I have come across numerous threads and members touting their collection of watches on here, which one to get next. People wishing they could skim their collection down to just one watch or several. There are many desired pieces and understandably why one would want more then one.
My question is, was watch collecting always this extensive? Back in the say 60s, 70s or earlier or later was there a community of collectors that had a collection in quantity to what many have today? If no, did people value the limited collection they had more?
Interested to hear some of the responses, guess I'm turning to some of the more "seasoned" members haha
