Hello from North London, UK

Post by Nndroid » August 2nd 2017, 4:48am

HAIL, WATCH LORDS. I prostrate myself before your majesties.

I'm possibly the worst noob you'll ever encounter on the site because I don't own ANY watches. WAIT, DON'T HURT ME. I'm here to find out which one I should get, which brands I should investigate, what's "me" and so on.

Background is, I live in North London, am a writer and general layabout, love electronic music, old reggae, comics and nerd stuff, and Liverpool FC. Somehow I've got through five decades without ever owning a real watch, but as electronic devices become more disposable and meaningless I'm more and more drawn to the mystery and romance of an actual mechanical watch – something that's not going to be e-waste in three years' time.

Going to post a request in the General Watch Talk section, but in the meantime, hello and please don't destroy me.

See? I told you that you'd do much better here with your intro posting, and sew fourth. I've read your posts a bit, and for a newb, you know a lot of stuff, so post early, post often, but in all cases, POST, damn yer miserable hide, Squire! (We're truly glad you're here, mate...)

welcome, a great place to start your watch search is "Urwerk". The mineral glass crystal makes it accessible to most any noob collector. Froggy says three thumbs up.

Pretty much the opposite. No tats, no hats, beard is more like "I forgot to shave again" and the only thing pierced round here is the lid of another jar of peanut butter.

Ha ha, one thing I do know is that the Urwerks look like Optimus Prime's scrotum. So I will be swerving that one, unless you want to wire me $90,000 and a blindfold? Urwerk = UrWANK.

I think you are going to fit in well here.
