    Another new guy saying hello

    Hello there! I'm a new member and looking forward to visiting, contributing to and learning from this forum.

    This is my family in a photo from my daughters wedding this past September. Me, daughter Sarah, my wife Donna and youngest daughter Rachel. I'm blessed to still have a raging love affair with my wife of more than 30 years, despite my childish behavior. I need to get her something made of unobtainium for the effort. Our daughters are in our lives every day and we are a very tight knit unit. Still figuring out where the new son in law sits, but he likes watches so it's a beginning!

    After a two year consolidation process, I have about twenty watches. I plan on getting to 8-12 by the end of 2015.

    Currently, this is my "crown jewel"...

    And my most precious, gifted me by my beautiful bride...

    It's good to see some familiar names and avatars here!

    Cheers,

    Beautiful watches (love the Seiko). Pale in comparison to the family.

    Thanks, Jeannie. I agree with the family comment. I'm a very fortunate man.

    Geoff, almost done with getting the watch components costed and the best part is we have them all being made right here in Massachusetts. Just had a meeting with the crew yesterday on it. We are going to rename it the "Revolution Watch Company" because hands revolve, it is a manufacturing revolution and is a testament to the part of the country we are from. The only part not made Stateside will be the 9015. First protos should be in my hands end of March.

    drickster.....Dude!!!!!

    Max.....thank you! Love you bro (in a completely manly way)!

    Michael.....always have been and always will be a Ball watch fan, and thank you for all of your advice and kindness along the way. I'm super psyched to see you here because you da man!
