I’ve had my eye on a 36mm Explorer for a while but have been indecisive (would likely sell my Sub if I got one, and I really don’t want to sell my Sub). I rarely see these in the wild and finally saw one on the subway yesterday. For some reason I was blown away by how great it looked in the real world, which is strange as the watch is so understated and isn’t something the necessarily jumps out at you. Out in the world the watch has a mature and classic look that seems to work perfectly to my eye, and it made me going from sort of wanting one to really wanting one.
This has never really happened before- yeah I’ve seen watches that I liked, and that I also wanted to get, but I’ve never had a random sighting make me really want a watch much more before.
Curious if seeing watches in the wild has made someone want more even more.
Hopefully the guy on the subway didn’t think I was too much of a weirdo when I was casually trying to check out his watch (-;
