    I have gravitated to vintage chronos, but really love all sorts of watches. Funky Rados, quirky Russians, rock solid Seikos, divers, elegant Swiss and French, dress, sport, beaters, and sturdy Germans. Love them all! Here is my current collection, but it is constantly changing as I buy and sell. About 3/4 of my collection I consider permanent, finding that final 25% is where most of the fun is for me. New discoveries, great deals on ones I've lusted after, or just a piece on a whim.

    Hi all,

    Been enjoying the ATG forums for a while but never bothered to introduce myself - mainly as I dont have too much to share as a new kid on the watch block.. Anyway I'm in sunny Sydney a great spot to be but a little far from the 'best' markets (so sad that most things I like are for "CONUS buyers only"...)

    So one of my few but much loved pieces is this Molnija pocket watch (am I in the right place for PWs?!). Nothing fancy but I like the steel case and cream off-white dial.. New Members Say Hello here please?

    Hi. Name's Jason from Bristol, UK.

    I've been interested in watches and horology for only about 8-9 years. Always worn a watch but never taken much interest before then. I'm 50 next birthday and am a bit of a Seiko Nut (tunokies) on Instagram. I potter with accessable affordable Seiko modding for fun.
    I'd like to take Mark Lovick's remote watch repair course as I have most of the gear (all the gear, no idea. Haha)

    Collection so far consists of several Seiko and I'm heading more in the vintage direction. An omega FOIS which is going soon and a couple of old accutron hummers. I buy what I like (within a modest budget) as opposed to what people say is popular. For example, I've tried on subs several times but no 'click' for me.

    Dave S sold me his Lorenz Lemania 5100 recently so I thought I'd quietly have a look around the Lemania forum every now and again. Having popped the bezel off and had a go at the crystal with some polywatch, the Lorenz is currently residing on a 'watchsteward' elasticated strap. These straps are very comfortable and ship to the UK on a low , so didn't get hit for the dreaded VAT.

    The FOIS has just this week left my collection in favour of the Lorenz lemania, I have the new Hamilton Hack, two accutron hummers from 1970 and 1971 a range of Seiko including a 1965 weekdater a 6105 and this self modded SKX007.

    Hi I'm Mee. I was once a member of MWR, TZ, WUS 10yrs back when I was in NYC. I moved to Thailand about 8 years and never really have time to look at my collections. Just got back on track with watch collecting for few months. Glad to be back again.
