    I have apparantly caught something...?!

    My first post, so please bear with me. 4 months ago I did not own a "real" watch (automatic/pricey) but my nephew by accident sparked an interest in obtaining a so-called "real" watch. So I did a lot of research and given my price range and my interest in getting something that would stand out, I bought my Vostok Europe expedition northpole and felt that was it... But oh no - shortly after that I discovered this forum and the micro brand divers - especially Helson and after some consideration I took the plunge and bought my sharkdiver. A truly fantastic watch and I was absolutely positive that that was it. So now I have "the" watch I was looking for, so how come I still look for other watches? I have come to the conclusion, that being interested in watches, means I will be on a never ending quest for the grail that I will never truly find... But hopefully I will find a lot of semi-grails in my search, with the help of this forum and the fantastic knowledge you guys posses and are willing to share. Keep up the very good work!

    Welcome to WUS! Based on your symptoms, I believe you have contracted chronic horomorbi. You would need to purchase multiple watches each year in order to keep the disease under control

    Curiosity killed the cat? :) It's the fascination of owning something unique.

    I also bought the Steinhart which is basically "the thing", but i still had to get myself the skeleton Sea-Gull M182SK and now i'm also looking at Phosphor Appear watches due to their unique way of displaying time. And i bet i'll find something else after i get that...

    It doesn't matter how much the watch costs, it only matters if it makes your heart tick.

    Welcome to WUS.......My name is Little Big Feather and I am a addict.....A watch addict....
    You can never be cured but you can keep it under control.....Two three watches a year, maybe.
    Good luck....Good hunting for the next watch.

    Sorry but the only "real" watch is a Jaeger LeCoultre. If you dont believe me just ask them...

    Tell me LBF how does one control it and buy just 2 or 3 watches per year?
