I signed up for this forum before I new anything about watches. I was a little intimidated to post much. The last few years I've been on WUS buying, selling, and learning.
Now I'm getting to the point that I can't stand all of the stupid threads over there. Like: "what animal does your watch resemble?" and "I left my watch in a glass of water overnight and it doesn't work anymore".
I think understand what this place is all about and I plan to become a contributor. Rant over!

Well now, there are several of us who are from Oregon and some from that state up north where husky's whine about football.

"what animal does your watch resemble?"
Lion

"I left my watch in a glass of water overnight and it doesn't work anymore".

Heat it up with a propane torch to get the water out. Preferably, remove the case back first.

If you heat up the movements lubricant, you can replace it with vaseline.

Fill the case back up with vaseline for water protection and lubrication.

Oregon? Isn't that the state that wishes it had a professional football team?

Welcome back, Mr. O!
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Hey, I remember that handle!

Welcome back.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
