Please allow me to introduce myself...

For over a year after I split from my wife I didn’t wear a watch at all, she bought me a really nice Citizen early on in our relationship which er was lovingly engraved :huh: Loved that watch but let’s just say it had memories and even though I still have I can’t wear it. 

Last Christmas I decided to take the small annual bonus from work and treat myself to a Tissot III automatic. I had always previously had quartz watches but I wanted an automatic for that sweeping hand movements. I still find myself staring at the sweeping second hand. 

It went from there. I think I have about 16 watches at present (one more in en route) Tissot, Seiko, Orient, Bulova, Vostok, Hamilton, Festina, Rotary. Dress, Diver, Military, Sport, Chronograph, quartz, manual, automatic I’ve got a range. I have a watch for every occasion. I even have an Apple Watch (which I rarely wear!)

I told myself I would limit myself to one watch this Christmas, an Orient Ray II. Then I was casually browsing and saw a Hamilton Pan Europ way above my usual budget but I loved it, then I got the Christopher Ward Sale email. :ooops: 

I’m very protective of them  I noticed a very small scratch on my SNK805 and  my Vostok Amphibian got a small scuff on the acrylic face and :jawdrop1:

There have been mistakes and these are usually the result of rash late night eBay purchases. The Oris Frankenwatch from India (Don’t ask!), the Hanowa without a working date function (Didn’t read the description!), the Panerai homage I bid on last minute because there were a lot of bids and I liked it (Sea Gull movement that at very least needs servicing) I nearly ended up with a spares or repair Seiko at the weekend (got outbid thankfully) . I have a T W Steel from a clearance at Argos, great price, even for a T W Steel,  just don’t really like it. 


There’s a nice Alpina I had my eye on but no.....for now! :biggrin:

That's what I like to see, a man buying watches impulsively! :laugh:

Welcome to the forum, and say goodbye to what used to be known as 'disposable income' and is now 'the new watch fund'
