I just had a comment on my Flickr account saying "I invite you to post this pic to ILoveMyWristWatch.com -- rate watches and get yours rated by other watch aficionados."

Ok, I thought - it's my first bit of Flickr spam, taking me to some kind of phishing/ad site. But it's not... it's actually legit.

For the first time in a while the internet has surprised me.

"Don't you love your wristwatch? I love mine. All of them. So I created this website for people like me who want to share their passion with like-minded folks.

Here you can upload a picture of your watch, comment on and rate other people's watches, and get comments and ratings in return from other watch aficionados. It's simple, it's fun, and it's free.

We have Rolex Submariners, Omega Speedmasters, and plastic Kermit watches. It's all for the love of the watch."

Which was more surprising, that it wasn't spam or that there's a niche for absolutely everything?

What was most surprising was that I was surprised - rather than my normal "there's something on the net for everyone".

Well, if a littl thingthat sits on your wrist and happily comes with you everywhere you go gives you so much pleasure, that sounds great!
..they were all very boring watches though!

I would have thought it was spam too.
A friend of mine wears this Homer Simpson watch everywhere. She could be performing on stage or at a wedding and she'd still wear it. :)
