Warren Ellis recently wrote about his collection of watches and ultimately how he feels about wearing one.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”17″]I’m at the point where I’m okay with putting the phone in my pocket and having a solid piece of art on my wrist that just tells me the time. I may finally have reached the point, here in my dotage, where just putting on a nice watch is a statement of escape from work.[/perfectpullquote]
I’m with Warren here. My wife got me a Citizen Eco-drive Wr100 e870-S015278 Perpetual Calendar Calibre 8700 several years ago and I love it (this one isn’t mine, but it looks exactly the same). I saw it, fell in love with it and she got it for me as one of her first gifts. It is a treasured possession.
Occasionally, I get a twinge of wanting an Apple Watch and then I’ll look at my wrist and remember why I don’t want an Apple Watch when I have this beautiful piece of art in place.
