The Tribes: Which Kind Of Watch Guy Are You?
Why did you choose that watch? Don’t say, “To tell the time.” Of course it does, and pretty well too, but we know that if you’ve entered the world of luxury watches there’s more to this game than timekeeping. A better question is: what kind of watch collector are you? Maybe the type who blanches at being considered a “collector”, but anything more than two watches is well on its way to becoming a collection, whether you mean it to be or not and, once a man is bitten by the watch bug it is a racing certainty that he will develop a certain collecting personality. Are you buying with the head or the heart? Or with one eye on a future return? Homing in on a certain niche or committed to a particular genre? We have profiled the five (fairly extreme) examples of watch collector known to science (OK, known to anyone who spends too long on Instagram). If you’re a watch devotee who’s managed to avoid becoming any of these, do let us know how.
