What got you interested in watches and what do you love about them?
I have always been interested in watches since I was a young boy. I absolutely love them. I think that for me it's the typical gadget thing that some folks are attracted to. I particularly like to collect vintage Rolex watches, and enjoy the different look each provides. They are all very unique and are much different than their modern day counterparts.
Do you have a favorite watch brand? If so, what is it and why?
Rolex. I believe the brand stands for excellence and perfection it's a historic watch company and has a great history. Especially as a military serviceman, rolex has a connection to military service. I also have an Omega Speedmaster Professional [below] and think that brand is also super fun to wear.
What watch(es) are getting your wrist time lately?
Rolex 5512 [pictured at top] and my Rolex 1675 [pictured at bottom]. I treasure both, but the 5512 is my favorite by far. I also love my Rolex 1680 white, but wear it more as a winter watch.
What watch that you own or owned had the best story you could share?
Rolex 14060M [below]. It was my first Rolex, and I bought in 2004 with my father . It's a great memory and special watch I won't sell since I waited a long time for this purchase and my father bought another rolex at the same time. One day - hopefully way in the future- I will give to my son.
What advice would you give someone just starting out as a watch enthusiast?
Buy the seller! Do research and ask questions. The forums are a great way to learn and link up with folks who know what they are talking about.
