Well, it is very strange and I am very curious if someone experiencing the same. It is hard to explain mainly because my English is not as good as I would like, but despite this I want to try it:
Sometimes when I am thinking about a new watch and I am dreaming how amazing it will be when I will have it finally on my wrist, something happens - I have a vision that I already have this watch and I am in some situation - for example I look at the watch when I am in the house of my parents and my mother is cooking a dinner and everything is fine...or I am riding a car on the weekend trip with my little son and it is a great time...or I am a little boy (mainly when it is a vintage watch) and it is a holiday and I am playing with my friends on the playground with this watch on the wrist. Do you understand, what I am writing about? I have a vision about this watch - this vision remains and it is connected with the watch even when I receive it - almost always it is a positive nostalgic vision from the past, but sometimes, mainly when it is a new modern model, I have even a vision about the future - that it will be great when I will have the watch, that everything will be easier. I hope someone knows what I am writing about. Do you have these visions sometimes too?
..few times in the past also I had a new watch for the first or second day and something bad happened that day - then I associated this with the watch and in the end I sold that watch because when I wore it again, I remembered that bad experience and I started hating that watch.
Strange..but I am curious if someone knows that...you can write even about particular situations - it will be very interesting I think
