The Car and Watch "Thing" Explained...

Recently, HODINKEE posted an interview with A. Lange & Söhne CEO, Wilhelm Schmid, from the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este which I found to represent and explain some of the sentiments behind cars, watches, and the mental and emotional attachments we collectors share. At times, I find it difficult to describe the "why" we do what we do to those who don't share these passions, or even understand collecting anything, for that matter.  Rather than copy and past the article, I figured I'd go the old SEO route and link to the interview instead.  enJOY:
