My friend saw me wearing my vintage Omega Seamaster that I just got. Our conversation went similarly like this:
Him (joking): Nice vintage Omega, but are you sure it didn't come from someone who died?
Me: Haha, very funny, I'm not sure it would matter.
Him: Would you wear dead peoples' clothes?
Him: But you would wear a dead person's watch?
Me: If I can buy it for cheap enough!
Him (joking): You better watch out, it might be haunted or cursed! If it starts floating in thin air or starts bleeding, who you gonna call?
So I ask you all, would you care if your used/vintage watches possibly came from a dead person? In other words, a watch that was on the owner when he died, and then sold to you. I mean, most of us wouldn't wear dead peoples' clothes, right? Even though my friend was joking, I thought it was an interesting point. I'm not that superstitious, but a lot of cultures believe it's bad luck to own something from a dead person without them explicitly giving you rightful ownership. Luckily my Seamaster came from an original owner who's still alive . Also, like I said, as long as I can get it cheap enough I don't think I would care, just as long as it wasn't stolen from the dead person.
