So looking around other forums and other parts of here as well I realized something. F11 is the least biased and least snobbish forum I have seen about watches. Some places people look down at you if you don't have the newest model or have the....my watch is more expensive than yours views. You get people fighting over things like VC vz Patek or Omega vs Rolex.
You post questions and they get ignored because....what you don't know that about the brand or model? Noob. Or they just think your watch is not good enough to warrant a response.
But here...sure some argue about marriage watches or originality. But by and large we all accept all vintage watches. We seek out learning and help those who don't know. We don't care if it is the best condition. We don't care if you are posting a watch that others would scoff at in those snob groups. We look at the watch as the watch is and help where we can.
By no means is this a group of watch hugging hippies wanting to just share the love. It is more of a group of watch enthusiasts who thirst for more knowledge and to preserve the past. To advocate for the preservation and promotion of the skilled watchmaking arts of the past watchmakers that is embodied in each piece.
No this is not me trying to brown nose or make up for something I did wrong. I was just thinking and wanted to share those thoughts.
Way to go F11!
