Has your attitude or feelings about watches changed over the time you've been in this hobby?
As an example when I first got into watches I placed quite a bit of importance on accuracy. Over time I started to worry less and less about absolute accuracy and instead started to use it as more of a tool to evaluate the health of my watches. Erratic accuracy and falling amplitude is a symptom, accuracy alone became a curiosity.
I also stopped obsessing over every ding and scratch. I learned very early on in this hobby that the difference between a new pristine watch and a scuffed one is about one week on the wrist. Now, if I happen to clip a doorknob with my watch, I give it a quick glance to make sure the crystal is intact and then carry on with my life. There was a time where I’d take it off and go over it with a loupe surveying the possible damage, not anymore
