Resigning from a community I love is a difficult choice.

However, I have always been spoilt and had people kow tow to my selfish ideas and rules, at my business. But, I thought, I should put myself, just for the experience, in other’s shoes…and learn to resign, to leave, any workplace, for good. From today…I will be spending time with watchmakers and watch collectors. No more posting to forums. I feel a GREAT sense of joy and a weight off my shoulders. More later!

Money, influence and becoming “visible”…that’s me.

Beat that for an honest, no bullshit statement.It may be untrue…maybe I am not at all influencial.Maybe I tempered with google and wiki. I do care.I simply cannot convince people who are NOT inside the watch industry, ie my older and close friends how I became who I am. BUT…I am starting an EXPERIMENT.I am going to ASK for FREE watches as of last month. In return, they get exposure from me.This experiment is for 1 year.After that, I don’t need the money…I give it away anyway. My rules are simple, I will talk about watches which are GIVEN to me.I will also talk about watches NOT given to me. The difference, I talk 25% more about those given to me…unfair?I don’t give a shit. Will I destroy the reputations of watches that are...
