Hello. 


I’ve been interested in mechanical watches for over a couple of decades now (having visited Switzerland and seen some of the most beautiful watches and prices - they’re pretty hard to forget). My knowledge of watches is very limited but I continue to be a quick learner. My father-in-law owns several watches and I’ve taken onboard the task of finding out about them. One of them is a Paul Buhré, another a Bucherer. I know more about the latter than the former but Google and the watch forum (TWF?) message board will no doubt be my friend. 
 

My ideal watch is something like a Lange and Sohne (but price dictates that won’t be happening any time soon). I quite like Mont Blanc stuff so I’m leaning toward one of them at the moment. Or a Bucherer. 
 

Anyway, I hope to learn lots from you whilst hopefully not annoying you with banal questions.

My family lived in Doncaster for a few years in the early 60s, I don`t remember much about the place apart from that we lived on Roman Road :biggrin:

Welcome to the forum!  The main question I need to ask as you are in Doncaster is this, have you ever been to Arkwright's?  If you ever do, give Granville my love.  Don't worry, I'm quite harmless just a little obsession with Sir David Jason. @mach 0.0013137 No need for the nurse/s, I'll self medicate! :thumbsup:
