    Hi everyone
    i just wanna say hallo.
    i am planning to start a watch collection and i am really looking forward to spend some time here on omega forums.
    it looks like a really knowledgeable place, and i have so much to learn.
    i really like the seamaster and constellation models from 1950 or 1960´s so hopefully that will be my first watch
    thank you very much for accepting me as a member
    Cheers

    Welcome to OF. 50's and 60's Constellations and Seamasters are a great starting point for building a vintage collection. Beware of sites like eBay and Etsy until you acquire the knowledge to separate the bargains from the trash. Before your first purchase, read as much of the great advice available on OF as you can and ask questions. When you feel that you're ready to buy, a good place to start is the private watch sales forum right here on OF. Take your time to learn and your patience will be rewarded.
