  • Introduction

    Hi everyone,

    I thought a quick introduction was in order. Real name is Scott, I have an interest in watches (obviously) fine Scotch (currently drinking Ardbeg 10) and getting outdoors! I have owned over 40 watches from various brands; but currently own just 3. I tend to favour classic and simple watches, nothing over 45mm
    Favourite watch = Speedmaster pro
    Favourite brand =......Seiko! Currently anyway, so I know I will fit in here
    Fetish = Nylon straps
    Hate = Rubber straps
    Goal = To learn a lot more about Vintage watches and learn how to avoid inauthentic items, so hopefully the more experienced members will help me out (Think I may have been burnt before but not 100% sure)
    Really looking forward to participating, learning and making some more friends.

    evening mate and welcome :thumbup:

    if you were going to own only 3 watches you couldnt do much better. there is a wealth of knowledge here and a stack of crap a mile high , biggest shovels seem to be owned by the forrest hill mob!

    enjoy and look forward to seeing your hobby become a full blown addiction

    p.s we have all been burnt at some point, this is how most end up finding this wee forum.

          G'day Scott........... Welcome

          Only one word of advice... keep an eye on Hman
          He means well in the extreme, but he's a fanatic
          Started me on this dreaded habit with 2 watches
          Now I have got just short of 40 and I blame him

          You may have just 3 watches now but watch out!
          This 'things' really contagious and pleasurably so.

          But you'll find this Forum's got some great WIS's
          And you are certain to make some great friends.

          Again,welcome........... Will 8-)
          The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

                  Welcome Scott,

                  I've tried to get down to only 3 watches but this place is full of enablers and it is a hopeless cause I think Sounds like you already know the best of them too so get ready for a new watch box or two Omega, Seiko and vintage watches are right up my alley too BTW :thumbup:

                    Welcome Scott, Your 'burned' inference sounds intriguing. Tell us more. There are a lot of us been there I'm sure :roll: If I can offer you some advice as it looks as though you might enjoy the amber nectar. DON'T DRINK AND BID

                        Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Yeah, don't drink and bid is good advice Captain, although I do indulge in both, simultaneously every now and then :D

                        Will, I did once have 12 watches at one time, but found I only wore my favourites. I can't think of a "NEED" for more than 3 also not having a large disposable income helps to keep the watch purchases in check. I am always eyeing up the next purchase though

                        Watch out for Harlan,lol ok..... find myself checking out his watches almost daily. Not sure my liver has regenerated H but it is recovered enough to drink some more

                        I like a lot more vintage watches than modern, but I find shopping for them daunting. I have possibly bought franken watches in the past, although I don't necessarily dislike them as long as I know what they are. If I was going to add more than 3 watches they would likely be vintage, but have a lot to learn still. I'm quite interested in learning about CYMA, I don't know anything about them but they look nice.

                        Thanks Brad, I'm sure I will.
