I have a lot of questions about (wrist) watches, but I don't see any site on Stack Exchange about watches. I found a watch Q&A on reddit. Quora also as topic about watches. So I wonder if Stack Exchange has a community where questions about watches would be appropriate?

I have tried to find watch site on Current list of Stack Exchange sites (10/15/2017), but I don't find anything about watch.

Also I try to log in to Area 51 to propose a new site, but strangely, I can't ask question there.

So pardon me if I post this question at the wrong site.

    No such site, and I don't think the scope is big enough to justify whole new site just for watches. I mean, what can you ask there? What is the best watch? Identify this watch? I'm afraid this is one of the things SE simply can't have. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Oct 15 '17 at 7:25
  • @Shadow Wizard: Fair enough :) After I think again, I think discuss in forum topic should be more appropriate. PS: I think appropriate question maybe: what is the spec for watch X, How to prevent watch from getting slow by gravity,... – 123iamking Oct 15 '17 at 7:49
  • Oh, I remember what did I want to ask if there is this site: why some watch only provide date only instead of day-date. I mean what the point when see that date is 14 but don't know today is Sunday. – 123iamking Oct 15 '17 at 8:00
  • Sorry, no idea. If you really think such site can stand on its own, feel free to propose a new site in Area 51. :-) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Oct 15 '17 at 8:05
  • There used to be an Area51 proposal for a Clockwork site, but it died due to lack of interest. – goldPseudo Oct 15 '17 at 15:37

Not at the moment.

I'd note though, on many sites - why did "foo" choose to do "bar" this way. There's also (from a quick glance) very few 'collector' or 'object' centeric sites - most sites are more about care and maintenance (Take a look at mechanics) or say watch questions on lifehacks or other sites, like this) for ideas for seed questions.

How do I open/maintain this works better than "why did foo do bar" - since only the designer can really answer.

It does seem potentially viable, especially if you included the mechanical watch communities (complicated devices which need a lot of love) and smartwatch communities in your scope.
