Been thinking lately about how my taste in watches has changed since I got into the hobby (or caught the illness). When I started I loved watches with lots of complications like chronographs etc then over time I went through the dive watch period and I still do like dive watches then I got into Swiss automatic watches and lusted after all the latest models. But now, I've fallen out of love of Swiss watches mainly because most of the ones I bought were uncomfortable on my wrist due to case design and being big,I've also fallen out of love with automatics I just find when you have a few its a pain in the ass having to set them when you want to wear them and as for accuracy most are pretty bad compared to quartz (still love my fortis marinemaster and have got it to +3 seconds a day so happy with that 👍) I find now I don't even look at new watches anymore and tend to search for retro or vintage japanese watches mainly 70's and 80's and usually quartz, i just find they fit me better being smaller,have some lovely cases and dials and don't cost a small fortune (at the moment). Just find it funny over the last 20 years my taste in watches has change so much and at this point I'd rather grab my king seiko quartz to wear rather than a modern Swiss automatic costing thousands..
So I'm now in a happy place with my collecting and it don't cost me a fortune, take my new arrival a 83 citizen quartz cost less than 100 pounds with a stunning textured blue dial👍💥💯👊
Is this the norm or am I just weird 🤣
