I suppose a welcome to the forum is in order. I might suggest a bit more information about you and your watch habit and then post in the Want to buy section but as a newbie here you would not know to do that. Let the ball breaking begin and it is all in good fun here. Part of the welcoming ritual at times.

Some watch pics, or it didn't happen.

Brace for impact and cover yer balls, for they're about to be broken. Well, they surely will be broken when the resident ballbreakers deliver a round of welcoming barrage.

Welcome, Jon. I’d skip the Seiko and look for a Tudor Grantour.

Welcome to the forum, Jon; it's always good to see yet another UK member show up on our shores. Please allow me the pleasure of wishing you yet another happy 37th birthday, mon ami; I myself just "celebrated" my seventeenth consecutive 42nd birthday a couple weeks back, so I'm doubly glad to see you.

As our Illustrious Leader wrote above, we would genuinely love to hear more about you; what you do, what family you may have, and, most importantly, what type of watches are already in your collection. Pictures are always a plus, especially for those who, such as yourself, love to use run-on sentences and random punctuation, something we're taught not to do at a very young age over here. Of course, we're also taught about basic dental health and the consumption of good, healthy food; no fish 'n chips, bangers & mash, or bubble & squeak for us.

Of course, being a conscientious and unassuming Anglophile, I must apologize for the silly little twat we've sent over there for Prince Henry to become enamored with; hopefully, he'll come to his senses and find a nice English girl to settle down with, like William did.

But I digress...

DO feel welcome to Watchlords, sir, and we'll gladly help you with your English language troubles whenever we can.

Toodles,

Don of the Dead

Well, Trump did wonder why they were getting so many people from shithole countries... and last time I went to New York it was like walking onto the set of fucking Downton abbey. A shit ton of displaced Londoners and one token American :)
