Thread: Short presentation - Janne

  1. #1

    Short presentation - Janne

    So here is the short presentation for those that are not familiar with me from 'the other", dying, watch Forum:
    Slightly middle aged guy. Tooth healer by profession. Scandinavian that relocated to the Caribbean via UK (10 years in East Sussex).
    Watch collector for 25 years +.
    I like mechanical modern watches with complications, but I buy mainly Vintages. I do not mind if they are mechanical, Tuning Fork or Quartz, as long as the watch/model was a trail blazer of some kind.
    I have a small collection of Aviator watches from the 1930's to WW2.
    Latest buys - Omega LED Time Computer 1 and Time Computer 2.
    Grails - 1970's Omega Marine Chrono 1511, Tutima and Hanhart WW2 chronographs.


    Other hobbies of mine are studying European and North American History, reading, drinking beer, cooking and eating, cars, restoring cars and bikes and fishing.
    Just now I am rebuilding/restoring an EXGO electric golf buggy, I am making it light, fast and with needed road handling improvement.
    This project is because we are a bunch of guys that (together with Ritz Carlton) are starting a series of races on Island, starting in March 2015.
    After that I have a 1932 Jawa 175 Supersport in boxes......

    Maybe I should mention that I belonged to 'the other" watch forum, but got banned, mainly my fault, partly a sad misunderstanding over a (very funny imho) YouTube clip I posted.

    Is tooth healer a dentist? Here they are called money extractors.

    This sounds weird Janne, but I really missed you over there and am glad to reconnect here!

    Golf cart races? I can just imagine them hurtling down the straightaway....

    Janne, good to see you!

    Are you actually going to race your golf cart?

    Hey Janne, likewise good to see you. I think I posted a milestone for you on WUS when you hit some absurd number of posts, and then you were gone.

    Cheers.

    My dear doctor. What a pleasure seeing you again. We have much in common - I live in Sussex, love beer and watches, and we both love Scandinavian women. Really great to see you again. What's in the watch box these days? What happened to the Bristol(?) you were working on?
