    Are watches a hobby or an addiction?

    Before joining WUS (and several other watch forums), I'd spend maybe 30 minutes to an hour a day, cruising the 'bay, looking at watches. AW (after WUS), my time spent looking/thinking about watches has rapidly increased. The majority of my internet browser "favorites" are watch sites. I can't go more than a day (actually more like 3 to 4 hours) without spending time at least looking at the various sales corners. I know I'm not alone but am looking for some reassurance in numbers.

    Aren't all hobbies addictions? Otherwise it'll just be a one-off thing n that won't count as a hobby. But i get what u mean. The only way out is to find another addiction..or just lose your job :p

    An addiction??? A 30 year hobby for me. Anyway for an indication of how popular wristwatch collecting is take a look at the number of fora, number of threads snd number of members just on WUS. Then look at TZ, PMWF and the other popular sites. Watch collecting has been popular with guys for a long time.

    I think it's highly dependant on the person. I check this site daily, but rarely buy.

    Its a hobby for the 2 weeks after you buy a new watch. Then you realize its an addiction when you hit this forum again and start window shopping :)
