So whatever one watch you choose, the universe of what-it-is-not is really large. So you’d need to be comfortable never owning a timepiece in that universe. For most of us with a genuine love of horology, that’s a difficult proposition indeed.
I don’t think anyone can ever overestimate the bond and affection we have with our fury companions. Last year when my divorce was finalized, my ex-wife was granted all of our household possessions. I got Malcolm, our twelve-year-old Cornish Rex. I’d do that deal again a hundred times over.
2020 was such a profound year for me, and it wasn't just COVID, that I've walked away with a deep appreciation for what I have and practically no desire to add anything new. If was the first year in 17 years that I did not buy a new watch and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
My dream car would be a 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish, their grand tourer and the last year of the naturally-aspirated V12. I promised myself that before I pull the trigger, I will test-drive a Tesla for comparison. I think a small part of me will be heart-broken if I prefer the Tesla.
