Hello! I am new here and wanted to say hello. I am also NEW to this hobby. After many hours watching you tube watch collecting videos and reading as much as I can, I find this hobby very interesting. I am drawn to the craftsmanship, design-particularly mechanical movements. I am fascinated with these little mechanical devices. This forum has been a wonderful place to explore. So I thought I'd join.
As far as my collection is concerned, I only own 2 watches. I have a Witnauher that my mother bought for my father in 1962 for their wedding. I inherited it in 1988. It is non running. I cannot find a repairman to fix it locally. It has been kept in a drawer all these years. My first purchase is a Benrus 39 jewel series 7026 with date in the 6 position. I hope to learn from this community while entering this new hobby.
I thought I'd document this first post with a picture of my first watch purchase I made today.
