    This is my first proper post on WUS. As such, it serves as an introduction, if such a thing even makes sense in front of thousands of members, among thousands of posts. This post is somewhat inspired by the fellows at the 2021 WPAC. Thanks. My interest in watches has often been about purchases...

    For sale is a black Grand Seiko baseball cap. Been well worn, but still stylish and punches above its weight in terms of finishing compared to others in its pricepoint range. Show off your WIS swag! Asking for $25 shipped within the U.S.

    Hello! I was recently making chit chat at a holiday party, when I noticed someone wearing a Tissot. Casually enough, I said, "I've checked out a couple Tissots, but I've never owned one. How do you like yours?" Without hesitation, he offered back, "Ah, so you're a 'Watch Guy' too, eh? I love...

    My favorite long-running thread on WUS is "you might be a wis." I thought it might be fun to ask the opposite: You might not be a WIS if... You buy a watch winder for your quartz watch. You travel to Switzerland to climb mountains and eat chocolate. You have $50,000 to spend and blow it on...

    In terms of watch knowledge, how would you rate yourself on a scale of 1 - 5? Wow I totally forgot, 1 - 5, 5 max aficionado, and 1 being a newbie.

    FS: Seiko Marine Master MM300 SBDX001 Does this watch really need much of an introduction? I s’pose I’d better, just in case you’ve been living in a cave… and not the spelunking type! This is Seiko’s answer to the Swiss manufacturer’s dive watches. The Rolex Submariner, the Omega Planet Ocean...

    SO.... I've loved this watch for a long time now. The Emporio Armani AR2448, but I'm having trouble believing it's worth the price. I don't know if it will match the quality of my Seikos for almost the same price. Amazon.com: Emporio Armani Men's AR2448 Classic Blue Dial Chronograph Watch...

    My first post revealed my starting collection, including some of the wrong turns taken between then and now. That, and the support of WUS, helped hone my tastes and enabled me to make wiser watch purchases. But all along I was missing a strategy, beyond "looks nice, cool movement, and I can...

    A place for us to post our comical interactions with the ladies or significant others in our life about our watches. Last night my girlfriend was complimenting my SKX007 that I had just put on a Super Oyster II from StrapCode (awesome bracelet!). She asked if she could turn the dive bezel to...

    Hi WatchUSeek members, I feel a bit silly asking this, but I am a bit confused whether it is WIS or WUS (or both?) when referring to WatchUSeek. I am under the impression that WUS is the acronym for the site, but I see that people also say WIS. Or, does WIS mean something else altogether? I...

    What is Breitling's reputation in WIS circles and what is the reputation in Non-WIS circles? I am NOT talking about whether they are worth the asking price, so let's not get into that. I'm talking about two things. First the initial question of what is their reputation, what do people say...

    This past Christmas, one of my friends who I have been talking shop with got a pristine, white dialed Tissot PRC-200. At first I thought that he had gotten the black dial version, but he actually got the same one I had when I first showed him my watch. I suppose imitation is the most sincere...
