Greetings from the South West

Post by Elwood on Mon Sep 26 2016, 14:09

Hi there,
I've just joined and thought it would be polite to introduce myself. I have had an interest in watches for about 30 years (and I'm still the right side of 40), and my interest has escalated in the last 6 or 7 years. I have quite a varied collection of vintage watches which includes automatics, wind ups, quartz and solar powered and yes some of these are digital. A lot of my watches are either American, Swiss or Japanese though I have some Russian watches and UK watches like Smiths. I tend to like older watches though I have become more interested in modern watches recently especially divers and solar powered ones. I am yet to get a diver though have my eye on a number of Seiko models like the 7002 or SKX007/009. I'm looking forward to seeing the opinions of other like minded watch enthusiasts on mechanisms, styles, and the durability of different watches. I'm not bad at playing around with watches and have taken the odd one to bits and hope that others with a bit more technical prowess share their skills as I do tend to read up on watch repairs/modifications then give it a go. I'm quite laid back and am a firm believer in each to their own. If you haven't fallen asleep already by what I've written above, I'm guessing you are definitely a watch enthusiast...

Hi Elwood, welcome to the forum, i hope you enjoy your stay here.
you cant go wrong with your thoughts on the Seiko 7002 or 007/009, they are super watches for the money although the prices seem to be going up at an alarming rate
i have just modified a Seiko 009 [ one of many i have done] check it out in the watch modification section
see if you can post some pics of your current watches..............everyone loves pics Wink

all the best Bruce

Hello Elwood a warm welcome to you . I too like the Seikos as you will see I have started to post some of my collection in the Japanese section . As Bruce said 007 and 009's are great value for money but get in now as prices are certainly rising.
I hope you enjoy it here and look forward to seeing some of your collection Smile

Cheers John, I really didn't need any encouragement to buy more watches but now you're telling me I will save money buying one now rather than later I'm buying one ASAP. Well if it works like that when my wife sees a bargain in the shops I don't see the difference

It's not your fault John. It's the watches, they made me do it. Hahaha
