WOW!! 3 Rollies and 6 Pannies. Now, that's a dramatic entrance if ever I've seen one.

Welcome to TRF, hutchman. Superb collection you have there, my friend. You should fit in well here...and any friend of Johnny's....well, he's a good friend of ours!!

Cheers - JJ

YES, another Canuck.
Welcome to the forum. Stunning collection you have there, I see plenty of thought went into assembling that family, as the variety is a perfect mix.
Hmmm
The Canadian content seems to be a tad weighted to the east. just like our political balance, sports coverage ( ie Toronto Sports Net), etc etc etc

Quit yer whining, ya tree hugging, grass smokin' birkenstock wearing hippie.

Hutchman, great to see you here. That's a bloody amazing collection you have, and it's nice to see it's weighted so heavily towards the BIG brand.

Stick around... soon there will be enough Canucks here to balance off the Bald Kiwi Loon who racks up post counts faster than Oprah takes in carbohydrates.

Thanks guys!

Yes, Panerai is without a doubt my favourite! Three years ago I became an addict. Now most of the Rolex are gone and the remaining get little if any wrist time.

The Daytona in the picture is about six months old and has never been tried on!

Looks like lots of proud Canucks here. Great me too!

Thanks for all the kind comments.

Welcome aboard Mike!

Great collection! You will find a lot of Rolex watches here, but also some of us who have seen the light and admire other brands......

BTW, please ignore that lone Dutch sh!t disturber in our midst......I'd tell you more about him, but he just became a mod here and the power has gone to his head!


LOL! j/k Fransie!!

Hey guys don't get me wrong I love Rolex as much as anyone but I'd love'em a whole lot more if the made a 44mm or better yet a 47mm case. I believe Rolex quality is unmatched at any price!

Nice observation, I never noticed that myself. I just checked and the batteries died on my winder. I guess you can tell which ones that get the most attention.

You gotta take the Rollies for a spin occasionally. That's just not fair.

Welcome to TRF, Mike. I'd like to say any friend of Johnny's is a friend of mine, but my mother told me never to tell a lie.

You got here just before we've decided to cut the Canuck contingent loose. There are too many of them here and this place is getting overrun with maple leafs. But with that great lookining collection, maybe we'll let you stay awhile.

So stick around and enjoy this merry madhouse. You don't have to be crazy to be here, but it sure helps.

Once again.... Quit yer whining, ya tree hugging, grass smokin' birkenstock wearing hippie.

At least the Make Believes have actually won the cup before, unlike your Canuckleheads. Sure the last cup was won when I was all but two years old... but at least there are many of Lord Stanley's banners hanging from the rafters of 'The Hanger'.

You must be refering to the Leafs. I'm not much of a hockey fan, but I know the Canadians are the NY Yankees of the NHL. They have won more Stanley Cups than any other organization.

Big welcome Mike and a great family you got there mate!!

Gotta love the BASE too, I decide between 3 each morning.

My 112 still gets the most love, but the 9BL PVD is creeping up on it. :-)

I dunno... I've never seen Daren so smitten with a watch as the base. And that 09 is a holy grail watch for many Paneristi.

Not done, but content at the moment. Have some other things that money is going to for awhile, then I will be on the prowl for the next BASE model for me, the 000.

Digging this new strap on the 9 for the last few days though.
