My love for watches started way back in the early 2000s; the world was much different then. Financially, I was beginning to do well; I was young, married, and had two children and another on the way, but I was not at a point in my life where I could justify spending extra cash on a new luxury timepiece. Regardless, I started researching watches. I wanted to mark this period; life was good. I was able to take care of my family, and I wanted a watch to remind me of this time. My research was primarily done by reading magazines such as Dupont Registry. No one in my family had ever bought an expensive watch, nor did I have a smartphone, Instagram, or Hodinkee to read and research. YouTube was not yet an available platform to just search "insert watch name here" for a review.
