    As per the title.
    As a newbie to this Forum I'm just saying hello with this first post.
    I've been collecting sports and tool watches for a while but mainly Rolex and Tudor with the occasional Omega.
    However I've gradually been 'seduced' by vintage Speed, Sea and Rail masters and others.
    I'm now lucky enough to have a small collection with a few other 'projects' waiting completion.
    I realise that I need to accumulate quite a few posts to post in Sales and WTB so any suggestions how I might chase up some much needed parts to complete my projects would be appreciated. Ebay is a nightmare and Chronotrader tends to be a bit wide of the mark. It's a shame that it's not possible to transfer posts from other watch forums.

    Anyway - here's the current state of the collection (not including the 'projects'.

    I am so disappointed: hoped to see a lot of Rolekses and Tudors.
    Only Omega's.

    Bummer. :cautious:

    Hi Dick, welcome, you've come to the right place.
    I would not mind seeing a quick and dirty photo of the Rol*xes either (just for research purposes)

    Welcome! And if that's a "small" collection, mine must be medium sized. :D

    Welcome, amazing collection.
    What watch is that all the way to the right? Is it a custom speedy or a LE?

    Nice collection! If you message the mods with references they can bypass the 200 post rule if they deem you worthy.

    It's one of those weird purchases.
    I bought it years ago from an old watchmaker in Brisbane while I was in Australia on business - he insisted it was a factory 'prototype'.
    I knew even less about Omega than I do now and whilst I didn't totally believe him, I hoped it was true.
    But in reality, I bought it because it looked totally spectacular - I still love it.

    OK - here you go.
    Some of my Rolex / Tudors.
    This is a 2013 pic so quite out of date - it was the last time all the watches out of the safety deposit boxes at once..
    (Unfortunately, security is essential - it's the times we live in)
    Anyway - there have been loads more Rolex and Tudors added since. 015 Rolex & Tudor Group Extra Large.jpg

    I am also a new member. No, IWC, no Rolex nor AP at the moment. I am a beginner.lol. :) So, I want to learn from masters before I start my collection.

    You will pull about 100 Likes after the first post and a few inches away from being able to post sales on OF. Welcome!
