    Is it just me? :-)

    I have various hobbies one of which is amateur radio. If you ask any amateur radio operator anywhere in the world, most of them well tell you that you have this obsession with always looking for antennas, whether it be on top of the tower, or on the chimney stack, it's something that you just can't stop yourself from doing when you are out and about. I find myself doing the same when it comes to watches, whenever I see somebody on the telly wearing a nice watch, I will do my best to try and work out what sort it is, whether it's just cheap watch, or a prestige well-known make. I suppose that's what comes with having an interest in nice watches, you're not only interested in what you are wearing, but what other people are wearing as well.

    No, it is normal. First I check how a persons teeth look like. Then the watch.
    On ladies, I tend to stop and check halfway between the teeth and the watch. Natural. Healthy!

    You're not a true WIS if the first thing you do upon encountering another person isn't identify the watch they are wearing and subsequently forming an opinion on them because of what choice they have made...

    More than once I realize that I'm tilting my head or adopting some strange postures to take a better look at someone's watch...
    I hope it doesn't get any worse than this!

    I do the same thing. When I see a watch I find particularly interesting, I usually make the mistake of telling whomever I'm with, usually my wife, who couldn't care less.
