Hello everyone, been a member for a while now, but never really posted. I've been on the site everynight for over a year; in fact before going to bed I spend an average of an hour to two hours a night reading post. Things are going to change and I will spend more time adding content.
Anyway I had surgery to removal my tonnsils and repair a deviated septum and fix sinuses. I cannot describe the pain i've been in, tonnsils are hell. When people say it hurts more when your older, they were'nt kidding. Well been reading a lot of watch magazines and reading members post to keep sane. As much as it hurts to move around, I just keep finding myself walking over to my dresser and gazing at my new collection. In the last few months I decided to get rid of all my less refined cheaper watches and upgrade to higher end. I've sold and traded more then fifty watches in a year, now down to seven. kept one quartz "eco-drive" titaniun promaster carbon diver. The rest are quality automatics all above thousand dollar range.
I'm Now part of the Breitling club. Bought my first one, a 2007 super ocean. I love it,
it is a proffessional tool watch with class. Also just purchased a longines Hydro Conquest, very cool watch, nice and heavy... Reminds me of a Tudar Black Bay with the snow flake hands!
I've sold all my quartz luminox, but kept my 1601. This was Luminox's first automatic, has a 2824-2 in it, and it was also their first dress watch, really classy looking. My rose gold hamilton open secret is a beauty, as well is my victorinox Ambassador xl with the newer valgranes chrono movement.
There are quite a few watches that i'm looking to one day buy. There all at my friendly local jewelers shops.
1. Omega seamaster coaxial gmt $2900
2. older Breitling chronomat longitude"39mm" $2200
3. Breitling super avenger, white face, but i really think it's way too big for me, I have small
4. Rolex submariner two tone st/gd, late 90's model $4200
I want them all, but this would take a miracle
I will probally be buying the chronomat first, it is a little small "39.5mm" but is is very ellegant looking and has receipt for latest servicing for $780.00. Hope to pick it up in a week or two. I had to take three weeks off from work, with bills and no insurance I took a wolliping to the bank acount.
Sorry to blab on, thanks for being a great community!!!!
