading up to a Tank Basculante. I made the sale, bought the Cartier Tank fake for sale, and realised within a month that I’d made a mistake. If you find yourself in this situation and you’re unable to buy the watch back like I was, the immediate temptation is to fill the hole with another copy watch altogether. Unfortunately, this can just make you miss the original watch more. Just like a breakup, it’s important to take some time to heal before jumping back into a commitment, lest you end up back on Chrono24 within a week.
