new watch N00b

Postby tep » March 8th 2017, 9:31am

I just got an email saying I need to introduce myself and to not be a troll :-)

OK, here goes.

I'm a dive watch fan, not fanatic. I'm a N00b in that I only own 4 watches.

I like classic Seikos, I have an original 1985 Seiki Pepsi dive watch, 2 Invictas, and a new Seiko Solar Diver (just picked it up in Tokyo). My next watch (next time I'm in Tokyo) will probably be a Citizen Eco-drive.

My "Unicorn watch", if money was no object, would be the original 1986 "Big Tuna" Seiko Divers 1000m with the titanium case and ceramic bezel guard. My dive instructor had one, it was massive and very cool.

I wear my watches because *I* like them, don't really care if other people like them. I like seeing pics of other peoples' watches.

I'm here to learn about watches; I'm an engineer and fascinated by gears and clocks since I was a kid.

Welcome to the forum. Good intro post. There have been several watch forums hacked in the past year and posting is one way to confirm you are real member. We have a lot of Seiko information on this forum as well as links to other Seiko sources.

Four good watches isn't being a "noob" - it's being a reasonable collector. Welcome.
