The Re-Interment, er, Re-INTRODUCTION of Mortuus...

Post by Mortuus Fakeuus » February 24th 2013, 10:45pm

Hello All, Mortuus is back in the pattern...

For those of you who don't know who - or what - a Mortuus is: I'm a retired USN Aviator, with 26 years of active duty. I have been married to the same lovely lady for nearly 24 years, and she manages to put up with my compulsive collecting of not only watches, but flight jackets and antique/classic radios, as well.

I collect mostly automatic watches these days, mainly because I like the feeling of having an almost 'living thing' on my wrist, found most especially in the ETA Valjoux 7750 movement. (In truth, the more 7750's I collect, the more I love them.)

And that about does it for now, except to say thank you to my dear WL friends who kept pleading my case, long after I thought the issue would have gone quietly.

And, finally, I need to thank Koimaster who, against his better judgement, gave me another shot at Watchlords. I am truly in your debt, sir.

//Mort OUT//

Great to see you back Mort Image

Thanks for everything, Mr. Feathers. It's amazing to actually be here again, but it's even better to hook up with my good friends...
