    New to WUS & starting my collection.

    G'day WUS

    I just thought a short introduction was in order before I begin the random questions and asking for advice. I found this site quite by accident when looking for watch info and things have quickly spiralled out of control lol. I have been reading and learning for a few months and I am now ready to enter the fray.

    I am born & bred in Melbourne Australia and have Swiss wife thus the username. My collection so far is all quartz watches that I purchased in my early to mid twenties based mostly on looks more than anything else. Now at the start of my 30s and after getting the house & wedding out of the way I have a little more spare change to purchase some lovely Swiss mechanical watches. One small thing I am pretty proud of given my geographical handicap is I have purchased all my watches in Switzerland, this though I think is about to come to and end.

    Anyway that's about it from me, thanks in advance.

    A Swiss made wife, eh? I guess if you have your kids in Switzerland they'll (just) qualify for Swiss made as well, LOL

    Welcome aboard! What have you got your eye on?

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

    lol Domo probably can't call them swiss made but maybe swiss inspired design?

    I am currently looking for a couple of watches I can wear in the office (suit 80% of the time) and one for the weekend.

    If anyone has recommendations for watch dealers in Melbourne or other parts of Australia that would be much appreciated.

    I think there is a kickstarter type outfit called Melbourne Watch that has some affordable, good looking watches. You can search here for the company.

    Not just a Kickstarter type outfit but a forum member and sponsor who started a brand of watches and then used kickstarter to get funding.
