So today I'm still wearing the SPB147 because I woke up late to work and didn't have time to decide on the WOTD. However, at the office I had to get a pen to sign some documents, which is becoming rare in this age of digital signatures, and then I discovered that my favorite fountain pen ran dry.
Filling fountain pens is a ritual by itself, first I have to take off my watch, then get some latex or vinyl gloves, wiping towels and find which other pens needs a refill.
Which is when I also realized that I have a collection problem. No, I'm not referring to fountain pens, I do collect and use them, and it's not a problem for someone who learned to write with a nib pen and an ink well. I'm talking about leather pouches and rolls. I didn't realize I had so many pen cases, rolls or pouches made of leather until I saw them spread on my desk. I actually have more pen's leather accessories than pens. There's no way I can escape the conclusion that I also collect pen cases.
So...what else are you collecting beside watches? Is it fountain pens, LP records, books, scale models, HiFi audio equipment, women, and when did you realize that you were in fact a collector of these items?
I'm a big fan of watches that are interesting because they are either unique, have interesting features, well designed or simply offer a great value for their price.
