  1. Hello everyone, although I joined a little while back I have yet to introduce myself. I have quite a busy job and a young family so have jumped in and out of the forum occasionally. I have always liked watches but my obsession really took hold about 3&1/2 years ago. I got very ill and had a lot of time in bed recovering. It was during this time I started browsing the internet looking at watches for sale then made the natural progression to you tube reviews. Since then I have built up a small collection whilst(dissembling my bank balance) it's funny, I ask myself the question is it better to have money and start your perfect 3 watch collection journey not knowing what you want or have to save up knowing what your perfect 3 piece collection is? I have already asked a question on this forum and was blown away by the detail and pictures that came in the response(thank you Always watching &Spinynorman). I look forward to browsing this forum in the future and hopefully will tear myself away from the countless you tubers I am subscribed to. I am in the Beckenham Kent area.
  2. Thank you for the information on Lator, very in-depth (great). Will take your advice on the gallery and introduce myself in the relevant section. Wanted to attach one more picture. Thanks again. https://photos.app.goo.gl/4CdUMcpVAcyw1cuW7 https://photos.app.goo.gl/4CdUMcpVAcyw1cuW7
  3. Sorry if my question was a little direct with no background of myself, I am new to forums and on reflection can see how I came across rude. I have always liked watches as far back as I can remember but after becoming very ill at the beginning of 2018 I had a lot of time at home recovering and found myself falling down the rabbit hole of online you tubers and could not shake the monkey. My first purchase was a Certina DS Action Diver powermatic 80 and since then have acquired another four automatic watches, a quartz CWC SBS and just recently the self winding Lator. Purely unintentionally my collection is of a Diver watch genre. In around three and a half years my tastes have changed (sold a couple on the way)and feel like I have come full circle to that first automatic purchase. I am subscribed to a lot of online you tubers and spend a lot of time(to my wife's annoyance) watching them. I thought I might branch out and try a forum but feel I might have got off on the wrong foot. All I use is my android phone and did try to send a picture but unsuccessfully. My Lator is almost identical to the pictures you sent Always"watching", as in the top picture mine has the 17 jewels text at the bottom but has the bezel of the lower pictures. It has an engraved circle at 12 o'clock rather than a indent for pip. The case back is also similar to the bottom pictures but the words are within a circular border and it has 20ATM in the centre of the case back. Thanks for replying.
  4. Can anyone give me some information about this watch please.
