    New Member saying hello

    Hello my name is Nigel, Ive just joined today I have a small collection of watches 5 in total which ive arrived at after a few years of early learning I am fairly new to the hobby and it has been a growing passion over the past 5 years, there has been a lot to learn and ive no doubt got a lot more to learn yet and therefore much more enjoyment to come. I started with the well known budget brands such as Accurist, Sekonda and Rotary. These I sold on and moved over to Citizen and Seiko. My most recent purchases have been 3 homage watches, these being an Alpha Planet Ocean, Alpha Paul Newman Daytona and most recently a Parnis Portuguese Power Reserve. I have a growing interest in the watch movements and like the latter for their Sea-Gull automatic and manual movements (as well as for their value for money and looks). My best watch at the moment is a Citizen Promaster Excalibur 200m Dive watch, and my Seiko is a T92 qtz chrono. At the moment I am hoping to add my first luxury watch and have in my sights the Longines Hydro-Conquest Automatic 41mm probably with black bezel and face. Looking forward to adding some pictures and enjoying learning more via the forum many thanks and kind regards.

    hiya and welcome the parnis power reserve is a good choice did you go for the silver dial or the white dial the sunburst silver is very taking but there was not that many made before they swapped to the white dial

    I recently picked up a couple of Citizens. My first experience with the brand and I'm really enjoying them.
