It might be reasonable to assume that the “watch collector” is a relatively recent species of timepiece consumer. But I would suggest that watch collectors have existed from the very beginning of watch ownership. This becomes apparent if one mentally time travels back to the earliest times when portable timekeeping devices began to first emerge in the 15th century.
The article Why There Have Always Been Watch Collectors first appeared on aBlogtoWatch and was written by Ariel Adams.
