It becomes second nature. I spent 3 hours at a parents' evening on Tuesday and found myself looking at all their watches. Didn't see anything I'd swap for my Nomos, though...and I don't imagine a single one of them would have recognised it! :lol:

I do this all the time too, whether it be on TV or a picture or in real life.I love trying to work out what the model is etc

It helps when the person wearing the watch is a celeb...google does the job usually.

Most recent example was Adam Levine ( lead singer for Maroon 5)..saw him wearing a timepiece which caught my eye and it seems a few others jugding by the number of posts created asking to id his watch! Turned out to be a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 6263....very nice!
