Another Noob...

Post by WUS-Outcast » March 26th 2019, 11:42am

Hi and thanks for having me.
I am a long time watch collector; predominantly vintage Seiko, Citizen and Chinese mechanical watches.
My tenure at WUS was curtailed so Ron Good(AlbertaTime) recommended I try out this fine forum.

I'm looking forward to becoming a productive member here.

I did.

All, please welcome Peter.

Peter is very knowledgeable about my area of interest: vintage Chinese watches, and he was already knowledgeable before I knew anything. In fact, his smart and perceptive collection is a major reason I got interested in the first place.

Anyone Ron recommends is welcome here. We also have a sister forum, bestdamnwatchforum, the second after doxadick crashed the original.

Indeed; welcome, Mr. Outcast, goddamn it. There are few fellows who can provide better bona fides than A-T.

Goddamn it.

But

We look forward to your knowledge.

With the word noob in the title I waited a day or so for the pineapples to really start flying before checking this thread... I’m glad to learn that you are a knowledgeable and solid new member, instead of an actual pita noob on his way to the pine barrens.

Welcome, Peter; I look forward to your posts.

Thank you for the endorsement Ron but you long ago passed me with your avid interest in all things Chinese! I haven't been to China but have come pretty close through your wonderful travelogs :D
