Hi, new on here.
We all love watches, and that's why we are on here. Mosts of us have an addiction, but our addictions varie. I will tell you mine, and then perhaps you can share yours with the rest of us.
I started off by buying and selling vintage watches, and then couldn't help buying the odd new bargain watch for myself. As time has gone on I have learned more and more about constitutes a good watch. The movement, the strap, the case, the window, and the bezel etc. So, my thrill comes from buying a watch I like the look of, that is well built and meets all the criteria of a good watch, and is at a price that makes me smile. For example, I purchased a Parnis 200m dive watch, with AR sapphire crystal, a Miyota movement, and brilliant stainless strap, 316L stainless case, a ceramic bezel, and a beautiful guilloche dial, for £82. Granted, this is about my best bargain. In my opinion the watch is absolutely stunning (picture enclosed).
I have no interest in luxury branded watches, although I appreciate their designs, because I am happy to wear a nice homage (not fake of course). That said, if money no were object I would love to own a very expensice pieces for the hell of it.
