Cynicism and watch collecting

I recently watched a TED Talk by Professor Jamil Zaki, a Stanford neuroscientist. Worth watching the talk, but I wanted to explore a few of the concepts he discussed. In particular he talked about the learnings from a study of two Brazilian fishing villages which I found particularly fascinating, and which I wanted to connect with watch collecting.

Sell more, buy less

I watched two seemingly unrelated TED talks, but I thought they were interestingly connected; One tackles how to get rid of things you already have, and the other offers advice around minimising the acquisition of new things. As watch collectors, this seems to summarise a conundrum we face daily!
