What have you discovered or learned on OF that thrilled you? What ended up being a curse? I’ll start. As means of introduction, I’ve been a watch aficionado for 35 years. When I started out, I was thrilled with a nice Seiko. In 1999 I fell in love with the Omega Seamaster GMT 50th Anniversary, and that became my first automatic watch. Since then, I’ve only bought automatics, enjoying everything about them. I never jumped on any forums, avoiding social media. I jumped on here when I was trying to authenticate a watch I already bought - a vintage Omega Seamaster De Ville. (Yeah, I know...). Since then, this place has been a blessing and a curse. Blessings: All those gorgeous images in WRUW. Learning about RubberB Rolex straps fitting Seamaster 300M variants with 40mm cases (at least older ones like mine). I love that strap. Seeing a Speedmaster on a heavy leather strap and immediately ordering one for mine. Curses: Finding out about “super fakes.” Yikes. I was previously aware of street fakes. I actually became paranoid about my Planet Ocean, but @Archer talked me off that ledge. Thanks again! Anyway, here’s my Speedy on a strap, arrived a couple hours ago.
