    Greetings from Ireland

    My Da was an avid collector and I wore his automatic dive watch Tissot after he died 5 years ago.That Tissot is over 50 years old and last week I brought it in for repair.An interest sparked in me.At home I had a small box of "Junk Watches" my Da had so I decided to go through it.Mostly free offer watches etc but in there I found another Tissot.This one a wind up one and in great nick.I got the strap adjusted and I'm in love.Part of me feels a connection to my desceased Dad and part of me wants to exploe the world of these amazing watches.I 'll attach a pic so if anybody in the know can help me with the model,year etc ,I would be very grateful.I may be calling this Tissot "Watch Number 1" of a new found passion!

    Welcome to the forum! There is no watch better than a watch inherited from a loved one! Congrats on your new watches and your new connection with your dad! Hold onto your wallet...

    Welcome to WUS Gordon, hope you enjoy your time here. Tell your wallet to get ready though - it's sure to get a good bashing.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    Fáilte go WUS.

    Don't let these guys convince you to buy more watches - they suck you in and before you know it, you'll be on Patrick Street busking for 'watch money'...
