    Watches Worn in a Day

    I'm curious, my intrest in vintage watches is fairly new, I've found that I often wear three differnt watches in a day and sometime four. Is it common to wear multiple watches in a day or is it a phase you go through. My daughter thinks it's weird.

    I may wear two or three different watches in a day, especially during the weekend. It depends on what I do and what I wear.

    I usually wear a cheap quartz watch during the day so damage isn't an issue, and then only one vintage in the evening. But 3 or 4 has been known.

    Yes, you are. But our kind of weird.


    Sometimes I take 2 to work and swap back & forth. Once in a while on a day off I may go through 4 or 5 that have been neglected. Usually it's one watch a day though, and I only wear a particular watch on consecutive days if it's a new arrival.

    Interestion question

    As some of you, I usually change 2 times/day (with no particular order: recent/vintage , vintage/vintage, vintage/recent) and only if it´s a new adquisition I wear it for a few consecutive days.
    Sundays are devoted exclusively to wear the new/recent ones


    It is mandatory !! as part of my religious duties )

    It's reassuring knowing I'm not alone. The only thing that my watches have in common is that they're interesting to me. With seven vintage and two modern watches I can rotate them a bit.

    that is part of the joy of having a watch collection, you can pick and choose at will! I'd love to have a different watch for every day of the year, and at my current rate, I might just get there....lol

    Re: Watches Worn in a Day

    I always have five or ten watches out and ready to strap on. And I have been known to change multiple times a day. But sometimes I find myself becoming infatuated with one specific one and wearing it for several days... like the IWC Da Vinci I have been wearing since Friday
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
