Default Hi from Seoul

Hi from Seoul!

I recently renewed my interest in watches. In the past, I bought an Omega Seamaster GMT followed by a rose gold Jaeger LeCoultre Master Calendar. In the past two months, I picked up an MKII (Bill Yao) and have a Ball watch incoming.

This site was recommended to me and I have learned a lot poking around here.

Hi Keith ! It's beyond cool that you have gotten back into watches
evidently, and in such a big way too it sounds like.

Holy cow, just listen to that line-up of watches in your collection !
Must be tough deciding which masterpiece will be on the wrist on
any given day. ..So glad that you found us, and that you joined up !

Welcome, and hope you really enjoy !!!

Very nice Keith, and check out how nice, and big those numbers are !
You won't have trouble seeing the time whether in the light, or the
dark with those great tritium tubes.

Just can't get enough of how the overall design of the watch is very
traditional, but then gets supercharged like this. Ball makes some
impressive watches it seems. Enjoy, and big congratulations !!!

I bought this Jaeger-Lecoultre 12 years ago and it has never had a problem. Over time it has acquired some scuffs and light scratches. I sent it in for servicing and polishing, it came back looking great.

Whoa, amazing honestly Keith ! All of those are actually.

Each of them is a centerpiece, or entire collection to tell the truth !

Thank you, the JLC was acquired a long time ago after a good year and before my recent fascination with watches. Back then I really wanted a gold, perpetual calendar with a moon phase. I was in Hong Kong and just received my bonus a week before, they made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

Don't mention it Keith.

Thank YOU for giving us the cool story behind those exceptional stunners there !!

This watch rekindled my interest in watches and started off this years acquisition spree: MKII Nassau. A good friend guided me back down the watch rabbit hole was kind enough to sell this one to me.
