It goes without saying that the world is full of great classic brands, all different but each with their own characteristics. Some say that I like the movement of Jaeger-LeCoultre, the shape of Cartier, and the refinement of Vacheron Constantin. Others say that they prefer the 8500 anti-magnetic movement of Omega, the strong hardness of Panerai and the gentlemanly style of Lange & Söhne. Others say they can’t resist the beauty of the Royal Oak’s octagon, the artistic charm of Jaquet Droz and the delicacy of Breguet’s tourbillon. In short, since there are only 3 “indicators” available, it is important to choose the 3 different models that you consider to be the most iconic in your mind. I’m sure many people feel the same way, after all, each with their own unique characteristics that cannot be easily missed.
However, there are those who don’t think like the above. Whether it’s 3, or a few, or even more, they are only willing to pour all their affection into one or two brands, such as a Rolex Aquatimer, a Rolex Gold, and a Patek Philippe complication watch; or an replica Omega Seamaster, an Omega Butterfly, plus a Jaeger-LeCoultre Master; or an IWC Pilot, a Portuguese Seven Days Chain, plus a Blancpain Classic; or even a Rolex Aquatimer, a Rolex Steelti, and a Rolex GMT, obsessive enough. Their view is that if the choices are limited, why not focus all their efforts on the brand they are most attracted to and most fond of?
Then there is the case where, unlike the above two scenarios, they see their watch as a testament to their continued success in their career or as a ‘comrade’ that they are fighting alongside. This is often the case where the brand or model is on an upward curve. For example, starting with a Casio electronic watch, then a Longines mechanical watch, and then a Jaeger-LeCoultre mechanical watch as one’s career progresses. Or, starting with a Tissot quartz watch, then an Omega Seamaster diving watch, then a Patek Philippe Nautilus. I’m sure there are many examples of this around you, or maybe you are one yourself. After all, for many people, the constant change of status quo and the constant pursuit of progress is an indispensable force.
In fact, whether it’s 3 uk replica watches or several, none of this matters. You can read people through their watches and you can try to notice and discover them.
