    New here, Hi!

    Good morning, New here just wanted to introduce myself. A little while ago I found this site while researching a watch my father has. well yesterday I joined up and will most likely ask some pretty stupid questions. I have a few hobbies, pen making, knife making and now watches. I find myself trolling the department stores, pawn shops and antique markets in search of a fix. This place is kind of like crack but in a good way, unless you ask my wife. Found a couple of deals thus far but I must ask? When will it end! There should be a warning posted before entering this site. I keep telling myself. oh just one more or after this I'm done. Can anyone tell me is there watchoholics anonymous group I can join? Seriously, I'm enjoying this and hope to learn as much as I possible.

    Welcome! ...Oh, and I don't think there is ever an "end" to the madness once you've been bitten by the bug!

    Looking forward to some of your pics!

    Agree with previous posters, the watchaholic group does actually help... to get deeper in the watch world ;)
    “People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
    If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
    If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
    If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
    The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
    Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
    For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
    ― Mother Teresa

    Welcome to a great place. Most everyone here is a watch-a-holic, so don't expect us to help you break the addiction.

    Re: New here, Hi!

    A fellow collector once said coming here for help to cure a watch addiction is like holding AA meetings in a bar. You'll have fun here, and if your wife doesn't like it tell her you aren't in a bar 'til odd hours chasing skirts. There are way worse hobbies than this - you can't get speeding tickets, the storage is easy and relatively small, and there's usually resale value.

    ....and don't mind us - we are a bit sarcastic sometimes but it's meant to be funny. Give as you get and you'll do just fine!

    Welcome to the forum Keith and wish you many good years of collecting! Ah well, it's probably a disease which you wouldn't want to get cured of ... do share your watch pics when you get the time.
    A few of this and some of the other ...
