I have in the neighborhood of 200 watches at this point---likely more----many of the quartz watches need batteries, so they aren't being worn enough. But I tend to wear the quartz watches that are working, afraid that I will be "wasting" remaining battery power by not wearing them----and because of that, I'm neglecting my automatics. I was so proud of myself for going several months without buying a watch----then put my toes back in the water for "just one more" and am now on a buying binge. Yes, this is crazy. It's unmanageable. It's wasteful. But I won't stop, so it must be filling a void.

I had to quit. I'm at 7, and I don't want to get back into the addiction. I'm much happier now.

I don't thing terminology watch addicting appropriate expression . People buy more because different and charm of product they are like it. Perfection, reason to find it, desire to see beauty in one thing or other. I saw old Timex digital and analog combination, digital display on the top of the watch. different, lock unusual and cool. Nobody make it anymore. Same story with digital Seiko, it is cool! Seiko doesn't make this watch anymore. It wasn't expensive and it is quartz, but try to find this product in good condition and cheap? You will surprise how much it is now! If you like it, buy it. In one way or other if you don't need you sell or maybe yours kids go in some day in college or university and wear your watch will appreciate your gift from time when you been looking for perfection.

Val: It's an interesting point you make---sometimes I buy watches, radios, other things----because of some odd connection I make to the item. It doesn't have to be expensive----it could be very inexpensive but something about it appeals to me and I buy. I think usually, I am drawn to older items---things from when I was a child or maybe a student in high school or college. I recently got the bug to find an old Norelco shaver from the 1960s or 1970s. I found a model on E-Bay that was inexpensive and hopefully it will be as nice in person as it is in the photos. It takes me back to a different time in my life---I might have been 8 or 9 years old when that shaver was sold brand new to someone. When I buy these things---watches, radios, etc., I often think about who built the items---if people working at the factory or maybe who touched the item as it was being assembled or inspected----I wonder if they are still living. And the original owners----who were they? What did they do for a living? Was the shaver a gift from the guy's wife? I love vintage items for that reason.

I thought radio addiction was bad - you guys need help :)

Yea I’m a watch guy too but luckily for me two Citizen’s have satiated that beast
