Newcomer to this forum and all thing watches really.
I've never been massively interested or even aware of the variety of watches & manufacturers until recently.
I have a Tag Heur Aqua Racer chrono from a few years back which I had massively neglected and left sitting in a drawer un worn. It had stopped so I took it to a watchmaker to have a look. I did not quite know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised when he handed my watch back after 5 mins after changing the battery.
I was a little confused and intrigued as well as I had assumed it was an automatic watch. So that led me down the google rabbit hole to here!!
After hours of searching and going off on various tangents I've decided I like the Pilot style watches and the vintage diver style.
I decided today to make my first Alpina purchase in a Startimer Pilot 44 AL-525B4S6.
Cant wait to receive it!!!
