Hey! I talked a bit my circle of contacts (those who are interested in bells in any case ) and we ended up in a discussion about what actually made us interested in watches. There were about as many reasons as there were people in the room and it was extremely interesting for me to hear why others were getting .. to tick. () For me, it was the extreme tolerance of micro mechanics, where you tampered with nature so that you can keep an eye on something completely invented by man (seconds, hours, date). I think the actual concept of clockwork is interesting, incredibly awesome how it has been possible to get something to go exactly, despite always fighting different types of natural imperfections.Others said it was the "status factor" that led them on the track, a third said he saw some Richard Mille watches and thought they were simple majestic and after that he was interested. In addition, he said he liked the concept of jewelry but he felt it was wrong to have a gold chain or the like. So - what do you say? How did you get interested? Was it the gems and the status that attracted you or was the micro mechanics and polishing? Maybe something different?
