Thanks for the link to a new site I didn't know about....very insightful guy, Gibson - this quote of his pretty much sums up how I feel about my watch craziness after a few years:
" So I never deliberately accumulated watches, except as the temporary by-product of a learning curve, as I searched for my own understanding of watches, and for the ones I’d turn out to particularly like. I wanted an education, rather than a collection. But there’s always a residuum: the keepers. (And editing is as satisfying as acquiring, for me.)"
I think the parenthetical "editing" comment explains a lot about why a lot of collectors keep the acquisitive process going - they also enjoy the "editing" process.

It was an interesting read. I fully expected the "power jewelry" to be a reference to Invicta and other similar brands. Instead, he was referring to Swiss Luxury brands. I thought by "power" he meant oversized and over the top, like some Invicta styles. Instead, he was referring to the rich using their status watches for peacocking.

In fact, Invicta is sniffed down upon by the luxury watch wearing power class.

That luxury car driving crowd looks down on Hyundai and KIA for the same reason. It's interesting----they don't look down at Honda and Toyota because of the relatively bland styling of most of their models (though that's been changing the last couple years). But with the Korean brands, particularly Hyundai, they are upset because the design of the car mimics the high end Mercedes and other euro/luxo cars. In the same way, Invicta knocks off the expensive watch brands and that stirs resentment.

I dig the new Hyundai Genesis in smoke gray. Looks good to me.
