Icon5 ARE You a "LURKER" -or- In the "SHADOWS" on TRF?

If you said YES to this question, I invite you to Come Out Into The Light!

I was a Lurker and in the Shadows once upon a time. I would venture to say many here in the light now were too.

SO, Please use this thread to Finally make your first post, come into the light and tell us a little about; you, your watches, why you are on TRF, etc.


Posting is easy, even this guy does it!

Heres the main reason I suppose,
I fee the Rolex forum group on Facebook serves the same purpose with quicker easier social interactions, forums are great however the watch world is thriving in the social market...

Yes, I'm a lurker.

I'm on the forums because I have an interest in watches. I greatly admire the craftsmanship that goes into these timepieces. To me, watches are not just tools for telling the time, but are also wearable art, and thus a form of self expression.

While I do read a lot of the threads, I rarely post/comment because I find that other members often voice my sentiments (somtimes more succinctly and/or eloquently).

As far as what watches I have, I don't have any at the moment, but I'm saving up for either a 116500 (black dial) or a 116680 (pre-mercedes hands), which I hope to acquire early next year. After that, the only other watch I'm interested in getting would be a Richard Mille; either an RM-11, RM35-01, or an RM55 (haven't decided which one).

I’m not a lurker. It sounds creepy.

I am a man of few words!

I visit every day, and have done since I joined - but others are more knowledgeable than I am, so I shall leave the posting en-mass to them

I have been a member since 2005, I was 76th person to join TRF. I visit often but post very infrequently. I use our forum as a research tool, other members reviews and to view some watch pics.

I joined a few years ago to PM a seller about a non-Rolex watch. Since then I have learned much from the forum. I plan on picking up my first Rolex next year. Until then I will keep absorbing as much as I can.

I’m here several times per day, but I rarely post.

It’s a great site. I prefer Forum setups over FB, IG or any other social media watch discussion platform.

Got my forever watch with research from this site and a trusted seller. Couldn’t be happier. I do lots of lurking as I like to learn from all the WIS that frequent this board.
