    Spotting your grail watch on another person?

    I saw my grail watch on a woman at a restaurant last night . Could not help staring at it -hope she didnt think I was weird ( but then I WAS being weird -not for people here though )....Should have walked up to her and say how much I admire it .

    But I didnt .

    What do you do when you see your grail watch in person on another person ?

    Hmmm...like you I may be a bit concerned about coming across weird, or too forward. Depends though on what mood I'm in. Also, if I've had a drink or 2...

    Are you sure that's your grail?? Isn't it a similar price to the Rado and Sinn you were considering? What's stopping you?

    For me spotting a watch that I am actively looking for or already own on someone else is actually a positive. It could be an opportunity for watch talk. And I can appreciate how nice the watch looks from a distance. And it happens a lot on WUS.

    I try to look away and ignore..it's like seeing the love of your life on another man's (or woman's) arms..

    If it's someone I know I'd say "Hi" and compliment his/her watch..and if I feel bold that day, I might even ask if I can try it on..the watch equivalent of going near your crush's vicinity to get a sniff of their hair..

    Is it just me or that sounds too creepy..

    I had this happen just recently on a trip to Vancouver. A gentleman got on the plane and I could see from a mile away he was sporting a JLC MC. I have no issues whatsoever in talking watches with complete strangers and I did so with Christopher. We now chat once in a while but he is definitely into watches. I've initiated many conversations with people and their watches and it's always been a positive chat.
