catch & release, or buyer's remorse?

No doubt, after amassing a certain amount of watches within your collection, you will accumulate your fair share of catch & release timepieces, or pieces in which you feel a fair amount of buyers remorse soon after purchasing or receiving your newest watch to honeymoon over.

The catch and release can be for any number of reasons; perhaps the piece just didn't sing to you the way you thought it would, as you drooled over it through advertisements or watch forum postings, as you awaited delivery, perhaps the case diameter ended-up playing too large or too small for your wrist size, or perhaps your better-half found out about yet another unauthorized box delivery. Whatever the case, as you continue to collect more timepieces, you will more-than-likely touch on one or more of the aforementioned reasons for returning or flipping a recently acquired timepiece.

Fear not, as there will be an eventual end-reward for your buyer's remorse. Some lucky fellow watch collector will be the beneficiary of your misfortune, or miscalculation in judgement, by getting a spectacular deal on the secondary sales market. You'll receive a little coin in your pocket in return, to put towards your next impulse buy.
