Thank you for this perspective. I needed to hear it. I have been trying to consolidate my collection, partly because I hear others talk about it. But I really like your approach. Just because a watch isn’t getting wrist time, it doesn’t mean that it can’t have importance to us. Thanks!
For me, it’s not about the functionality at all. But my GMT watches help me stay connected to my home town. I live in the central time zone but I grew up in the eastern time zone. Whenever I look down at my GMT watch and see that extra hand pointed at the eastern time, I feel connected to my parents and family back home.
I don’t think you’re wrong at all in being attracted to one brand more than others. I have this weird affinity for Bulova watches. I have 3 now. They are affordable and have a very unique design language. But I also love having other watches.
