  • For those who think they have too many watches....

    I wonder how many of us remember Kohei from back in the day when TZ was a fun place to go....

      That's pretty amazing, I don't think I aspire to doing that , however, it is somewhat addictive, so you never know. We did have a valued long time member here by the name of Miles McKinney (Woodlands1) and I think he may have trumped Kohei, he only ever posted a photo of his collection briefly and edited it out soon after, perhaps over security concerns. Unfortunately he passed away last year, but when we had his memorial Friday thread, I posted his last year of Friday watch posts( you'll find it halfway down the page), 52 Fridays, 43 different watches and when I suggested that it may have been 10% of his collection, Henry said, having seen the photos of his collection, he thought it was more like a fraction of a percent. Alas we'll never get to see them.

          I remember it well. It's unforgettable and quite remarkable if you think about how much effort it would have taken to get to that point.

          They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.

            I am not sure my excess being dwarfed by someone else's excess should make me feel better... but I do!

              Rajen who used to frequent this forum, and whom I had the pleasure of eating breakfast with and doing a couple of trades, had a pretty extensive collection. He got my old Sinn U2 which was a very nice watch.

                Thank goodness I don't have nearly that many but I can relate to those images with the various boxes, filled with steel and bubble wrap. I might have close to 150, but aspire to get down to about 5 total.
