I used to have a lot of fancy watches. I’d buy and collect them everywhere I went. They have really nice ones in Hong Kong and I remember buying quite a few.
I think in my time, we valued watches more and would often look forward to receiving a watch as a gift. Of course, they weren’t Hamilton watches or anything, just cheap watches that ran out of steam pretty quick.
My kids are not big on watches and only wear them to school. These days, they’d rather receive iPods and cell phones to watches. Buy them a watch and it’s like they’re stuck with some boring piece of junk. Kids!
