    Lurker into the light...

    Time to introduce myself after being a LONG TIME lurker... I've always held a fascination for watches (had a swatch collection in high school). I've gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from the forum and now look to be a full-fledged contributing member. My first "real" watch was the Seiko SKX173. I soon sold that in favor of the SKX171. A few Seikos, a Tissot and Hamilton later I was able to purchase my grail watch - Rolex Sea Dweller. This was in self-congratulations to some life/career accomplishments. After two years it still seems hard to believe I own this watch, and I'm still in awe of it. I know it will never leave my collection. My first introduction to this model was at a local sports event where I complimented the guy next to me on his "nice sub." He quickly and nicely corrected that it was in fact a Sea Dweller.

    After years of forum reading I now have my hit list for wanted pieces, including a long-awaited incoming Omega SMP 2254.50. I continue to be thankful for the existence of this place where my passion and obsessive detail for watches is matched and often exceeded! Here's the current collection (minus the Hamilton):

    Yes definitely a missing piece. I've always been drawn to the Omega 3211.30 but some Chronoswiss look pretty sweet too. Right now I can't think of much with the SMP incoming.

    Coincidence that you have some forum favourites there or did you take the advice of the people?!

    Yes MUCH ADVIVE gleaned from this forum in guiding purchases. I've been a lurker for years (somehow I ended up creating a new account). My modded SKX was done with the help of research here, and I love it!

    Welcome, I'm a newer member myself. Great Sea Dweller, one of my favorite Rolex's. Be careful, as you well know these guys are enablers. Some of their posts cause my watch-tourettes to kick in, and my hunt expands as my money diminishes!!!
