The wife can't believe I'm taking another watch photo...
To be fair, she's very supportive and even learns the names of my watches. So, for example, she could tell you that my Sinn is pronounced Zinn, that's it's a U50 and it's made with tegimented submarine steel. She totally talked me in to buying my first two 'proper' watches. She will even guess which watch I'm wearing by touch when it is hidden up my sleeve. We're equally nerdy, though she doesn't wear a watch. I'm a lucky guy!
I often see threads joking around about the kind of misery that would be imposed if a spouse knew what you spent on watches, and I get it, there are more important things in life after all. But my wife honestly couldn't be more supportive. As I say, I'm a lucky guy!
To illustrate what I mean, I should start by explaining that she's an artist. She studied sculpture at the Royal College of Art and is constantly building stuff. Our house is part workshop and part laboratory, and I never know what I might find her up to the elbows in.
Anyway: back to the watches! I have long moaned that she has a more comfortable garden chair than I, so she set about printing the material and then creating a new sun lounger for me. Bless her, she realised almost as she finished that she'd done it upside down and is now contemplating taking it all apart and starting again. The chair has images of three of my favourite watches, as well as a reproduction of the Christmas card image we sent this year - a portrait of us sporting beards of lichen (also made by her). Make of it what you will.
Another of her 'watch curio' creations (this one for Christmas a couple of years ago) was a homemade watch-shaped watch box containing a watch-shaped book featuring pictures of me taking pictures of my watches with locations and dates... How weird is that!
Weird, wonderful and one of a kind! As I say, I'm a lucky guy!
So, after a veritable essay, I get back to the original question: how supportive is your spouse?
