It was fun at the time. But, as I have gotten more and more into watch collecting, I can appreciate fine luxury watches. Especially when they are worn by someone who appreciates them not just as a display of wealth but for their art, materials, design, and history. For example, when you look at a Constantin Vacheron watch you see art and a heritage that goes back to 1755. Check out this triple complication pocket watch from Vacheron Constantin. It dates back to 1901 and it is a piece of art.

So, while I can't afford a Rolex or an Audemars Piguet, I can appreciate them and I can dream. That's why I'll write about them from time to time.
