What You Need To Know (A Quick Summary):
- The general public doesn’t appreciate or understand your passion for fine timepieces. We do and so do your fellow readers.
- Send us an email with a brief bio on yourself with some pictures of you and your watch (minimum size is 540 x 340 pixels).
- We’ll publish it on the site and share your passion with the (informed) world.
Let me set the scene for you; you’re at a party/board meeting/special function, etc. and you’re feeling (and looking) good. You’ve lovingly chosen one of your favorite pieces from your collection, selected specifically to complement your attire and convey just the right message to your peers. Understandably you’ve already received several compliments on your exceptional timepiece, not to mention your fair share of admiring (jealous?) stares and then out of nowhere the inevitable question comes:
“Why would you spend that much on a watch? It just tells the time.”
The wind is instantly knocked out of you as though someone has just struck you with great force in the sternum. You take a step back trying to maintain your balance as the world begin to spins around you, your blood literally starts to boil in your veins. You gasp for air, internally dialogging at a furious rate trying to make sense of this completely nonsensical statement:
“Just tells the time? Are they mad!?”
At one time or another we’ve all been there and experienced this most distasteful of scenarios and invariably we’ve all wasted the next 5 to 10 minutes of our life trying to explain the rich tapestry that is our passion. On the rare occasion we’re able to break through and thus welcome another fellow enthusiast into the fold, truly a joyous occasion. More often than not, however, we’re simply met with glassy-eyed, non-comprehending stares or polite (and infuriating) nods.
Here’s what we propose: don’t waste your time telling people who will never understand why you’ve chosen the watch you’re wearing and what significance it holds for you.
Send us an email with a brief biography about yourself and your watch along with some pictures (minimum size is 540 x 340) and we’ll publish them here on the site so that you can share your passion with fellow enthusiasts from around the world who will actually understand and appreciate your story. And feel free to tell us about more than one, if you have a collection than share that too!
As long as you keep sending your stories through we will publish at least one new reader profile every week.
So what are you waiting for, send us an email now and share your passion with the (informed) world!
