Watches I Want

blog gucci watchOf course it’s impossible to come back from Baselworld without wanting to bring back a watch.  Especially since I lost my new Rolex there (long story for another post).

Like last year, I really wanted to come home with a Gucci. And, as  I was able to procure a vintage version of the acrylic Gucci watch, I sort of did.

The Club Campus is reasonably priced, and I love the design — especially the mix of Roman and Arabic numbers.

But these guys are also very nice. And so is this one. Why are there so many beautiful watches and why can;t I have them all?
