    Hi From Central Canada

    My name is Bill Smith I am at the tail end of my 30s and I live in greater Toronto. Been collecting watches off and on for about 10 years. My collection at present is compact: a Fortis Cosmonaut Diver, Zeno Army Diver, vintage hand wind Longines Tank watch with a gold filled case, an early 1950s Omega Seamaster with a bumper wind movement and a mid 1960s Omega Seamaster Deville on a black custom Croc strap with deployment clasp.

    My other hobbies include pen collecting, photography, hiking, skiing, reading, usual guy stuff.

    Cheers

    Bill

    Hi Bill,
    With your collection having some classic stuff, you might like to drop into the Vintage Forum for a visit.
    We love pictures as well.

    Hi Bill:

    You have some nice watches there. Welcome. I see you're around the GTA. How about that weather we're getting?

    I live out in Oakville, I am a transplant from Montreal courtesy the second migration just after Referendum #1. Still cheer for the Habs.

    I had a ball this winter, the skiing was amazing.

    You bet! We had more than 500 cm of snow in Quebec this winter (usually somewhat more than 300).
