Yesterday’s post was pretty pessimistic.  However, it’s not all doom and gloom.  So here’s some optimism.

  • Watches are made better today than they ever have been before.
  • The sheer volume and value of the watches sold in the last several years all but ensures that servicing them will be a viable job for many years to come.
  • So many fantastic watches have already been made that even if no more were produced, we could all have something nice.
  • The internet is still progressing in a direction that will make it fun to collect and talk about watches no matter how screwed up the industry itself gets.
  • Huge leaps, especially in sales and distribution but also in production, can still be made that can change everything in a very short period of time.

Ok that’s a few off the top of my head.  What do you guys think?
