    Feel like quitting

    I am fairly new to this hobby, less than a year, and almost feel like quitting. Tired of feeling like I am being looked down upon by “watch snobs”. Frustrating is an understatement.

    This response just confirms this is not a hobby for me.

    perhaps the fact that watches have transitioned from timekeeping devices to "wrist bling" that become even more desirable as the prices are artificially launched into the stratosphere.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with affordable watches. A good watch is ultimately one that makes YOU happy. There is generally a hell of a lot more honesty in a sub-$500 watch than a watch over $1000.

    Sounds more like you are adverse to forum mannerisms, cheekiness, and conduct. IMHO watchuseek is a mild mannered forum.

    Looked down upon for what reason? The brands you like? The price of watches you can afford?

    There are snobs in pretty much any hobby that involves material goods. Cars, bicycles, motorcycles, boats, fishing... That's why there are enthusiasts niches In most hobbies. Why this forum has dedicated areas for affordable watches, fashion watches, quartz watches, and several dedicated to particular brands. There's no right or wrong way to enjoy watches or watch collecting. Ignore the haters.

    I think any watch enthusiast has to understand that there is different levels to this hobby. There are good people and their are less professional people. I have came across some weirdos but I have to say have met many more honorable people many of which I can call friends.

    There is a strong presence in the Russian, Affordables, HAQ, Chinese, and Vintage forums that embrace the sub $500 collections.

    F2 (public) and Dive watch forums tend to gravitate to the more expensive collections.

    Nothing wrong with any approach, but as with this and any forum, people will be blunt and talk about what 'they' like.
