It is a great pleasure when your wife shares your favorite hobby with you. No, “sharing” would be saying too much... 😎
She understands me. Not always with my purchases. But in principle. I hope so, at least. Hahahahaha
And I always emphatically assure her how much the value of my watches is and that this is a great investment („A reallocation of assets is not a real expense.“ 😊).
Just like „I always try to reduce my collection“ by letting rarely or not worn watches go.
Sometimes she looks at me in silence with a long look that seems to penetrate me. I'm not sure if she doesn't see through me…
But fact is that she has a great understanding of why watches are so special for me and some of them are, yes, works of art.
My best wife of all has significantly fewer watches than me.
But she really enjoys wearing the few watches she has.
What are your experiences with your spouse or partner? With regard to watches, of course. 😉

Excellent! I hope you always find your buried treasures again. 😁
We do not really share this hobby
But she received a nice Basculante watch for our first daughter's birth. She has worn it non-stop for 14 years now and will pass it on to our eldest when she reaches 18. My watches keep coming and going in- and out of the collection but she must have a se...
Thank you for your interesting insights.
The question is, is it zen or just lesser interest? 😊 “Normal” people cannot always understand our passion. In any case, I think it's wonderful that your wife has worn your gift for 14 years and is going to hand it to your eldest daughter. That means that...
Ha! Thanks for your kind words, my friend! 😊
I'm not sure if it's a (watch) nirvana, but it's definitely ... enjoyable. Although I have to admit that in spite of everything, I sometimes have a guilty conscience when I come home with a new watch… 😎 All the best Thomas
Oooohhh I can attest to this one
Just added this to the collection. Took a photo of it the first time it was worn out. The wrist wearing it was…not my own… What can I say? Mrs E has good taste? “What’s yours is mine”, after all… Best E.
„What’s yours is mine” sounds … dangerous to me. Very very dangerous. Cheers Thomas P.S.: Unfortunately, your photo is not visible when opening your post. Can you try it once more?
Yes, now it worked!
This is a very beautiful PC from PP. What is its case size? I like the hobnail bezel on this version. Cheers Thomas
You both really wear your watches alternately? In this case, I bow reverently and express my greatest admiration. Especially to you. LOL I don't know if I could take this…. 😅 Best Thomas
Well, only some watches. Mostly she has hers and I have mine. There are a few which we can both wear. I don’t mind - helps to ensure support Best E.
Hmm, tricky balance
Mine eyes me like a hawk, she always says quality over quantity. But I like some quantity, equally enjoying a Tag Heuer to a Grand Seiko. She asks me to sell some seldom worn pieces away, but I find all of them sentimental, like distance markers on a mara...
A „tricky balance“ …. Very well said. Every now and then I sell a watch that I rarely wear and for which the fire is not really burning or has even gone out to fund a grail watch. This is good and important in order to be able to enjoy each watch of your ...
Thank you, M4.
I will tell my wife about your compliment about her Moser. Best Thomas
Tolerate, accept, embrace, engage
Dear Thomas, Thanks for raising this question - very interesting indeed. With my wife, I would describe the situation like that: she understands why I’m passionate about watches, she (mainly) accepts my focusing so much time on it, she learned to like the...
Having permission is always comforting. 😁 Very nice Breguets by the way! Cheers Thomas
