What gets me going is when an auction item is "important"!  I can barely contain myself!!  Just the word itself adds two zeros to what I'd pay!


All sarcasm aside, words are just words.

In my journey, I have noticed a change in how I view things.  I'd like to think that I have "distilled" my likes (notice I did not use the word "refined").  I can't say there are watches that I dislike.  Maybe ambivalent towards?

I like to see other's watches, but can not see me buying or wearing that particular model.  In other words, just because I would not buy it, doesn't mean it is not a fantastic watch.

I buy what I like.  I buy what I can afford. I wear what I like.  Don't care too much about adjectives and adverbs.  -John

Rare, Unusual, Desirable, Must-Have {Exclusive! 😀}

These terms are often used interchangeably by sellers of exotic items, whether (in our case) cars or watches. I believe there is a spectrum -- often a very long distance -- between rare and desirable, or unusual and must-have. How do you decide? Cazalea ...  

But you also must remember...

...just because you can, doesn't always mean you should : )

Thanks, I added that!

I like unusual watches like this Azimuth Roboto

But - maybe more often with such brands - there are some disadvantages e. g. communication. I sent an email some days ago and get no answer. Bad performance. My decision? You know already.

Just buy what you like and makes you smile 🤗
