    How many times a year do strangers comment on your watch?

    For as cool as watches are, and as much as I feel something is missing when one is not on, most of society doesn't notice much less comment on them. Amazing to me that a $6 Timex and a $6K Rolex get same lack of interest? I might get a comment once every 2 years on my watch, and that is almost always from a WIS who recognizes a Vostok is not something you see every day in America.

    Very rarely. A work mate of mine asked me what color is my Rolex, I was wearing a Milgauss GV so it might turn black or green depending on the angle and lighting.

    She was wearing a blue TOG Rolex.

    On average, once or twice a year.

    I met my current wife discussing watches while standing in line for some hot dogs.

    Lol. No. Never.

    Re: How many times a year do strangers comment on your watch?

    The only time I ever get any comments on my watches from strangers is when I wear something rare at an AD or watch boutique. A watch like my Alain Silberstein Krono 2. If I wear a Rolex or Breitling to an AD, I might as well be wearing no watch at all.

    It's only happened to me a few times ever, and always by a fellow WIS.
