Guys I respect as collectors are guys that chase down vintage references vs guys like me that can access watches.


Maybe Iím wrong just how I feel.


Are you a collector or a connoisseur? Is there a distinction?
If i collect pieces of shits of various sizes and colors, i'm still a collector. Doesn't make me a connoisseur unless, for example, I taste them all.

Ignoring the defintions, for me a connoisseur is someone who knows very much about his respective faible and is enjoying all the hidden gems. These people tend to collect vintage and are extremly interested in independant watchmaking. So a pretty small circut of people and they give a shit about whats currently in. ;)
