Default Hello

Hi all, new on the forum. I have always loved watches, but since my retirement things have stepped up somewhat. I describe myself as a watch enthusiast and NOT a brand enthusiast. As it happens I own a Tag, a Nomos, a few Seiko's, a rather lovely Citizen, a Fortis, a vintage Corbett, and some rather interesting jump hour watches. Most of my collection has been funded by the buying and selling of vintage watches, which will soon come to an end after the sale of my last few.

It may shock some people but some of my favourite watches are made in China. Manufacturers such as Heritor and Steaur are superb, Sewor and Jaragar also make some pretty good watches, whilst the very cheap watches offer value for money, but are of low quality. Most of my Chinese watches have automatic movements, which appear to be accurate and reliable.

I look forward to our conversations and forthcoming banter

I am presently sunning myself on the Greek island of Kefalonia. I therefore don't have access to my photos, but I will post loads when I get back.��
