Do you ever find yourself just aimlessly-admiring your watch? What is this sickness?

I'm sitting in my car in the bay at Jiffy Lube, and I realize I'm just staring at my day date homage...admiring its lines and shiny bits...while it pours a warm joyful syrup of glee over me. Not even my best girlfriends have been able to do that! Do you folks gaze at your watches while at the market, at a shop, while in queue, or while at KFC stuffing your face? What is this sickness we all suffer? Tell us your story.聽

I need a job & home where I'm not working on one or the other to be able to do that

Uh... yeah 馃槅

I always have that short pleasurable moment every time I glance at whatever watch I'm wearing for the day, either to check the time, or to give my brain some distraction from crunching work. I blurt out, "Hayy... ang ganda mo talaga!" @TheSharperTheBetter @JTinLA12 @rodeenski @chrislang @IanCognito @Ichibunz and others will understand. 馃槈 Then, after 10 seconds or so, I get back to what I'm doing, but with a smile on my face. 馃槑聽

Totally talaga! 聽And this is why I buy watches that speak to me vs. whatever brand or model is being hyped or sought after ATM. Its those moments of private joy that make this hobby so fulfilling. Not flexing online or finding an investment watch. Just what the OP said, thats why I love this addiction 馃槈

Mismo, pare, mismo. Agree with you, 馃挴000% Cheers and enjoy! 馃嵒

To your girlfriend comparison, whenever I do stare at my girlfriend... admiring her beauty, lines and shiny skin... I also keep blurting out, "Hayy... ang ganda mo talaga!" She then always gives me a warm smile, with a sparkle in her eyes. 馃槉聽For me, it's a similar glee, but never apples and apples. 馃槈馃槑聽

Yung ceramic smile, pati 904L skin 馃槀聽

Boom! Yun nga! 馃槀馃槣聽

Oh yeah, totally. One of the features I need on a watch is that it makes me smile at least on the inside.聽

What attracts me the most the way its built, special movement and the special time occasion.

For me, the honeymoon is over quickly. 聽But I do enjoy discussing the dating to honeymoon period when others inquire. 聽That may change when I get a grail...
