A few years ago, I got myself a Nomos Club. It was my dream watch. Wonderful and all that.
The inevitable itch struck a few years later when I was presented the opportunity to buy a mint condition Stowa TO2.
for almost two years, I wore the Stowa 90% of the time.
A month ago, I went on vacation. Saw the lovely quartz Baby Tuna watches at Haneda Airport, Tokyo. I was smitten.
Ended up buying one a week later.
I've been wearing it practically nonstop for the past month.
It's gorgeous and so much more interesting than my two far pricier watches.
Yesterday, during a photoshoot, a gorgeous blonde (one of the staff at a corporate headshot session) complimented watch. Sadly, the assistant cut that off so that I did not go off track in the middle of work. DARN! Just as well, I would have been completely sidetracked.
Ok but so far, my Seiko Solar Tuna has gotten more compliments in the past month than the Stowa and Nomos have in the past few years.
Is this the dream? Being able to be happy with a less expensive watch and not having to keep spending more and more to get that dream watch?
My SNE498 is my least expensive watch in the "collection" but my current favourite. What does this mean for the future of my WIS status.
