Each watch got a memorial from its proprietor – going from the wistful to the silly.

The project urged individuals to give their wristwatches, each leaving a short depiction of how that watch affected the individual. A portion of the depictions were smart and wistful, portraying its place in a people life – others were enchanting and entertaining, jabbing fun of exes and sweethearts, and the existence botches we’ve all made.

In entirety, the Thousand Watch Project is an awesome glance at what a watch can intend to an individual – without costing much by any means – and we are pleased to say that at this moment, it is gone to the Smithsonian where it will live for eternity.

On a more close to home note, the Thousand Watch Project was quite possibly the most critical ventures I shrouded in the initial a half year of HODINKEE ( see the article here ), and I am excited to say that the watch I gave seven years prior – one of the primary watches I at any point claimed – is incorporated and will likewise live in the Smithsonian. Recollecting that time, and the depiction I wrote in November of 2007, is much more important now.
