I've read these forums for quite a few years now, and have finally decided to make my first post.
I first became interested in watches about seven years ago, when I was gifted a Seiko Premier kinetic moon phase. Shortly after that, I visited an antique shop and became mesmerised by a Poljot Okeah. Sadly, at that time I didn't have the funds to buy it, but it was researching the Okeah that first led me to reading these forums.
Happily, in last couple of years I've found myself in a position where I've been able to pursue this interest, and have amassed what I think is a half decent collection. It comprises of the aforementioned Okeah, a 38mm Poljot Strela, another Seiko, an Oris, a Glycine Combat Sub, a vintage Roamer Mustang, and 2 Omegas.
Having accumulated quite a lot of watches in a fairly short space of time I've now promised myself (and my wife) that I won't be making any more purchases in the near future. However, my 35th birthday is coming up in the middle of next year, and I have in mind to get a vintage watch from my birth year (1984) to mark that. Something up to the value of about $3000. If anyone has any suggestions for that, I'd love to hear them!
