I've been experiencing a fair amount of horofatigue as of late.  I'm not alone, as several of my watch collecting friends whom I keep in touch with are endorsing similar lackadaisical sentiments toward horology.  Perhaps it's the constant deluge of new releases from young independent watchmakers, or the soaring costs and delivery times, or the realization of rampant fraud polluting the vintage dealer and auction worlds, or the Sisyphean feeling that I'm caught in an interminable rat race toward the next best watch, or a combination of all these factors and more.

The Zeitwerk has calmed me down and reinvigorated my love for watches.  It's beautiful, playful and unique, making use of the remontoire function to display time in a wholly original manner.

I simply love it.

I don’t know why, since nothing specific happened, although your considerations make a lot of sense. I’ve also seen similar past posts where it seems to be a phase. At this point, i’m more content to live vicariously through you all, but without pining af... 

Yes I agree!

The platinum version dial is too monotone for me personally

I wish it had a black dial + Pt case combo ... a la Dato ...

Probably right

Oh yeah, ZEIT is just so freakin' cool ... what imagination, what conception, what execution!

Obviously, it has won many, many awards since its release, which shows that many people, including the experts who handle watches regularly, feel the same way. Also, an entire 1.5 hours episode of HSNY talk was dedicated to just this one model ... there i...  

Love this!

Always good to have other hobbies/interests to maintain a healthy balance.

But I've come to accept that watches are in my blood and I'm incurable.🤒 Nice Zeitwerk, by the way!

Thank you!!

The Zeitwerk is the perfect cure for watch ennui....

.... I find the Lange 1 and Datograph similarly therapeutic.

For me it's less about boredom. It has more to do with having satisfied my desires.

I think the stage of life one is in has something to do with it.

Great shots!

I share your feelings and thoughts. And its interesting to see that others do so too. The reasons may of course vary on individual basis, but I do think that what you have stated about the industry and market have a significant influence.

Agree with you on a lot of counts …
