I found this forum a little over a year ago while shopping for a first mechanical. I knew only that watches held an allure for me, and that there was such a thing called an automatic. In the 14 months since I've learned just a tremendous amount, and have a small collection I'm really happy with. I am drawn (I have learned) to affordable pieces in classic designs with a little bit of history to them, and what you see below is what I've come up with. The other information I've gathered in 14 months is too much to write down, so I'll just say thank you so much to this community. I visit every day, and love it so much.
(Next thing I'll tackle is how to take decent photos.)
