    Hi everyone, new to the forum so an intro here. Loved looking at watches in jewellers windows since I was kid 40 plus years ago - especially divers watches. I've long been a fan of tough steel or titanium case & bracelet watches and over the last 25 years or so I have owned a Pulsar quartz steel (never took it off until the battery went) and a steel G-shock that I used to take scuba diving. Never really understood much about watch history and workings until a few years ago when I started researching properly. I now own four watches:

    Seiko Kinetic Titanium - Had it about 10 years then the rechargeable battery started going earlier this year. Just had it refurbished at a brilliant specialist outfit including a sapphire crystal (original was just glass and showed it...).

    Citizen Pro-master Tough Titanium - Near bomb proof but lightweight solar powered watch with a single piece case (crown entry only). Bought for when I'm doing stuff that might result in the watch being seriously damaged or lost.

    Seamaster Diver 300 black dial 210.30.42.20.01.001. My first mechanical watch and I liked it as soon as I tried it on (and then bought it....). Love the robust look and feel of it and the face grooves really work. Only thing I don't like is the bezel is sometimes hard to grip and rotate. This is my daily watch and has already got a few knocks and scrapes - love that.

    Speedmaster Moonwatch hesalite 310.30.42.50.01.001. Took a while to decide on this one but ultimately the sapphire version 'milky ring' look and the non-space friendly crystal case back meant I went for the traditional hesalite steel case back version. Great looking classic watch (yes the bracelet is great) with acres of history. I'll treat this one with more respect than my other ones and use it as a dress watch for now.

    Ultimately I'd like a Sub no date and maybe a 'proper' dress watch but in no rush to get more watches just yet. I might even go for a watch with a different dial colour or strap type at some point....

    Welcome to the forum :) I think you have great watches and your style is very clear. I would spice it up the collection with some different style and colours. Maybe after spending some time and seeing different ideas and watches here, your style would also vary a little ;)

    Welcome and nice collection! Don’t be afraid to knock that Speedy around a bit. It is still a tool watch after all!
