    Hi, I'm IvanOmega60.
    And... I don't know what is this site about, but I really like the site name.
    I'm Spanish but I don't want you to talk spanish with me, but I apologize if I have bad grammar or some mistakes.
    I like this place, I hope I can learn more although I'm busy with studies.

    Hi Ivan. Welcome to the forum. I won't speak Spanish to you as I can't speak Spanish.

    Nice Entry!

    I see a revisit to Omega (Speedy perhaps?) in your future! ::stirthepot::


    There is a Cubeistan over in another forum I frequent... Does " Sun Comes Up - John Legend " ring a bell?::confused2::

    Hello, name is Doug, maybe you've seen me on the WUS forum.

    I own some Balls, a marital Chopard, some WUS forum pieces (my Tourby in the avatar, for instance), and quite a few micro-brand divers... I don't own an Omega...... yet!

    I happened onto this site by chasing a Dblitzer ad for a beautiful vintage Constellation Arrowhead I saw on WatchRecon... I tend to like simple dials with few numerals, no-date. I do love the latest Aqua Terras, Planet Oceans, SeaMasters. I guess some good news is that my wrist is about 6.5 inches, so I tend to be OK with 37mm+ wide or larger cases, so maybe a vintage is in my future!

    Yes, I'm sure you are!

    I didn't think posting on the OmegaForums would be without that risk :eek: !

    Thanks for the 'welcome' at any rate...:D

    Hi guys, my name is George and I'm slowly discovering the vintage charm of watches. I'm been into watches for a couple of years now and I'm slowly but surely getting tired of the same ETA under a different dial.
    Cheers!

    Thank you! I am prepared, the only thing is that I don't know if my account is prepared for the same thing (not to mention the wife :)).
