I came a across this link and thought that it summed up my interest in vintage watches very well.

Perhaps they should get a new watch.
I think that a watch that shows us the impermanence of life through its own slow decay as it measures time, is a thing of art, truth, beauty and philosophy. This article sums up how I feel about the vintageness of vintage watches........
