I'll be honest, it has never mattered to me what people have thought about my watches. I tend to lean towards the unique and somewhat vintage. I would like to think that no 2 watches in my collection look the same. I don't care if anyone thinks my watches are "...ugly or cool...". But thank you for your opinion. In my old age, I have found that if what I do or have isn't someone else's cup of tea I don't worry about it. As my saying says below, "...life is too important to take it seriously...".
