The World Record for watch comments/ compliments

Ok my fellow crunchers 

this felt like a word record, but will confess it’s not been yet ratified by Guinness 

3 times yesterday - coworkers and passersbys commented and wanted to look at my watch.  
Having an Apple Watch Normie ask to see my watch and giving compliments is as common as unicorns, so 3 in one day felt epic.  

The watch you ask…?  
Ceramic Captain Cook 🧑‍🍳!  Not a grail watch and one that I got for a crazy low sale price at a grey dealer in Japan.  
You never know what will catch the eye of the normal ‘who cares about watches’ public 

Any watches of yours had similar interest from random friends and strangers?

my favourite lineup from rado. i like it more on beads of rice bracelet 👍👍

The only watch I wear that has ever got any attention from non watch people is my Glycine Airman No. 1, which is hardly a glamorous or expensive looking watch.

That Captain Cook is awesome!

The most compliments I've got is on my g shock but I think people just like the color. And it's only ever come up if we're discussing watches. I don't get stopped by strangers for it.

Went out with the lads from work the other week and one of them loved this pan europ (old photo its on an engineering bracelet now) and he wears a 90s Tag, so I count that as a win.

Used to work with the public a lot and the watch that got the most notice was an old made in China fashion watch looking thing I only wore to make a girlfriend happy (she had picked it out and I didn't have the heart to say anything... At the time). Nothing special about it, just a plain ass white dial, with some "Bauhaus" painted on for markers 😂

It's crazy but I get more looks and compliments on my fashion watches than my traditional brands 🫢

3… in the same day?!

What an epic day my friend. I almost got a watch comment when I accidentally shoved my wrist in someone’s face a work grabbing a flying paper.. but instead it was just “hey! Get your watch outta my face!”

I've tried on the regular steel Cook in a couple colors - the beads of rice is fantastic!

Pretty tame colorway - but anyone who notices the dial I'm sure does a double take😮

I can believe that.  A fluorescent watch is pretty much demands to be noticed 💪

I'm sure it won't be weird when I ask the person who is interested in my watch for a picture with me holding my wrist beside their head so I have evidence the scenario actually happened.  Next time, if it ever happens again 👍.  

I think for most of us, if a person who mentions our watch, even to say 'get it away from me', it's considered a comment.  So chalk that annoyed comment up as a win my friend!!!

It's not though. It's just lime green. 😮
