Hello from wonderful England

Hi everyone,

I have decided to join the Rolex gang as I will be shortly taking the first steps in Rolex ownership. Whilst I wait for the call from my AD to say that one of watches I am interested in has arrived and is available for me to view I hope to learn as much as I can about the world of Rolex ownership.

At present I own 3 premium watches, a Longines dress watch which was presented to me by my last employer for 25 years service, I also own a 2010 vintage Omega Seamaster and a 2019 vintage Moonwatch.

I have always been interested in watches but only in the last few years have I had the funds to indulge in my passion. With luck I will end up with a small collection of good quality watches that I can pass on to the next generation for them to enjoy.

A keen photographer using both digital and film cameras, with my focus (excuse the pun) on landscapes with urban and rural.

Please be gentle with me as I get used to Rolex terminology, models and movements.
