Man collects over 400 antique watches
Men's love for watches never stops. A man in Luoyang, Central China's Henan province, has collected more than over 400 watches over the years, icpress.cn reported.
Shi Junjie, 49, an enterprise worker, is fond of collecting antique watches. In his collection, there are watches from both home and abroad, with some that could date back to the early 1900s.
Shi started collecting watches five years ago, thinking the time pieces provide a record of how times change and that they reflect material consumption and the pursuit of quality of life.
