Default Howdy from Colorado

I joined ages ago but haven't ever posted. So... Hi.

I'm pretty much all about affordables. Love me some vintage watches but have a few newish ones too. Also I like tinkering with watches but wow what a learning curve.

Anyway here's a few of my recently worn watches. My wife gave me the Fortis, my best watch, for our wedding over 15 years ago.

Thanks I know I love watch pics myself.

Quick question. I seem to not have permission to post in some threads according to Tapatalk.

I didn't see anything about new posting restrictions in the rules but maybe I missed it. Maybe Tapatalk is wonky. Anyone know?

I"m not sure of the restrictions really, a moderator may chime in. I know you must have a minimum of 75 posts to participate in the Buy/Sell/Trade section though.

Edit: too late!

No worries, @enricosonic, I found a post that says you need something like 5 posts on the Intro forum before you can post elsewhere.

Meanwhile, I forgot to mention I also like pocket watches so... Here's an 1897 6S Elgin hunter I got a good deal on. It came to me not working.



The case is what suckered me in. It's in pretty darn good shape.

Somehow I was able to get the crappy 7J movement running after cleaning and installing a new mainspring. It was actually one of my first successful servicing attempts.

Last I checked it was running within 60spd with a much better average.

Thanks folks! That is most kind. I look forward to posting pics of my others as I wear them. (Right now I'm wearing the Bulova Senator again)
