Default Hello from the U.K

Been lurking and checking out the forum but thought id pop a post up.

Been in and out of the watch collecting game but heavily back.into it again.

Trying different things a bit of modding etc.

Mainly Seiko or seiko powered but feeling the draw of a sinn u1 or 857.

Anyway thanks for the space to hang with other watch freaks

Very nice to talk with you magpie ! It's really great
that you decided to join up !

Sounds like you already know a ton about this hobby,
and have some phenomenal taste in watches as well.
It's so neat hearing that you have even gotten into
modding like that too.

Looking forward to enjoying the hobby along with
you. Welcome !!!

I wouldn't say the wrong side, I have some very happy memories of Blackpool I remember holidays there as a child we had family with a guest house just off the sea front. That was in the 70s though I have not been to visit for quite a few years.
Really showing my crusty old age.

I think you would find it a completely different experience if you visited now.

And not in a good way.

Still ok in the touristy bits but ropey everywhere else.

I have heard stories not favorable either, a sad shame really.
