thing about the world of watch collecting, besides finally getting that long sought after grail watch? :-!
You know what? I feel the same way. Sometimes I find myself checking my watch's tracking number daily, wondering where it's at, waiting until the day it finally arrives.I actually like the anticipation while the watch is being shipped. Such a sweet angony. Often the wanting is better than the having. Waiting is underrated.
It's hard to say, really. There are quite a few good aspects in this hobby. One of my favourites is the feeling when an impulse buy slowly grows on you so that it eventually becomes one of your favourite pieces of your collection. I've made many impulse buys just because of the aesthetics or the great deal I was offered, and now I like some of them more than I like some of the pieces I lusted after for a long time. It seems that real love emerges slowly and passion often fades away.
