    Quick introduction and thank you!

    Hey folks! Just a quick thank you for all the information compiled in this excellent forum! I've been lurking for a little over a month and I've learned a ton, all culminating in me placing my very first order for an automatic watch (2 actually!!)!

    Name's Sam and I'm in Massachusetts. Previously I've only owned Quartz watches and mostly crappy ones. So much so that I had given up on watch wearing and just used my cell phone. Just recently however I decided to give the watch thing another go and decided to do my research. Before you know it I was neck deep in calibre write ups, grey markets, and curved spring bars .

    I set out to find 2 automatic watches; slightly dressy & everyday. After days of research, shopping & reading (with this forum always being my reference) I settled on the following;

    Seiko SNZG17K1


    Orient Conductor


    I also ordered from Panatime;

    For the Seiko;
    22mm XXL Panatime Vintage Distressed Oak Genuine Calf Leather With Black Stitching 135/90 22/22
    with BLACK PVD


    22mm Panatime Olive Ballistic Nylon Nato with 5 PVD (Black) Rings 12"/308mm


    For the Orient;
    22mm XL Panatime Black Genuine Leather Watch Strap with Gator Print and White Stitching 135/85m 22/20


    Springbar Tool:
    Finally, for swapping the straps out I ordered from Esslinger;

    Bergeon 3153 Watch Band Tool Spring Bar Removal Tool



    My budget was unfortunately a lot smaller than my taste allowed but I think with the above 2 I got myself a good set up and a decent start of a collection! There's a few watches that are already on my wishlist but one thing I know is that my next purchase will include a Greg Stevens strap!!!! They're soooo nice but I just couldn't justify putting one on the Seiko!

    Now I just have to wait for all this stuff to get here! arrrrgghhh


    Anway, thanks again for all the info, reviews, pictures, comments! They were incredibly helpful! Any and all comments on my purchases would be appreciated!!

    Welcome aboard, Sam. Seeing that you are in MA, hopefully we can get you to our next WUS GTG in Boston. Just had one last month but we are a crew of watch lovers and will probably try another one in the fall.

    Nice start to the collection....both great pieces!

    Welcome to WUS, Sam. Great choice so far. I have that Military Seiko in Stainless steel and it's a great watch fro the price. I really like the balanced dial of the Orient. I find that most of the time, power reserve ruin the dial, not on this one.
