So, I've always loved watches, specifically mechanical ones.
I love time pieces in general, though.
I have four clocks, a pocket watch, and a (working) vintage Omega movement in front of me right now!
Despite my love of watches, it wasn't until this year that I finally started buying some and wearing them daily.
After years of browsing eBay and numerous other websites, the first watch I bought for myself was a Rotary semi-skeleton (image not of mine):
Once I had that on my arm, I was completely smitten, and the collection began.
Next came a vintage Rotary pocket watch
that I can't seem to find any information on.
(If anyone has any information on the watch, it would be much appreciated!)
Then, wanting a taste of Omega, I bought an Omega 510 calibre watch movement.
My plans were to make a frankenwatch with it as a project, but that has been back burnered since I discovered I was over my head on that one!
Right now I also have a Fossil Aut-o-Matic watch with a visible rotor.
Currently on the way I have an Android Mystique
watch, an Android Enforcer pocket watch
, and a blue IP Android skeleton I bought from a WUS member.
Currently I have my eye on a few Russian 24 hour dial watches, and some Pilot style watches I am interested in.
I also want to buy some really cheap Chinese mechanical watches to practice on so I can make that Omega project happen.
So, after a long time lurking around here, I've taking a few steps toward the water with some posts, but I decided to finally dive in and introduce myself.
