Some watches can have up to 300 interconnected pieces running in unison on your wrist. Only a handful of jewellers/houses can even design and create such objects - comparing this to a regular house clock is retarded at best.

You are autistic.
Complexity and craftsmanship is desirable to a lot of people. Call me boring, but my main interests/hobbies are guns, cars and watches.
They're all alike in the sense that they are built for utility. Kill people, transport people, keep track of time.. But underneath the simple functions, there's a vast amount of history, engineering, and beauty. Is a gearhead a hypocrite for driving an NSX instead of a Smart Car? Should HiPoints enjoy the same status as the Mateba Unica Six?
Obviously, watches are used for status symbols. So fucking what. What isn't?

>> No.19508095

I don't know why my not enjoying your objects distresses you so. My question is that if your timepieces were suddenly dirt cheap, with no scarcity, widely available to anyone that wished to enjoy one (or one thousand), would they spark joy to you? If so, then you enjoy them for what they are, and what they do, or how they feel, or how they look. And that seems reasonable.

But if that availability makes them lose all appeal, then you don't really find joy in small personal timepieces at all. What really sparks joy for you is the idea of exclusivity, trendsetting, or projecting wealth and status. There are plenty of people who take joy from that, but strangely few who will say so out loud.

Which goes back to my question; why would I purchase one with unlimited money if they do not spark joy in me?

Ant hills and termite mounds are interesting to us as outside observers, but most people would not wish to live in one. The idea that increasing the number of moving parts or degrees of freedom in a system somehow makes it inherently desirable is a bit odd. Especially considering the growing sense of ennui that seems to come with living in an industrial society. I should point out to you that the concept of simplicity or unity of intent being something that is transcendent or close to the divine is not exactly only a Taoist idea. Its a recurring theme in Abrahamic faiths, all the strains of Buddhism, most of your Greek philosophers, etc... Even Hinduism with its plethora of gods great and small becomes more and more concerned with becoming miscible with the single, unconditioned reality as you read deeper into it.

I suppose there is a common thread in collecting things: If you are someone that is comfortable working on a car, or looking inside your watch, or maintaining the binding on your rare books, it will only make you love them more. In a way, becoming more involved in our things (even as an observer) makes them more 'ours'. And we often don't realize it until somebody asks us why we're so into them, and you get to have this conversation.

Ultimately, I'm shitting on your taste for being based around getting people to stare at your wrist cock. Not the fact that you want to wear a watch that happens to cost a large number of US debt coupons.

Also, nothing discussed so far was explicitly metaphysical. Stop using words you don't understand and bragging about not only not knowing things, but not wanting to know them. Of course if you really wanted to show me up, I suppose you could flaunt you clearly massive wealth in a picture right?

I've been lusting after a Rolex for years. Been making good money but every time I go to upgrade from my Seiko... I think of all the other shit I could do instead with the money.
I've come close to buying a Rolex Hulk (put it on, changed my mind), Rolex Datejust 36 (afraid it will feel too small).
I basically just window shop watches and then the CONSOOOOOM meme dawns on me and I feel kinda bad. Sucks too, I love watches.
Do any of you guys feel this way? Like you think you want it, then you realize you could go on 10 vacations or install a swimming pool in your house?

Fuck, what kind of a strange circlejerk you must be. Keep on masturbating to fantasies on your low inhibition chads.

Why would you buy a rolex? Rolex is shit from almost every perspective. You can buy an actual handmade watch with an inhouse movement and cool complications for the money. Like IWC Portugieser or Zenith El Primero.

Russian mafia doesn't buy AP, because it looks like a G-shock. Only niggers and redditors buy AP.

The perpetual is cheaper than Daytona, has an inhouse movement and is hand made.

that's cap

I hate how people make up stereotypes about new money and old money

people will spend as they please -- I'm close with self-made billionaires and Forbes 10 billionaires and they literally spend as they please

some don't care about fashion and watches but spend millions on boats and houses to party and others will spend absurd amounts on watches and cars and others will just reinvest and let their kids have absolutely anything they want, including any of the aforementioned things.

I just like em, probably because my Dad wore a GMT forever and I like the simplicity of the designs, how little they change, etc. I think the Explorer 1 is a great example of sticking to the heritage.
IWC are kinda cool, you're not wrong. I like the "Top Gun Miramar" pilot watch they had. That looked cool.
I also like JLC.
I think I just need a lot more discretionary income. Just bought my first house and I'm enjoying upgrading it and making it my own. Probably more so than another watch.

>Here's a question for everyone in the thread: When you get your made it watch, what are you going to do with your shitters?
I have a Seiko Cocktail Time and Samurai and a Citizen my Dad gave me. I don't know if I'll ever wear them again after getting the made it watch.

>> No.19519634

watches that are too ornate are literal eye rape because you only ever see someone's watch indirectly in your periphery. If it doesn't impress someone at a glance, it's not worth it.
