Hi everyone.

 

I'm a watch enthusiast from the Greater London area. I'm very much a quartz guy, and particularly the big two Japanese brands make up circa two-thirds of my not huge (circa 15) watch collection.

 

I've been a watch enthusiast (in terms of recognising watches as a hobby of sorts) for approx 10 years.

 

Up until the last year or so I've mainly seemed to gravitate towards 'tool' or 'tough' watches of various types. However, I am now increasingly looking (and drooling over, lol) more refined pieces.

 

I've previously experimented with owning mechanicals but my experiences have been frustrating to date so currently I don't own any. I am however still open, in theory at least, to a further try. Maybe I just haven't found the right one yet?!

 

I had a period of time when I ws obsessed with G Shocks, and still retain three, although tbh none get much wrist time these days.

 

Pics are of some of my current collection (chronologically presented in terms of purchase date).

 

I look forward to making many new online friends here, and talking about our shared love of watches.06ac630b10ae7b8de6f2202464561156.jpg35dd3b5fb726695da9f08e076b9d73b0.jpgc143b05015840e680119fcf67f7ce930.jpg52b0e8af171e69699970906d9d5adaf2.jpgf7f98956c6437ca40bf6f261deba0c52.jpg7487935ec172d2f934c111ceaf36fd6b.jpg77b061901672b85e233328fd9e425a30.jpg775618a5ebf87825c800f264ac42ff1c.jpg2c368cce6dc31c26fec74e10a649cfb0.jpgf57470b3461d997e358cb9c19fed2c6c.jpg

Welcome.  Have a look at the Seiko 7A28 / 38 / 48 range if you like quartz and fancy something vintage (1982-88)

Thanks Scott. I just had a quick look on Google (will have a better look later). I really like the 70s/80s style bracelets :yes:

Nice to see some good pics of decent watches from a new Forum member. Welcome and hope you will contribute more posts in due course.:)

Thank you so much sir. I am very sure I've arrived at a great place to discuss my watch obsession, and, judging by a post reply to a thread I made in 'Japanese Watches' (by @kevkojak), a place where I'll learn a lot too.

Hi, and welcome to the forum! Nice collection! I can see you're going to fit in well here...I also have a liking for Seiko and Citizen. [emoji106]
Thanks! That's very good to hear. I look forward to speaking with you further around this wonderful forum.

Some very nice watches, I'm envious of that lovely Seiko Sportura GMT.  
Haha, thank you!

And thanks for your replies re the Citizen Chronomaster. I think one would certainly need to handle this watch in person before committing to a purchase.
