Last week I sat down in a bar discussing this topic with my colleague Jon Henrik Haraldsen from the Norwegian watch website, tidssonen.no. I showed him a website of a guy that was all crazy about some toys and he showed me a video about someone who was going all mad on cheese knives. Dedicated stuff. On his website there is also a forum where collectors and enthusiasts can discuss watches, but they also have this thread that basically covers this “the others are worse” topic and list websites and videos of people who are deeply into all other things than watches. I have to admit that I’ve come across certain websites of people with other hobbies than watches, like vintage computer games (G&W handhelds) that made me think “Watches aren’t that bad”. I think some of them might encounter more difficulties in attempting to explain to others what they are doing… More at Fratellowatches.
The article above is about watch collecting, but it does highlight the things other people collect. So, what about you? Have you ever collected something unusual?
