Well done, Guy. Only the 4th to pass that milestone. :clap:

Thank you all for your compliments and best wishes; especially to Ferg (@minimpi) for picking up on this.

To be honest, it completely escaped me.

I saw a few weeks back that I was on a pretty high total but otherwise wasn't really paying attention. :lol:

I could work out and post all sorts of stats, like posts per day over the nearly seven years I have been a forum member, but I won't. Suffice to say its probably quite high.

What I will say is that I've been, and am still, on an incredible journey with this forum and my watch collection, having started when I joined with a couple of Seikos, a C9 Harrison Chronograph LE, a C11 MSL Black Manta and being in the process of buying a C40 Speedhawk on ebay, from Australia (which is still owned by a forum member).

Many watches have come and gone from my collection but I still have the first watch I bought in the Sales Corner, a Parnis sterile 47mm Flieger (I sold it, it went around the houses, and I got it back last year). I try to run an excel spreadsheet to list each watch that I own or have owned in my collection, which should have something like 170-180 rows of entries, except its a bit out of date. :oops:

My incredible journey is not only about the watches, but also the people I have become acquainted with over the years, some of whom I have met and some of whom have become, and will hopefully remain, friends. OK; I have not always seen eye to eye with a few forum members and I suspect that I have, unintentionally and without malice, upset one of two along the way. For that I unreservedly apologise. Life is too short, as I learnt last year when I lost my wife of 32 years to cancer, to go around bearing grudges.


Returning to the watch element of my journey, it is perhaps fitting that it should be at this time, well tomorrow actually, that I collect a significant purchase that will take my collection to another level. I've sold a few watches over the past six weeks since I agreed to buy it and still have a few more to go to cover the full cost (please check the sales corner :wink:).

It is a watch that I first became aware of a couple of years ago, but at that time it was firmly in the unobtainium category. Life moves on, times and circumstances change and, when it was suggested to me recently that it might be available it was something I could not resist. Having only seen pictures of it and studied reviews & specification I hope that I'm making the right decision; pretty sure I am.

The only real qualm I have is that it has the potential to render the majority of my currently extensive collection redundant. If it does, the Sales Corner might get a bit busy. :D

More details to follow tomorrow.

On that note, once again, thank you all for your compliments and best wishes.

Guy

PS> SOTC? Sorry Nick, you had one, well three actually, out of me about six months ago; should be enough to keep you going for a while.

As a newbie, I have to say that the most consistent observation I have seen on this forum is your dedication, passion, respect and love of watches and the fellow members! Thanks Guy!!!

Guy I had thought you may have held off a bit and made the landmark number 20,000th post a “new arrival by super special delivery post”! :wink:

Give the postman my regards when you see him. :)

Congratulations. :thumbup:

I've been trying to work this out for the last couple of weeks!! This is a bigger cliffhanger than who shot JR! Looking forward to finding out today! A very photo heavy page required!

Best wishes with it Guy.
