Hi Guys,


Yesterday my dad, tired of seeing me buy countless $5 US crap watches that died after 2 months, gave me this...

A Seiko 5 Sports Automatic, model 7S36-00A0. He's had it for years, but he has a Rolex now. He's kept it in a watch box, just in case.

I'm here now, sitting & looking at it, and I'm thinking, "I am a lucky gal!"

I guess this is my entrance into the world of timepieces, as opposed to the world of watches....

Wow.
:)

Thanks, guys! It feels real nice to be here...willing to learn a lot! And collect a lot, too... :D

Nesal, that looks gorgeous. Works like a dream, doesn't it? I like the bracelet, too.

Looking forward to having a small arsenal that I can enjoy.

That's really nice, glad you finally have a nice timepiece! I also have a seiko 5 my Father give me, when still alive. It's now one of my holy relics!

Welcome to the forum, and enjoy your watch!

Regards,

This thread put me in a sentimental mood so I felt like sharing a couple of heirlooms passed down to me. The Bulova on the left was my father's who passed away in 1973 when I was 5 years old. The Hamilton pocket watch was my grandfather's, then my father's, then my big brother's who gave it to me not long before he passed in 2006. Took these with my cell so sorry the quality isn't the best.

Welcome aboard. Your Dad will be really pleased to see you wearing that watch - take my word for it. I often wish my two daughters would wear watches.

Oh my goodness...those look fantastic...especially the pocket watch...THOSE are keepers, for sure! Haven't seen many Hamilton pocket watches...most of them were wristwatches, from what I've seen. (I've been a watch lover before I came here, but my dad's just lit a match to flare it up now!)

My next target will be a Citizen, or another Seiko...but I'll just have to find on that resonates with me...I'm quirky that way...but a pocketwatch would be nice to have as well, if unusual for a girl.

Can't go wrong with Citizen or Seiko... my two favorite watch brands.
