    My wife is a big fan of John Mayer. I’m a big fan of The Dead & Co.

    Recently I noticed John Mayer wearing an AP on stage, so I did a little googling and found this chart that someone put together of JM’s watch collection. Let’s just say.....holy cow!

    Almost the same number of watches and budget as my watch collection, only I live in Norway so the "," is a decimal separator. Close enough I guess.
    To be serious, these are probably all very nice watches, but the only one I have any slight prior knowledge about and wouldn't mind owning is the COMEX Submariner. I could never spend that amount on a watch, but that is a piece of diving history that I could really appreciate. Even without being particularly interested in Rolex.

    I heard on a watch podcast that Ellen DeGeneres is into watches.

    I have heard tell that John Mayer 'infected' Ed Sheeran to become a watch enthusiast

    from my S-A-M-S-U-N-G S9+ via T-A-P-A-T-A-L-K

    He was in one of the early “Talking watches” episodes from years back. It’s interesting to see how his taste has changed

    I’m not a big Ellen fan but SWMBO is so I was watching her show the other day and noticed the unique shape of Nautilus on her wrist. I knew she was a Rolex fan and with a little looking it seems the Nautilus was an Aquanaut. Turns out she has another Patek with a $300k price tag. Must be nice.

    John Mayer is not a likeable fella, but he's got some interesting watches.

    Reviving this thread to say that John Mayer is an absolute genius in all the ways including guitar. His watch collection and insight into watches is unbelievable. I recommend listening to him talk, not only about watches, but anything really. Dude is a poetic master and his metaphors are second only to his guitar playing….and watch collection lol.

    $1,000,000 for a watch? That is obscene.

    If you want a good laugh and also some sobering reality checks, check out Nico Leonard on YouTube. Here’s a video on Ed Sheehan’s collection

    On the original Magnum P.I., Thomas eventually wore his father's Rolex with a Pepsi dial.

    I would not give that much credit to whom writes " Patek Phillip" or "Patek Phillipe"... talking about watches.
    may be that at the third attempt he could goal the right name (that is "Patek Philippe").
    J.m.o. (Just my opinion).

    So, it seems like gettin' into watches (collecting/general learning about 'em) is one of those "If ya know, ya know" kinda deals till ya DO figure out some stuff (which, to me, is how I feel about the usn & the gathering...). And it feels like I ask the embarrassingly noob-ish questions about which some folks probably roll their eyes, yet I'm attemptin' to get educated, at least... :)

    Similarly, not (yet?) up on the folks who have good taste in (which sure is subjective, imo), or awesome collections of, watches, yet apparently 2 already mentioned here have their own take on the latest sought-after Patek: https://www.gq.com/story/watches-of-the-week-9-4-21

    Just sharin'... :D

    :cool:
