I'd love to share and talk watches but I think I'd feel self-conscious and simply say of my vintage watch that it's called a Seamaster and is designed to keep out water.I got one compliment on my white dial, blue bezel Ploprof at a bicycle shop. The cashier said, "Nice watch". I said thank you. Then he said, "what kind of watch is that"? I said, it's an Omeega. Then he said, "that's really cool".
Not at all. Just on my boyish good looks!Funny I never get compliments when I wear my speedy, hamilton or tissot watches. I always end up getting compliments for my supposedly eye catching gray rubberband Cross watch worth about 70$ that I wear on sport occasions like scuba diving.
I have to assume 95% of the population don't know much about watches besides the ones on special price at the local Wal-Mart.
