When serious watch collectors meet for a meal, what do they wear on their wrists?  1 Comments


Just before 2010 came to an end, a group of collector friends got together to celebrate the year that went by and found it a useful excuse to meet up yet again to have a great meal, nice wine and conversations about watches. Being a gathering of like minded collectors, several turned up with watches on both wrists - which is not uncommon for this particular group of collectors. All without exception are well versed about all things horological and the ensuing debate that inevitbly follows during the meal continue to fuel the discussions for hours on end.

It is interesting to observe though - looking at the table capture of the watches worn that night - surprisingly there no models from 2010 releases. I would almost dare say not even 2009 but the IWC Vintage Portuguese (grey dial) while released in 2009, is technically a remake of an old design, and the Omega Polprof while new, is also a remake of an old design.

I wonder what conclusions can one draw here? Are these collectors trapped in the past with a preference for older models or are the models being offered in 2009/10 not interesting enough?
