My fellow WIS,
A year ago tomorrow I discovered the wonderful forum that is WatchUSeek, and with that began a journey which I will continue for as long as I can strap on a watch. When I began, my collection contained 6 pieces: two Invictas, a Torgoen Pilot, two G-Shocks and the Momentum M1 that my first post was about.
Since then, the Torgoen, AWG100, and Invicta Pro diver have been sold, and replaced multiple times over, for a grand total of I believe 17 in and out, and 10 in to stay.
Ive seen some truly great pieces stay for a short time my box, and from the Hamilton Frogman, to the Ecozilla, to the Binnacle Anchor they have all helped me figure out what I really like in a watch. In the past three months I have done a minor sell off and bought the two watches I would call “attainable grails,” the Bathys and the TSAR (which will be here tomorrow). Those two, along with my Invicta, my BM6400, my SNK809, my Deep Blue, my M1 and my SKX007 are my keepers, and I can thank the forum for introducing all but two of them to me.
More important than the watches though, have been my interactions with fellow members around here. Off the top of my head, Griff (zippofan), Olly (whatmeworry), Ross (foxglove), Toby (jason recliner), Milton (mendo08), Ramon (rm07pr) and of course Ernie Rommers have all been instrumental in my enjoyment of the site. Without all of you, this site wouldn’t be nearly as much fun as it has been for me, and I really want to thank you.
And now, on to the giveaway. I bought this MM homage from a well known seller back in November (I think), but in the past few months haven’t worn it at all, so its off to a WIS who will give it the wrist time it deserves.
It hacks, handwinds, is extremely accurate (like 2s per day on the wrist) and best of all has a GMT function. It is my small way of saying thank you to the forum, and I will randomly select a winner from the replies to this thread, one week from this moment.
Thank you to all WUS members for the time here, and I hope that the next year will be just as fun!
AND THE WINNER IS!!!!!
PM me with your info, and thank you all for a great first year of WISdom.
