    True! because at least for NMWA products, I hardly have to wait for their email, SF/ Twitter/ IG take care of that.

    True but the Canada Goose collaboration last year had a parka in "caviar" olive that I thought was an unbelievably different and beautiful color that I haven't really seen much of elsewhere, really wish I had copped.

    You should have copped the loro piana collab instead, they sat on sale 50% off.

    A "Should Have Kopped: The One That Got Away" thread could be pretty good

    Would like to echo this statement, and also ask what some of you guys think are the best websites that provide information and photos of past shows?

    Eh, I wouldn't say there's any obligation to. Maybe if you're in an industry where there's some kind of creepy prestige requirement and you're lacking in social and cultural capital if you don't wear a baller timepiece. I'm just kind of addicted to being able to tell time just by glancing at my wrist. I wear a super-cheap Seiko, FWIW.

    I dunno much about watches but my boss has a Panerai (dunno what model, the cool looking one!!) and it got me interested. I'm just not a fan of jewelry in general. It just looks heavy to type in that thing!!

    probably in the minority but i have 0 interest in owning watches, maybe the hunter pocket watch is interesting, but wouldn't ever wear one on my wrist. for practical purposes i go by the sun's position, otherwise just check my phone.

    patek prices seem to have plummeted 10s of thousands?? at least when i checked few weeks back in the mall here it was way less than it was in london couple years ago (even after -VAT).

    I'm with you shah, watch-fetischism is weird.

    I think once you start fetishizing Native American, repro, Japanese indigo, Guidi leather sneakers, you forfeit your right to call other people's consumer interests weird.

    You should start it. It would be a great thread to also reminisce about the good ol days before X designer sold their company/quality went down, etc etc.

    Mechanical watches are awesome.
