New found certainly having to eat my words!!

Post by Gdeluca on Wed Mar 07 2018, 16:03

Hi everyone,

My name is Grant, I have recently only 'discovered the interest of watches. I am happy to admit I was one of who I am sure there are many that thought along the lines of 'why do I need a watch, my phone tells me the time, or why on earth would spend so much money on a tiny clock strapped to your wrist.

Well, it's safe to say after many hours of being shown videos and pictures and a little information behind what makes a watch as complex or as beautiful as it Is I have completely changed my mind. Recommended by a friend of mine, who I believe it quite a prestigious member on here he set me about finding my first watch. Prone to being quite heavy handed and having large wrists he suggest I start with a g-shock, as I understand it, the staple to most watch collections. A blue bezzel tide master. After a few months of owning that and becoming used to wearing a watch regularly I started chatting about watches with him again.......fueled on a recommendation from him again I found myself a Vostock n1 European edition 192/500. Rose gold plated with the original Russian 2432 movement.
Buying this watch seems to have awakened a lust and desire for watches I didn't know I had and I am so keen to learn more....see more and begin a collection.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Grant and welcome to the Forum. Very Happy


Sounds like you have been getting good advice already. Hopefully you will see other watches on the Forum that will give you ideas about adding to, evolving and enjoying your collection.
