Watches helped survive COVID

Post by biglove » Mon Aug 16, 2021 6:45 pm

Watch purchases last year helped me maintain my sanity before and after having COVID.

And although I have lingering effects in some memory lapses, body aches and fatigue and diabetes that has been far more difficult to control, I consider myself fortunate. ... -and-hope/

For once, I do agree with an article. All the way.

Last year was such a mind-bender, and I can't even imagine what it was like for people who have contracted COVID. Last July, after just doing a whole bunch of nothing for months because of the lockdown, I researched a Rolex model I wanted and bought it. Out of town. At full nut.

Life is short. Like the old Robert Herrick poem: "Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May." Time is finite. I'm telling you - I hope every watch collector here has the opportunity to go out and get the piece they really want, regardless of whether it is a $150 Seiko or a ten grand JLC. I'm not saying to go out and irresponsibly blow all your cash on a wildly expensive watch.

I just want all my friends here to really dig in and enjoy the hobby, and experience that really great moment - just a moment - where you say to yourself, "I'm having such a great time." No regrets. Just obtaining a piece that speaks to you more than all the others. I don't know if this makes any sense to anyone else, but the article certainly did to me.
