First post here on WUS.
Allow me to briefly tell you how I became interested in watches. My best friend is a watch aficionado, and he has showed parts of his watch collection. Frankly, I appreciated his love for watches but I never understood how fine watches were worth thousands of Dollars, when my Apple Watch was perfectly fulfilling my needs... until he showed me this video on Watchinder's Youtube Channel titled "How does an automatic Watch work", featuring a Patek Philippe 5180.
This was the moment when I first felt an emotional response to what I was seeing -- the impeccable craftsmanship, attention to detail, and above all the seamlessness that I cannot describe in words. I'm a musician, so the best way for me to compare it to is a Beethoven Symphony, where a sequence of individual tiny events make a fluid organic whole. And now I'm hooked... and I want to learn everything I can about this beautiful art.
I've been lurking on the forums a bit for the past couple of weeks and I enjoy the community spirit. Looking forward to getting to know some of you!
