    New Member & My First Automatic

    Hello everyone I just wanted to introduce myself and share a little bit about myself. I stumbled across this forum last weekend and after browsing around I decided to become a member. I can definitely tell my experience here will be very positive, informative and maybe even expensive. I'm 23 years old and I currently live in Michigan but travel around the United States doing pipeline survey work (home from Minnesota last week, heading to New York on Tuesday). I received my first watch this past Christmas from my girlfriend and have been interested ever since.

    This week I won my first automatic on eBay I was the only bidder, currently my 3rd watch but I have 2 more on the way that I purchased from a fellow member. I stumbled onto this watch on accident I was looking for a Mako but somehow I found a Ray. It came with the box, manual and all the links. The listing was incorrect as it said new without tags, and that the dial was black. The watch shows signs of wear (nothing major) and had already had a couple links taken out the back wasn't tight when I opened the box either, the dial is certainly blue not black but I'm glad it's blue to be honest. Overall I like the watch so far seems to be about the right size, the lume is impressive in my opinion. It's cool to watch the second hand sweep around the watch compared to the visible tick of my other two quartz watches. Sorry for the long winded post I ramble sometimes.

    Wanted to post pictures but my post count isn't hight enough. Hopefully I will reach that point soon :(

    ^ what he said.

    Welcome. I prefer the Ray to the Mako so I think you did well.

    Looks great, nice first choice! I'm new here too but have been into watches for few years. This forum is an awesome resource, you'll learn a ton. I've learned more in the past 3 months than the past 3 years combined. Be careful though this place will only feed the addiction!
