Greetings from Chicago!!!

I have always loved watches but have spent the last 20 years in a monogamous relationship with my old Omega Seamaster Professional Choronometer.

However, this year I finally decided to scratch that itch and buy a new watch and decided on the James Cameron DSSD. I love it!

I have been lurking on this site for a while, using the info/intel/opinions herein to help me make that buy decision. So thank you for that... you guys know your stuff!

I am thinking about adding another watch or two to my nascent collection and am looking hard at a Hulk and a SD43.

Who knows if/when I will pull the trigger again but I look forward to participating on this outstanding forum.

Cheers!
