How did it start?

Lurker and first time poster.

I would like to know how your collection started. Did you start out wanting to collect watches or did it develop over time?

First time poster here too. My addiction started with my oldest brother getting a sales job with Seiko. Over time I had three of them. He helped my father get a Sea Dweller as a retirement gift in '93, and I became enthused ever since. I bought my first Rolex - a Sea Dweller - in 2004, and my SS Daytona when I turned 40 in 2009. In between I acquired a Breitling Navitimer.

Haha, I'm just starting. Been always a quartz guy, mostly Seiko and Tag Heuer. Then Tissot caught my fancy because it was an automatic. But the model I'm after was not available. Fortunately. Through readings and research Rolex just grew on me. Still in the waiting list for my next Rolex.
