    Hi OF. Long time lurker, first time poster, thought it was about time.

    I wouldn’t call myself a collector (and I’ve not gotten into vintage... not yet anyway), but I acquired my first Omega in December, one of the last FOIS Speedmasters.

    I own more Seiko than anything else but generally have an interest in anything with really strong design and great typography/lettering in particular. Looking forward to joining a few discussions here.

    Cheers!

    Welcome! Nice watch to start your Omega collection. You mentioned you have a few Seikos. Seikos and especially the Grand Seikos are awesome quality watches.

    Actually since Brexit our watches are running approximately 50 years behind continental Europe.

    Nice to meet you @FlatTop, I’m in north London.

    I’m also looking forward to seeing some of your Seikos.

    Thanks for the welcome all, sounds like there are plenty of Seiko enthusiasts here - I’ll head on over to the Seiko sub forum then!

    That’s probably the cleanest 62MAS I’ve seen - great piece. I love the design - I own the SLA017 which I’m a big fan of (no Grand Seiko... yet).

    Welcome to the forum & the SLA017 is a superb watch ( little biased as I have one ) & as others have already commented head over to the Seiko forum. And I’m from more up North myself but now based in the Midlands .
