Welcome to TRF, Tonka (is that, like, in Tonka Trucks???). You have a couple of great Rolex watches, and we would love to see them, if you can get some pics organized.

Best to you...

Welcome to TRF, Tonka. Glad you found your way over to our merry madhouse. Always good to have new members. They keep the place interesting - not to mention diminishing the infuence of certain BKLs.

Stick around and enjoy the fun. And do post some pics of your current collection.

Hey Tonka, congrats and welcome! I just got here last week and I think you'll find as I have that there is a great bunch of guys here and great watch talk too!

Who would have ever though a bunch of Rolex snobs could make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?

OMG, Mike, don't tell me JJ's rubbing off on you and you're cozying up to sheep, also?
