My wife gives me a strict watch budget, as I noted in a previous post I was debating between two rather very expensive watches and tried to go for how about I get both of them? I ended up getting an Itay Noy which left a lot of the watch budget left but it magically disappeared because as my wife said "You wanted double or nothing and you got nada." But in all honesty she is a good sport because I collect fountain pens and mechanical watches, not cheap hobbies.

I Used to dabble in collecting whisky as well as watches. But the box and bottles take too much space. That hobby ended pretty quickly. 馃槃

She "allows" me my hobby. The ones she's given me means the most and that gives me grace through it all.

My wife gave up long ago trying to talk sense into me that I don鈥檛 need another watch. Now she tries to bookmark ones I show her as gift ideas for the future. Trouble is I end up just buying what I want for myself. 馃槅

I can't imagine being in a relationship in which I would need permission.

My Mrs is into the hobby herself - she's just getting into modding/repairs which doesn't interest me in the slightest but I'm glad she enjoys it...
