That's kinda what I was getting at, there's a specific trait I look for (8o'clock crown) ever since my first watch, a Citizen NY. I just liked it so much that I started my collection based on it. It is a rare quality though, and leaves me feeling inadequate when I look at my watches :lol:If fluffing up one's collection equals buying for the superficial look of a full watch case, then no I don't. And like Frans, I've noticed no one gives a flying you-know-what about my watches. An eye roll from the wife is more like it.
After joining this place I did ratchet up my watch purchase rate, but it didn't take long to realize I only like a fairly narrow aesthetic in watches and I stick to that.
I see your point, but I'm definitely not into Rolex at all, or copies/homages/fakes thereof. I understand that they are nice and whatever, I just don't care for them. The watch I'm basing this question from is definitely inferior quality. That said, it is definitely not a copy of anything that I'm aware of, I really doubt it is.IMO, kind of a lame concept. Don't see why anyone would waste money on something they didn't like. Or knew was an inferior product like a fake Rolex just to increase the amount of pieces in their collection. I've bought a few on impulse. But I don't regret it.
I like it for one aspect. Aesthetics. I think it looks great. But it doesn't have the hardware to back it up unfortunately. Due to that, I likely wouldn't wear it. Yet it is inexpensive, and the money would hardly be missed, so I almost feel like its a "why the hell not" circumstance. Even then, I suppose we could all probably agree it would be frivolous and unfruitful.
