First off, let me say Hello, my name is Mike (a.k.a. "tictocdoc") and I'm a "watch-a-holic".
It has been 2 days since my last watch purchase. My Wife is so proud.
My addiction began in 2001 when I bought my first pocket watch. Seemed so innocent at the time. Never imagined what that 1 little watch would lead to a life of addiction......
I have been working the 12 steps of watch-a-holicism:

Looking forward to meeting you all!!!!!
One thing I initially left off my introduction:
My Wife and I are "Gold Star" parents. Our Son , Maj. Shawn Campbell, U.S.M.C - Pegasus 31 / 32, was killed, along with 11 Marines under his command, off Oahu 1/14/2016. They died during a training exercise off the North shore. They were flying 2, CH-53's that collided. Our Son died in defense of our great Nation. He had 16 yrs in and had finished his requirements to make the rank of Lt. Col. but was killed before he could pin on. Did 3 tours in the sandbox and come home with out a scratch. Left a Wife and 4 children. He is our hero.
