I seem to be going through a particularly intense period of watch research at the moment. Donít know why. But I feel I need one more watch to round the collection off. Not permanently of course, but for the time being. And hardly a day goes by when I donít come across yet another hitherto unknown watch brand, most of which I dismiss due to not liking the general design, or the price is out of my reach. And so I return to the same handful of brands that all tickle my fancy in some way. Currently I am in a vicious circle that is marked out by the likes of Seiko, Sinn, Christopher Ward, and one or two others. Round and round I go, model to model, make to make, budget to budget.
And occasionally I stop and realise Iím sick of looking at all of them. And I realise Iím overwhelmed by the sheer number of watches out there. Sometimes I feel this hobby is starting to take over my life. Iím spending time obsessing over some watch or other and should probably be spending that time with my family. Or generally doing something more productive.
And so I step away from it. I look at my current collection. It numbers about 12 watches. I like all of them. Why the hell do I want any more? And yet, after some quality time away from the laptop, back I go. Once again searching for that watch that has just the right X factor I apparently need and that apparently is not provided by any of the existing collection. Something keeps luring me back despite the unhealthy amount of time it gobbles up.
Here are some of the models currently slowly driving me round the bend:-
Not looking for any recommendations BTW, just that a thread with pictures is a happier thread.
