Have you ever had someone say this to you? Maybe it is a small watch brand, or even a
big watch company, and someone asks you "what kind of watch is that?" ..You tell them
what it is, but then they say "never heard of them." Shocked Smile It's a funny thing that often seems
to happen. So has this ever happened with you before? Have any stories?

watch collecting is considered something waaaaay off the beaten path with the general public.

Other than Bulova, Timex, Seiko, Citizen and Rolex I doubt 95% of the population is aware of other brands.

Considering the thousands (hundred thousands?) of brands and label brands, there is no way even WISs like us could know them all.

Ive probably only seen 30 brands in person in my life which is a small % of what's out there so that gives you an idea of how obscure brands can be.
