Do people notice your watches?

So a few weeks ago, I spent an afternoon at Kirchhofer, in Interlaken, where I often visit during weekend to meet with fellow watch lovers. I was wearing this Retro Sport, designed by Gerald Genta, and I was surrounded by everyone, enthusiasts customers, sellers, and even their in-house watchmaker. It's not a super expensive but it's a rare piece from the early 2000s. Of course I was humbly gloating all afternoon.

Now, back to the real world. I worn the exact watch to work. No one noticed, it not even the one self-proclaimed watch snob (who only buys a Rolex) bat an eye. Big reality check here, very few people outside of WIS care what watch you are wearing. Good thing we don't wear them for other people we just appreciate them.

Any thought or similar experiences?

I get the reverse. I go to work with a Seamaster 300 diver on and no one will say a word. I then go to work with a Casio Duro on and get three or four comments during the day. LOL.

Only watch I’ve ever had a comment on is a Ball Roadmaster TMT. I no longer have it though.

·

I am the invisible man . I only feel validated when I think I might get robbed 😂

·

Nope. No one ever notice the watches I wear or even that I wear a different one every day. The only time I got asked about a watch was when I wore my Glycine Airman because of its 24 hour dial and even then it only happened twice during last year.

You want to get noticed? Get a pair of boobs.

Only in the watch store 😕

Get complements from women are when I'm wearing the "Seiko Tank" or a vintage "Seiko Santos". My Tudor, Omega, Hamilton.... nothing. Oh I get complements for wearing the Casio Calculator Watch too ... coz it's 80s retro chic!

·

A couple of times my Seiko Presage got noticed at my work. The dial kept glimmering under the bright light and caught attention.

Apart from that, nobody really cares about what watch you are wearing.

Yes, in my experience people generally have to come very close to notice. The last person to comment on my watch (PRX) was a woman hugging me at a party.

Sales people may comment on your watch no matter what you wear.

Duro for the win! 🤣

I usually wear long sleeves, and my watch is hidden underneath the cuff 99% of the time. Most people don't even realize that I am wearing a watch.

·

the watches that get the most attention from non-watch folks are my orange dialed divers, for obvious reasons.

·

My Grand Seiko green birch SLGH011... is a chick magnet.

·

A nice jumper , with a nice watch and a decent aftershave, can be a great combination.

·

Of most of my watches, many notice my Radio Shack talker — especially if the well-spoken chum has just announced the time.

No , well not often. Only the odd college at work, but as they are into watch's too it doesn't really count as " in the wild".

Can you share a picture of your seamaster and Duro ? Please
