A few days ago Thieuster posted "Wabi? This is wabi!" then *Part II*. A beautiful pair of watches.
It got me thinking as I was reading the various web pages on the philosophy of Wabi Sabi, which of my watches would be considered as good examples.
I read that the concept included the notion that nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect. It seems it is somewhat like a Japanese flower arrangement, same vase/ same flowers but not equal.
I noticed one thing, the wear must not be intentional (it is a gift of time) and it must not harm the functionality. Just a beat up watch would not automatically be considered Wabi Sabi in nature.
Please post pics of your watches and readers critique them for Wabi Sabi. Maybe we all can learn a little. I won't start because I do not think I own a good candidate. For example my 6105-8110 has a new sapphire crystal. I think it looks Wabi Sabi, but would a new crystal preclude it from admission into this select state of being?
