    I obsess over everything I am into, meaning I like golf, I obsess (geek) over my clubs. I love guitar, I obsess over my guitars and equipment. I think that that's normal but I am a watch geek. Years ago a girl I was dating noticed I liked my citizen, she thought my ex bought it for me so he parents owned a jewelry store and she bought me a Rolex. I started collecting watches since and get excited about everyone I get. In my office it is hypnotic with the winders rhythmically humming.

    Jaeger-LeCoultre Power Reserve I like this one for the open back, just seeing the movement lets you realize just how spectacular real swift movement watches really are. Fuck these quartz.

    I picked this one up in an estate auction. It isn't working and I need to get it repaired. It is as far as I have been able to find out a 1920 Rolex Telemetre Chronometre.

    Schmoopy has wasted more money on drugs. I still have the watches and I can always sell them.

    I'm wearing a Victorianox Swiss Army now, not photographed.

    Your keyboard looks amazingly clear, focused, and colorful!
    What are those blurry things?

    Nice watches though. :thumbup2: I love watches myself, but nowhere near that degree. I usually forget to wear mine nowadays. :shucks:

    Wearing a watch is becoming a lost art.


    Now, for the important question. Which arm do you wear it on. ? :bigthink

    I take my watch off after drinking and forget where I put it. :facepalm: Leading to mornings when I have to wonder if I still own a watch. :shucks:

    I'm right handed so I wear my watch on my left arm. I wear a watch from the moment I get out of the shower until I go to bed. Women like watches to where subconsciously they will be attracted to a man wearing a watch, it tells them subconsciously that the man is powerful and punctual. At least that's what I read. Also ALWAYS where on during a job interview. Always.
