    You can run but you can't hide!

    If you thought you could start a new forum and get away from me you are mistaken!

    I'm Matt aka Perseus. I live in the awesome state of Colorado. Thankfully my wife isn't into watches as that would be brutal on the budget. My three year old loves watches, especially if they have bright lume he can see when I'm putting him down for bed.

    My camera skills are pretty poor but here are a few pics of my watches.

    This is the old trio. I had sold a Planet Ocean and bought the white GMT. I found I really missed the PO so I sold the GMT and bought another one.

    The Monaco is the watch that is responsible for me becoming a watch enthusiast. Currently it's a Di'Modell rallye strap.

    I was never a Speedmaster guy and then one day it just sort of happened. I recently swapped the black bezel for a steel and it's on a Hirsch Medici strap.

    I'm excited about the new forum!

    Thank you. The first place I went to have it put on wanted $115 and needed a week to install it. After I walked out shaking my head I called my Dad and asked where he had his Grandfathers Illinois pocket watch serviced. My Dad gave it to me last Christmas and I wanted to talk to the gentleman who serviced the watch about how best to take care of it etc. He remembered the watch right away and was a lot of fun to talk with. He put the bezel on in 10-15 min and didn't charge me a thing!

    They consider shipping weed out of state drug dealing and I hear that's frowned upon.
