Hello, and welcome to this week’s episode of Fratello Talks. This topic is familiar to all those who spend enough time around watches and especially to those who consider themselves collectors. Buying, selling, and trading watches comes with the territory, and though a decision may seem solid at the time you make it, you may always regret it. In this week’s episode, Nacho, RJ, and Morgan discuss keeping regrets to a minimum when buying, selling, or trading watches and offer advice in doing so. But is it possible to avoid regrets altogether? Before we answer that, let’s take a look at what’s on the guys’ wrists this week.

Omega Seamaster Professional 300M no regrets

We begin with Morgan, who we are happy to still have around for a couple more episodes before his departure to warmer climates. Today, he’s wearing a watch that he’s sure to get plenty of use out of down on Reunion Island. It’s his Omega Seamaster Professional 300M (reference 2531.80.00).

RJ is wearing his 1991 Rolex Day-Date in 18K yellow gold (reference 18238). It’s a watch from his year of birth (give or take 14 years) that has further cemented his healthy obsession with solid-gold watches. The Day-Date is a classic with which you simply cannot go wrong.

Finally, Nacho is wearing his trusty 1993 Seiko 7002. As he mentions in the episode, this watch was featured in his first article on Fratello. It is one he won’t part ways with anytime soon as doing so would almost certainly not be free of regret.

It’s safe to say that anyone who gets deep enough into watches to have a collection will experience the ebbs and flows that come with it. And though this means that most of us will almost certainly experience some feelings of regret over past decisions, the ideal would still be, like Mr. Sinatra, to have too few to mention. There is no clear guide on how to achieve this. Today, the guys decided to share some of their experiences and advice they would give those at an earlier stage in the journey. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just getting started, be sure to tune in. There are sure to be some useful insights for you in this chat.
