    Why collect watches?

    Do we ever ask ourself this question?

    I'm curious how you'd explain this to a non-WIS?

    Please try and be more inventive than..why not

    Collecting women is frowned upon by the wife. So, I turned to the next best things, wine and watches.

    My friends & family always ask why i love them so much but for as long as i can remember iv'e always had a passion for wearing a watch,

    the reason why i collect? because when i go to my watch box in the morning to pick one i get a lovely warm fuzzy feeling when i look at my little collection of man jewellery!!

    I'd say cars are too expensive to collect, guitars take up lots of room, with watches you can have lots of beautiful things in a relatively small space!
