    Any NON-Wis watch collectors?

    Pretty sure I fall into this category.
    I love watches, but I am not a WIS.
    Let me explain.
    I care to have a nice branded watch, and that it is aesthetic, and that is all.
    I don't really care much if the specific watch has a history (its definitely cool when it does), I don't care much about the movement (as long as it is an auto). As long as the watch sings to me, and I can afford it, I will buy it.

    I have watches that a true WIS may not buy, but I love them a lot.
    Pam48. Not an in-house movement.
    Hublot Classic Fusion.
    Bvlgari Diagno.

    I care about aesthetics the most. And I want a watch that has a good brand. The rest are secondary to me.

    Am I the only one here?

    My diagnosis is:
    Watch lover, bordering on WIS spectrum.

    I think you're a WIS whether you like it or not.

    I have a friend who has a dozen or so different Timex watches that he likes to wear and collect. He likes the different styles but doesn't care much about watch history or how prestigious a brand may be. I'd call him a collector but not a WIS
