Greetings from the UK

Greetings from the UK

Postby PickleB » November 14th 2015, 3:53pm

Hello all

I learned of your forum this morning amongst all the goings on about the sale of EddieP's TZ-UK forum. I also discovered that your owner and Eddie correspond and decided that this must be a good place to talk about watches etc.

In case any of you are wondering about my location, the M25 is the highway ring around London and Junction 6 is almost due South of the centre (near Caterham).

I am retired and single so I have plenty of time for browsing, but fear not, I will not be swamping you with trivia.

Watch wise I started with an affection for Omega passed on from my father and the rest of the family. The sword hand SMPs are something of a thing with me. Nothing too extreme, but I own two in titanium and a couple of others.

I've since taken a liking to Sinn watches and my latest acquisition is an EZM 3F. I really like the countdown bezel.

Looking forward to exploring your forum.

Welcome Pickled. Do you mind if I call you Tom as I had something of a fondness for a guy called George in the Navy?

Hidey-ho!

Pics are always appreciated.

I like the influx of UK folks. Their national sense of humor is unsurpassed.

That's no more and no less than I was expecting...having read:

I found the place very stuffy and dreary. Not unlike Old Blighty herself, I imagine. But worse.

Just had a look and I've yet to take one of the 3F, so here's one of the 2 that I bought:

I really think we need to screen these guys first. What the hell are we are supposed to do with an English middie??

Someone give him a mop and bucket and see if he can be useful :-)

In the mean time:

Q: What do Navy Midshipmen always get on their final exams?
A: Drool.

Q: Did you hear about the Midshipman who won a gold medal at the Olympics?
A: He liked it so much he got it bronzed.

Welcome Pickle!

The most dangerous thing in the world is a Midshipman with a map and a 45.

Never thought I'd welcome a pickle.

Pipe aboard.
