    I would not want to be defined by them. Watches are just a hobby, and one of many.

    Nerd = small green alien who sits at a desk wearing a huge dive watch far to big for his arm, working out how many seconds it has gained or lost in the last year!! Avoided by all the other aliens in the spaceship in case he bores three of their eight arses off about watches.

    Haute = Something very high and tight.

    Poser = A person who wears a gold watch with jewels all over hanging out of his sleeve, on his arm clad in a silver track suit, which is hanging out of his Lamborghini Aventador which is “Wrapped” in a gold foil colour, and has red wheels.

    Define me = Piss taking old wrinkly Brit counting down the days till he gets his pension and escapes the non stop rain in the UK.

    Oh and loves Panerai, and drives a Ford Fiesta “Wrapped” in Bronze colour, with blue wheels, to match this......

    Define Nerd, Haute, and Poser in Regards to Watches?

    I think pictures can usually say it better than I can.

    Watch Nerd:



    Haute Horology:


    Poser:

    I’ll add this to the Poser definition:
    Anyone who has nicer watches than I do!
    (I took all the pics from the meme thread)

    Yeah.

    I define others, and they define me, whether we like it or not. Right or wrong, who gives a flying crap? I sure as hell don't. Feel kind of icky even writing this...

    The only definition I can think of is for the poser category where one might compare a low-mid level watch (say eterna) and think it is as good or better than some established luxury band (just pulling one out here but let's say rolex as an example)
    EnderW and Orisginal like this.
    a - b = sissy watch

    Where
    a = watch
    b = pushers

    A watch Nerd is someone who is interested in watches enough to participate on watch forums.

    Haute in regards to watches would be whats considered classy or upscale at that point in time.

    A Poser is someone who does not wear the watch they want in an attempt to impress others.

    I'm a watch nerd with no Haute what so ever and could not strike a pose even if I wanted too.
