    Hello everyone,

    My name is Michal, I'm a watch collector from Poland with a special interest in Omegas. I'm fairly new to the hobby, I have only been collecting watches for a little over two years. From time to time, I have been visiting this forum to look for advice, and I thought I might as well finally introduce myself. So there :)

    And now I'm off to the WRUW thread to share what's on my wrist today.

    We had many of your fine countrymen from the Polish Ambulance Unit stationed in our area during the last unpleasantness and several stayed on and raised families, lovely people. Enjoy the forum and a word to the wise, set yourself an avatar pdq ;)

    Hello, my name is Eric......50 years of age..........and I'm an Omegaholic. It's been 23 weeks since my last watch purchase.
    Long time fan, first time owner of an Omega back in July, pictured below (Planet Ocean GMT). Next on the list is a Speedy. Was priding myself on having the patience to wait another 5 years for the 50th anniversary Moon Watch......but going through withdrawals. Photo Jul 10, 12 37 40 PM.jpg

    Welcome Eric! 23 weeks sounds pretty good. This year I barely made it through 8 weeks without buying a watch ... ::facepalm2:: So you're holding out pretty well.

    Remember the eleventh commandment: Thou shall not covet thy neighbours watch - just go out and buy your own.

    Aloha,

    Saying hello to everyone from the island of Honolulu Hawaii. My name is Ky and I'm a long time admirer of fine time pieces. Purchased my first Speedmaster back in 2002 and that's how the love affair started. I'm currently an active duty member with the US Coast Guard so I also wanted to take this opportunity with give a big shout out to all current and former service members.

    Hi everybody!
    I'm Michael from Canada and I've recently been bitten by the Omega bug. I'm looking at a couple of Seamasters but I keep being distracted by the odd gorgeous Connie! Anyhow, I wanted to introduce myself and say how informative the site is.

    Welcome Michael, did you have a specific Seamaster in mind? Vintage or modern? Anyway, you'll find much information here to help you and many enablers to help you spend your money! If you find a watch you like don't be bashful about asking for opinions here, better to vet any watch before you buy!:thumbsup:

    I've got my heart set on vintage. I'm hoping to find either a Constellation or Seamaster 564. :)

    Welcome Ky. And thank you for your service! Don't be bashful about sharing some snaps of your watches as we love photos here! Speedmaster and the Coast Guard seem like a good match-up.:thumbsup:
