    Have you ever worn a watch and seen someone you don't like w/the same watch and stopped wearing it?

    Hey all,

    Just as the title says, do you have a watch you love but when seeing someone you don't care for wearing the same watch stopped wearing yours?. It hasn't happened to me with watches yet only with some other things so I was wondering if it has happened to anyone else.

    Not to this point. I rarely run into people wearing any kind of mechanical watch, so I don't find it likely to happen until I own something more ubiquitous.

    No, but I did try on a Patek and then find out it was one of Saddam's. That was an "odd" feeling...

    seen someone you don't like


    I tend to avoid and not see people I don't like, so I'm unlikely to see them, never mind any watch they might be wearing

    Don't think so. While I'm all for wearing pre-owned watches, and don't tend to think about who the previous owner may have been, there's just something not quite right to me about that one.

    "Hey, nice watch"

    "Thanks, guess who it used to belong to?"

    Hypothetical conversation of course - we all know normal people don't notice watches!

    I should be pretty safe as long as I don't spot a TAG or Omega or Rolex or Panerai or IWC.
