    It always seems like watch people are also photography people!

    I seem to have noticed that a lot of people who are into watches also seem to be into photography as well. Maybe it's because they want to showcase their watches in the best way possible???? IDK just a guess

    You have an interesting supposition. I had not thought of it, but you just may be onto something. I know that I like both watches and photography and enjoy taking pics of my watches.

    How about showing us some pics of some of your watches.

    I think it makes sense. I became interested in Photography after being a WIS.
    It is nice to better photograph watches, but being able to better photograph anything is nice.
    Right now I am waiting on a 50mm f/1.1 lens for that sweet Bokeh effect.

    Re: It always seems like watch people are also photography people!

    I started with being into photography before being into watches which stemmed from my Dad’s photography love.

    For me it’s in the composition of a perfect image. Clearly, stuff I post here isn’t perfect, and rarely anything else is either. But it’s the pursuit of perfection that I’m constantly chasing.

    Which probably ties into great watch making. There are many great watchmakers that produce beautiful timepieces. You can see their efforts to produce perfection. You can see their efforts to “compose” the perfect watch where the sum of all the parts have a meaning beyond just the individual components.

    Probably a little deeper than you were looking for, but I guess I just like a nice watch and happen to like photography too.

    Makes sense. Both are complex machines. Require accuracy and amazing craftsmanship. Both are highly visual too, photos because, well, photos, not necessarily the camera itself. And watches because we all love looking at them haha

    Photography seems to relax a lot of people! I picked it up for fun and have been becoming addicted.

    Has more to do with confirmation bias as well as socio economic class.
    People who are into watches tend to have a bit more disposable income than average.

    I’ve also seen plenty of photographers who aren’t into watches.

    Just joined. Watch person. Photography person.

    Also, it seems to me that mechanical watch lovers go for vintage looking cameras, if not full-retro “real-thing” darkroom photography. Makes sense, too.

    Alas I have never experienced dark room photography. Perhaps there will be a VR game in the future...
