lmchew commented on How many watches REALLY speak to you? ·

I see a lot of watches and probably only have a positive or curious reaction to 5-10% of them.  And very few capture my imagination in any way. There are some that I think look fantastic, yet am not sure I would ever buy. Others I fall out of love with after a period of time. that said I think I’m much more selective than I was when I started. And I also want to save and get more for my money, even though there are some nice sub $1000 watches out there. 

I forget the question. I think I agree. 🙂
