Hi all! Been lurking around for a while! I was never a big poster in any forums but I've been reading and enjoying posts for a while. I've always been a fan of watches, got my first Timex when I was 6, at 8 years old I specifically chose a pocket watch for Christmas. Since then I've had many different types, a lot of cheaper watches for the most of 'em. 2008 came and I was gifted an Invicta Pro Diver 8926A (scalloped bezel and Miyota movement). Still wear it when I'm doing real tough jobs since a ding more on it isn't gonna change much. This watch made me discover the wonderful world of mechanical watches. Bought a few other Invicta's (cheap and wide range of sizes and styles) and wouldn't you know it I always came back to diving watches. Last summer I decided to treat myself to the one iconic watch from my childhood: an SMP300. Which color to choose other than blue? None for me. After all, if blue was good enough for James Bond in Goldeneye, I guess it's good enough for me and anyway, life is much more beautiful with dashes of color here and there. It almost never leaves my wrist. I think it might have stopped 2/3 times since last July. I'm definitely not babying it and it's holding up great so far. I'm almost never even worried for it! I look forward to exchanging with a lot of you over time. Sorry for the wall of text, I'm just real glad I found a community of people as passionate as I am about watches. Y'all have a nice day!
