You know you are a Purist when... (feel free to complete as appropriate)

 By: VinnieD : February 23rd, 2021-00:09
... you just glanced at your watch and have no clue what time it actually is

That is my daily weather forecast.

I think today it is Longines day.
Tomorrow Omega clouds.
Friday Baume time.
Saturday i wear all.

...when you’re afraid to open the daily watch news, even if you already know Patek will never partner up with a car company..πŸ˜‚

Ferrari has been with way too many car companies!

 By: patrick_y : February 23rd, 2021-11:27
GP, Panerai, Hublot, and now Richard Mille and that's all within this millennium! That's a lot! In a very short period of time! Good one FabR!

Did it all started with Heuer?

 By: Weems@8 : February 23rd, 2021-12:43
And Heuer is now Red Bull.

Compare Valerie, Louis, and Max, i think IWC have won the match best F1 time keeper.

That's exactly what I do!

That was my second thought!

I even once recognised someone from his watch (cool, rare JLC below). We are such nerds!

When you get banned, or leave of your own accord

 By: Time to watch : February 23rd, 2021-09:41
And regret your actions every day thereafter.

may be few indications ?!

 By: mahesh : February 23rd, 2021-10:18
when one start disliking 'date' windows

when one start hating 'automatique/automatic' on dial

when one starting the second next watch to buy even before the next watch 

being purist is a fun !


About that date window...

 By: VinnieD : February 23rd, 2021-12:55
Could we envision a Purists edition of a well known watch that would be customised without a date?
Any ideas? Something not totally unreasonable in terms of budget?
Maybe a nice enamel from Breguet?

You never know what 2021 is bringing to all of us !

A mirror for the soul

 By: Weems@8 : February 23rd, 2021-12:34
Purist life, purist all the way.

Forget to look how late it is when checking the matching results of a new strap to the case.

In my case i consider all the time.
New choice to paint the strap or not.
I look it a couple of days that come if i try it.
The strap do not match the dial for 100 percent.
Knowing myself i want a 100 percent perfection.

To be continued.
