    YO

    Hello my name is Thomas.
    I accidentally sent a PM to broker on watchuseek and mentioned this place. i immediately registered here and my first post was in WRUW followed by this post. Going on 5 years on my watch passion and am working on getting a Omega Planet Ocean XL(my grail).
    I love divers but also take pride in my appearance, so being dapper in a nice dressy watch is also important. i own many Deep Blues(the old, good DBs) citizens, bulovas, a steinhart and an older zodiac. i try to stick to swiss movements and sapphire, but others slip in. mix of quartz, autos and 1 mechanical. what i consider to be my nicest watch is either a DB M2K or my Steinhart Nav-B UHR. i have often thought of selling my collection to get my Omega but i can't bring myself to do so. But, i'll have it one day.

    cheers

    Welcome Thomas - the Planet Ocean is a great watch, one of my favorites. I hope you achieve that goal soon and post some pics

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forum, Thomas!

    We're the same age (almost exactly); did you see Bernard's watch when you were a kid? Now THAT would be a watch. You could go visit that bird in your avatar - Scarlett, is it?

    and the name is from a green blowup alien doll (about 4 feet tall)we named bernard years ago at my friends house.(named so in a drunken, friendly sort of way) the name just stuck with me and became my alias on the interwebs.

    Ah there's a derby city in America, I thought you were in the UK one. Probably haven't seen Bernard's watch then....
