Icon7 ...yet ANOTHER new member!

Hi folks, signed up a little over a month ago and this is one of my first posts (apparently I need to do some posting before I'm allowed to post on the WTB forum!). Quick bio...currently living in San Francisco (have been here for nearly 10 years) but originally from Seattle which is where I'll take the family in the next year or so. My interest and love for Rolex comes from my father (you can say he's to blame). He's had a Rolex Sub for as long as I can remember...his father (my grandfather) bought his 3 sons Rolexes sometime around the late 70s...I think he said the watches cost ~$600/each. In any case, for my college graduation my parents said I can pick a Rolex and I went for the GMT II (ref 16710) 'Coke'. Since then, I've worn it everyday and feel naked without it on my wrist (right wrist I may add, a lefty over here).

Why did I sign up for TRF? I'm looking to "double" my collection by getting a second watch and start building a personal collection. I plan to celebrate/reward/remember significant events in life with a new or 'new' (vintage) Rolex. Promotion at work, birth of a child...and any other life event that I'll consider significant enough so I can purchase a new watch, :)

In any case, I'm on here everyday now mostly in the For Sale section perusing and window-shopping but hope to contribute and be more active.

Other interests include...music (listening, not playing), motorcycles (Ducati Monster owner), bicycles (4 in the stable currently), and photography.

Thanks for the welcome folks. Like other forums I've been a part of in the past (mostly around my vehicles that owned at the time: Jeep Wrangler, Saab 9-2x, Ducati...), there always seems to be a good community of people and of course a wealth of information thanks to the aforementioned community. I can say that so far, TRF is no different. Been doing a lot of research/reading.

And to answer your questions about 'Your Rolex and your Bike'. YES! Here's proof: http://www.rolexforums.com/showthrea...64#post4989364
