    Question Why Are You Here (Why Do You Want to Own Nice Watches)?

    I was reading "A Blog to Read" and ran across the author's pretty well thought out post answering the titular question.
    Top Reasons You Want A Nice (Expensive) Watch

    I own "nice" watches because they're a channel for self-expression. Fashion accessorizing aside, I believe the type(s) of watches one wears speaks to what characteristics you enjoy and value.

    Any thoughts?

    Otherwise, I wear the watches I do because I think that they say something about the way I view myself: squared away, masculine, attentive to detail. If I only cared about the time, I would look at my phone.

    I appreciate quality. I like to think I can buy the best quality I can afford. Very few people I know think this about watches but I do. i kind of like that they follow you on your life journey. I am not a Jewellery type of guy so for me a nice watch is the only other way to express myself appearance wise apart from the clothes I wear.

    Well, in answer to "why are you here?"; it's because nobody else gives a crap (about watches).

    Because free stuff is popular in this joint. That, and regular people think I'm nuts so forums let me hang out with other similarly afflicted loons.
