    Another escapee says hello

    Got the heads up on this new forum from a fellow member on "you know where" so thanks and hello

    I've been seriously hooked on watches for a little under three years and in that time I've managed to build a small collection comprising a few Omega's, Glycine, Bremont and Timefactors pieces.

    Looking forward to expanding my knowledge and sharing the enthusiasm in this wonderful interest of ours.

    Stephen, excellent collection, man!

    I didn't know you had such a nice stash beyond the Glycines.

    I love that Supermarine. I've never even seen one in person, but it looks fantastic.

    Inflate mode 'on':

    Bremont Supermarine? What? It has a piece of Titanic steel in the rotor? Why did they write' watch company', I thought it's a marketing company

    envyyy...

    Thanks Rob, the Supermarine is a really solid chunk of a watch - it feels bomb proof. You are welcome to drop by any time and try it on

    That's very naughty Emre, for a minute I thought I'd strayed in to the wrong forum

    The brand does seem to divide opinion; me, I just get on with enjoying wearing it.

    Besides, show me a watch company that doesn't get creative with their marketing. Maybe I should start a poll; Bremont: Love them or Hate them?
