    Newbie first post..hello

    So I've got say something. It's my first post.
    I'm a long time Seiko junkie who's starting my Swiss march...there goes the neighborhood.

    Does everyone's friends who aren't into watches think your crazy when you talk about the watches you like/want to get and their not cheap.

    "Hey, why not just go to Ross Dress For Less, they have some really nice ones next to the high end cologne"..haha

    Nah...
    I started collecting watches in 1986. I started collecting baseball cards in 1972 and comic books in 1976. I have collected lots of stuff over the years. So those who know me know I have a disease.
    No one really knows what a Patek Philippe/ Zenith/ Sinn/ Hamilton watch is. They know Rolex. They know Seiko. So no one bothers me about how pricy my "real watches" are.
    They may be afraid to ask!

    Welcome! The more you post, the more you feel tempted to pick up a new piece!

    My family think something might be wrong but my friends don't wear watches so I don't subject them to this, that's why I'm here!

    99.99% of us have friends and family who aren't into watches. Which is why we have all these great watch forums. Welcome aboard...

    Welcome aboard ! Most people just don't get watch collecting. To them it's either a $5 quartz or a Rolex with nothing between.
