It seems I posited two extremes in that statement, but in truth there is a middle way: Not encouraging, not dissuading, but conveying one's experience and offering perspectives impartially.

That said, I suppose I'd have to say to the would-be watch obsessive: better not to get into it at all, because it is endless and impossible to satiate. On the other hand, if it isn't watches it will likely be something else, and potentially something more harmful.


I encourage it. I've given oversized (not dinner plates, but let's say, over 40MM) watches to people who probably haven't bought a watch since the 80s or 90s----just to give them the feel of what larger watches today are like. On my Christmas list this year----at least two people getting watches (already purchased), but probably more to come. For all the misery of buying and selling, anxiety of not wearing all of them often enough, etc.----I love the hobby and I want others to understand the obsession.
