I have shifted my collection focus into vintage mechanical and auto handwindable watches. Be it Jap/Swiss, I am newly into divers/military related/chronographs etc.

Sam here, new to horology but not watches. 15 quartz/digital in the past 15 years when not as a WIS.

Now interested in getting iconic hand-wound. Saving for a Nomos and GS.

a very good morning.

woke up to hang my clothes up to dry, and decided to register an acc here :):)


anyway i'm under the same nick @ HWZ, into both tool and dress watches, be it jap, german, or swiss. basically into watches which i'll wear, not those buy-and-put-in-safe watches....

next target's a MM300 or emperor tuna.

ultimate grail would be a lange one

Hi I'm roo7 and I'm a watch addict.

Started pretty late on watches, I went watchless from sec to poly to ns and first few yrs of my working life.

Wife, then gf was crazy over watches, especially big ones, so she got me a fossil.

It lasted for a while, before I got my first automatic, a Russian, Vostok Europe. Then it all started.

I collected mainly vintage now, Japanese, Swiss and Russians.
Not as active.

lunarin79 here.

TS of former hwz official Seiko Club. Started collecting Seikos 3-4 yrs ago but at that point of time, I was still not a 'serious' collector, only until late 2008 then I began to focus on specific Seikos, mainly discon vintages dress watch, vintage divers & vintage 6138 chronographs.

During that time, WUS & sctf were the only 2 main forums which had sub Seiko forum & it was a bit not shiok to talk to ang mors, have to type proper English, very sian

Hence I decided to create a local forum in HWZ & the rest is history, close to 2 years since I started Seiko Club & it's growing strong in with fellow local Seiko lovers!

Thanks to roo di di for our forum & have a pleasant stay here :mrgreen:

Hi everybody,
Watchlooker here, been wearing watch since a small kid but seriously into collecting is around 1990.

Start with swiss vintages, followed by G-shock and Swatch as they were the fave back then. Mostly into divers and chronograph but open to others.....

Cheer!! ;)

Hi All,

big-e-294 here.
i caught the watch bug in 2007, when i bid for an 1970s automatic vintage Oris.
After some research, i started getting into the Seiko time pieces.
My main focus are Seiko JDMs, and i currenly have about 14 watches in my collection - a couple vintages, a few discon JDMs and a some current pieces.

2 years back, i also tried my hands at modding, and to date have done about 5 mod pieces. :mrgreen:

Yo people, I was the type of person who uses handphone check time till late Nov 2009, when my grandad passed away...then I realised a watch brings more than knowing time, a watch brings memories, history and more...

Hallo,
Many many moons ago, passed by a watch shop,
saw a wrist alarm watch n was fascinated by the
sound it produced. Hence, the rest is history.
