Hello from a new member!

Hi all, just joined up and am another one from TZ-UK (Sharky).

I am a member of most of the major watch forums under either Sparky or Sharky usernames.

I live in the UK in Bristol and have been a watch enthusiast for around 10 years.

Here are most of my humble little collection:

IWC 3741:

I hope to be a regular contributor to this forum

Welcome. Is your weather as bad as Detroit?
We called another exterminator to take care of the rat problem in the basement. This one hasn't come out either.

Welcome to Watchlords; the joint's more fun than a human being should be allowed to have. And the food's much better.

3741's awesome!
