    Hello everyone. I would like to make an introduction.

    I have been browsing this site off and on for a while and I finally decided to join. I am quite new to watches, but I really do get enjoyment out of wearing my watches. I prefer automatic watches, but I do have a quartz watch that I am quite fond of. I first got interested in watches when I started professional school. My girlfriend of 6 years told me that I would need a good watch as a professional. I thought it was quite strange. I always used my cell phone for time and never thought of wearing a watch. She gave me a British military-esq Seiko Chronograph and I have been interested in watches ever since. She has excellent taste. This was only a little over a year ago. I then soon realized how vast the watch enthusiasts are. I am a fountain pen user and it is the same with pens too.

    I then bought a Seiko 6105-8110 because I loved the assymetrical shape of the case. It has an original dial and hands, but an aftermarket bezel insert. It also has a nos waffle strap. I am planning on sending it to Jack at IWW for a complete resto in a few monthes. It is running quite fast.

    I also have a Seiko 6139 that is at the jeweller currently getting a case refinishing and a mechanism tune-up. It is all original, but I do not have the original bracelet. I would eventually like to find one of those.

    My most recent purchase was a lightly used Oris Altelier Chronograph. It is my first Swiss made watch and I love it. It has classic styling with a big case. I need quite a big watch as I have a 8 1/4 in wrist.

    As you can see, I enjoy many types of watches whether that be vintage or modern. I look forward to discussing all things watches on this forum.

    -Ben

    Hi Ben,

    Welcome, you've got some nice watches! You should probably have posted this on the Public Forum. Or, maybe you did.
    Greetings from that Island they call Long!
