EP10 – #Wristalk – (@myhumblecollection)

In today’s episode of #wristalk we have @myhumblecollection as our guest. While others collect watches from their favourite brands, or vintage watches etc. Our guest today surrounds himself with watches which he finds simple – a very ‘Humble’ approach indeed. From a person who only liked watches for their aesthetics, he grew fonder and studied more about horology and its community. This is episode 10 of #wristalk, we hope you enjoy it.

Watches have different meaning to different people: they’re a work of art, a means of expression, an achievement, something to tell the time. For me, it’s all of the above and more.

How it all started?

It started for me when my wife got me a watch for my 24th birthday. I always liked watches before but never got in too deep. After that gift I started to do my research and found that there were others like myself, who had a love for the horology hobby via Instagram. The rest is history.

What was your first watch? –

My Fossil CH 2687, which was a gift from the Missus.

What is the focus of your collection?

The focus of my collection is simplicity. There’re a few pieces that have a little fluff that I like, but simplicity is key in my collection.

What was the last watch you bought?

My last watch purchase has been too long, way too long. It was the Fossil CH2952 back in February, I purchased from Amazon.

Which is your favourite watch in your collection? 

I might sound a little cliche but they’re all my favourite. I’m just enjoying this hobby and my humble little collection of art.

What is the dream watch? 

My grail of all grails is the Philippe Dufour Simplicity. A piece more reachable though, would be the Tudor Black Bay Blue. I’ll leave the Simplicity for when I want to take my collection up another notch.
