I definitely am one of those people with watch attention deficit disorder. I love so many watches and want to have them all! If only I had an endless bankroll… Lately more than ever I have been messing around with a couple different watches.
I was wearing an IWC Portuguese 7-day Automatic (reference #: IW5001-07) for a while and absolutely loved it. The watch comes on a leather strap though and has more of a sophisticated, dress look to it. I decided that for the summer I should be wearing something that is sportier and comes on a rubber strap.
For that reason I turned to the Abyss Red SuperOcean II on a black Diver Pro II with a deployment buckle. What an awesome watch! Breitling really designed a hot piece with this model. My buddy fell in love with it too and asked me to do a swap with him for a while. I agreed to it and got to wear his black dial Rolex Milgauss for a couple of weeks.
After wearing three fairly different watches over the last couple of months, I wondered what watch I could see myself owning for my entire lifetime and never getting rid of. Obviously watches can become very sentimental to people, especially if they are received as a gift from a loved one for instance. Meanwhile, someone can develop an emotional attachment to a watch due to all of the memories they have made while wearing it or because they simply love the watch!
Do you have a watch in your collection that is invaluable, a timepiece that you would simply never part with?
