    How to tell you just ran into a WIS at a stoplight.

    I am in my own little world, windows down, sunroof open, music blaring (AC/DC "Who Made Who) if I recall. I am in car that tends to get a lot of thumbs up, nice car, and other little comments.

    This.



    Which...If my wife asked, would say it is "Her" car. But anyway. I am sitting at the light and enjoying some music, in "My wife's" vintage, mint, weekend car. And a guy pulls up. Does a once over on the car...does a double take, looks down and my wrist hanging out the window and says..."Nice Hammy!"



    The light turns green, he goes left, I go straight, but it was certainly a cool 10 seconds. Try as I might, I was not able to see what he was sporting on his wrist.

    Anyway. That's my story and I am sticking to it!
    Time is relative.

    Ha ha cool story, I have had some random I counters with WIS. One guy was in a masters class of mine. I commented on his watch, he commented on mine and we skipped the rest of class, went to chilies, drank a couple beers and talked watches. If that isn't a bromance story I don't know what is lol. Hell that was about a year ago and we still chop it up from time to time.

    Haha nice! It's always fun to have watch encounters or chat watches in everyday life. It doesn't happen nearly enough.

    I was at the Pines restaurant in the Bronx, NY. I saw a guy in the entrance looking over a ceramic and steel Hublot brand new in the box. His friend bought it for him, his present watch was a Seiko chrono. He didn't know a lot about his new watch.
