I notice mine have. When I didn't know anything about watches, I figured a large-face quartz chronograph was the best way to go.
And even during my piqued interest in the world of automatics, I never bothered to check the type of movement, quality, accuracy, shock resistance, etc.
But as it stands now...
I'm finding a newfound love for more normal sized watches, and even a love for watches that may be slightly undersized by today's standards (like the Rolex Air King, Seamaster mid-size).
Watches that don't have huge bezels, and can sit on your wrist without looking too flashy but being amazing watches, ala the Rolex Explorer (not the II, the regular black explorer).
I'm also getting into leather on a watch when I used to like only bracelets.
I'd say my tastes are refining but I'm sure they'll change even more.
Have your tastes refined or changed in any way?
