I recently bought several watches which I've wanted to get for a few years. While sizing the bracelet on one it dawned on me that although these watches had been on my "list" for several years, I had never actually seen them in the flesh before buying them. It also dawned on me that this is the situation for the vast majority of watches I own, or seek to own. Of course being biased to vintage watches has allot to do with this, but I find I do this even with current watches.
How about you folks?
