    WIS - An insatiable pass time?

    Will you ever say 'ok, I have all the watches I'll ever need' ?

    "need" - Maybe.
    "want" - No chance !
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    all depends to some once they have the grail then no other watch matters so for them yes

    other's like me it's not the money it the sheer joy of hunting them down the unusually and the broken.. then the fun of see if I can fix them ... then if unique then they enter my collection if not gift and or the charity shops get's them..

    so I don't have a figure in my head of that many then that's it . but I do sometime move some on to make room for more but they are like the one's I have had the longest and more often then not quartz
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I think there could be a point in the distant future where I'll have no desire to buy another watch. Then again...maybe not.

    Perhaps I dont "need" another watch, unless it comes with the stun gun complication.

    hmm maybe that's still a "want"
