Another Noob...

Postby WUS-Outcast » March 26th 2019, 11:42am

Hi and thanks for having me.
I am a long time watch collector; predominantly vintage Seiko, Citizen and Chinese mechanical watches.
My tenure at WUS was curtailed so Ron Good(AlbertaTime) recommended I try out this fine forum.

I'm looking forward to becoming a productive member here.

I did.

All, please welcome Peter.

Peter is very knowledgeable about my area of interest: vintage Chinese watches, and he was already knowledgeable before I knew anything. In fact, his smart and perceptive collection is a major reason I got interested in the first place.

Anyone Ron recommends is welcome here. We also have a sister forum, bestdamnwatchforum, the second after doxadick crashed the original.

Hi, Peter. All the best; hope you enjoy the digs here.
I bought a dive watch from them that literally had “dive” in the name. The instructions said not to dive with it - it was only meant to LOOK like a dive watch. It was also fast by more that a minute per day. Garbage. Never again. - IWG buyer on Reddit

Indeed; welcome, Mr. Outcast, goddamn it. There are few fellows who can provide better bona fides than A-T.

Goddamn it.

Welcome peter. Finally someone who can provide a reference for AT!

I always wondered about Ron ;-)

Cool. Most of us have been banned from a forum. Welcome to the land of misfit toys.
But
Most of our members have some knowledge of all th bs you had to put up with.
We look forward to your knowledge.
AT is more than kind of cool.

With the word noob in the title I waited a day or so for the pineapples to really start flying before checking this thread... I’m glad to learn that you are a knowledgeable and solid new member, instead of an actual pita noob on his way to the pine barrens.

Welcome, Peter; I look forward to your posts.

Thank you for the endorsement Ron but you long ago passed me with your avid interest in all things Chinese! I haven't been to China but have come pretty close through your wonderful travelogs :D
