Wrist watch collecting

For the past few years I've developed a hobby for wrist watches. Not sure why or how it came to be but I'm spending quite a bit of time and money collecting these things.

I keep watching these YouTube videos and it's only fueling my hobbies. Anyone else got bitten by the watch bug ?

my favorite watch is my trusty seiko snk809. Had it for years now and I wear it daily. Second favorite is probably my omega speedmaster professional. The heritage of that moon watch is incredible and the manual winding feels fantastic.

Really want a seagull 1963 now. Such a bad ass Chinese watch.

This year alone I bought and sold 6 or so high-end watches and have 2-3 more on the way. It's addicting the more you learn about a particular watch's heritage and quirks, but I am coming near a point where my collection can be called "complete" and my wallet can breathe

Join the convo.

there already a show off your watch thread clothes department

saving up for a white limited edition sevenfriday watch, i dont know why i even need to save when i can get a fake one for cheaper plus it i might not even wear it cuz my wrist is too small

most of the watch i wear on a daily are fake cuz its my beater watch, like i can take any where and not worry about scratches and shit, except for g shocks cuz most of the fake/reps just dont too good for me (like color is like kinda off that its obvious (like i dont care if u call me its the off color that bugs me)

my last watch i got was a unknown brand pocket watch which the company is from japan, i got it for my dad as he wanted a pocket watch with a hunting case for a long time but never got to buying it (i bought it in 2016 for his brithday present)

then my dad pass away next year and i took it, kept it, never ever dare to use it as it was the last present i ever bought him..........it was also the last time i bought a watch (intill now, but chances are slim)

i currently wear a white g shock GA that i was going to give to a friend but i ended up wearing it cuz he got something else, also the last watch my dad got me (my dads a huge watch guy and got me in to watches)

man must learn how to dress well and he also must learn to pair his accessories well

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~
