These are my browser bookmarks for just vintage watch research alone [though I haven't updated them for ages....]

This thread is brilliant! When I’m viewing one watch at a time on CWOTD or NCWOTD I lull myself into being able to pretend that THIS sort of stuff doesn’t exist...
I feel we’re getting to the heart of ourselves here...

My name’s Lindsey and I’m OBSESSED with watches and watch straps. :lol:

It’s all about finding your tribe friends :lol: :wave:

I am rapidly coming around to the conclusion that there are, in fact, many different types and grades of watch nerd. :D

Lol! No room on the nightstand! That one is special, my grandpa's Omega on a higher end Montblanc winder. There's actually another 12-slot watch box out of picture to the left of that winder :shock:

Love that framed Rolex picture of yours, too. That whole area is set up really cool :thumbup:

Your repurposed tool chest is my favorite watch storage solution on the forum. Very cool!

That’s me stuffed, then.

Oh, sorry, I thought you said taxidermy. :oops:

Seriously though, reading this thread makes me realise that in comparison with some folk I have very low levels of nerdismo, so low in fact that it’s probably safe to let me out on the streets without a nerdherder.

How about a travel pouch just for NATO straps. Two piece straps get a separate storage solution. :lol:

The strap width tool is probably another dead giveaway! :lol:

I initially wrote taxidermy then double checked the definition because I didn’t think I had the right word! :lol:
