I thought I would introduce myself as a new member of Watchuseek. I am a young collector who embarked on this obsession about 12 months ago, although I have always had a keen interest in watches.
After hours of research and deliberation in June 2013 I purchased my first automatic watch, a Longines Master Collection, from Watches of Switzerland in Sydney. It is absolutely fantastic and to me is the perfect dress watch.
Since then I have managed to dig up some family gems. A 34mm Tudor Oyster Prince and a vintage IWC which I plan on posting in the vintage forums to hopefully get some more information.
This Christmas my wife bought me a set of watch tools and I have been keenly fixing a few old Quartz models and ordering straps to experiment with a few looks.
My next watch will be a GMT or Chronograph or Dive on a metal bracelet, there’s too many choices and not enough disposable income to properly decide yet! My favourite brand is A Lange and Soehne but sadly I imagine that will only ever be a dream.
Exciting times ahead!
