Not a clue!!! But I know its true for me to...
Watches... uhhh just avoid those
if your not already hooked that is.
Wow, I think knife people share a similar brain wavelength or something. I have always been a fan of watches and I take note of any nice watch I see. I have a neat little coleman watch that has a thermometer in it (it's highly effective at telling me the average temperature of myself and the air combined). I also have a nice Rolex "duplication" that I picked up in Italy. It may not be an original but is still a fine piece of equipment and from talking to a "duplication" expert she said it was one of the finest ones that she had seen. If I had the money I would have a nice watch.
I think Knives, flashlights, and watches are all connected by the fine metalic craftsmanship that goes into them. At least that seems to be what does it for me. I don't think I would be attracted to a flashlight made of wood or plastic. I also like the quality that goes into how the light is created and focused.
That reminds me of the metal pill bottle I use to carry around on my keychain. I never had anything in it but I was just in love with the way the threading from the cap fit so perfectly into the base and formed a near seamless metal cylinder. It was very neat. I ended up taking it off because it kind made me look like a pill popping druggy. I guess craftsmanship mixed with design and function all play a part.
