A big Christmas hello from Wales.

I thought I would spend a moment and introduce myself as I'm new to this site.
I live in Wales, between Newport and Cardiff. I have owned a Date Just for the past 13 years and have always loved the rolex watch. My wife bought me a new Sub for Christmas, she has always been very generous with my money.
I found this site as I wanted to find some information on cleaning and maintainance. I can't explain why as I have never taken much interest to date. Perhaps it was because my first Rolex was pre-owned when I bought it and I was a little bit more relaxed about it. However a new one and I,m like a kid in a toy shop.
I would like to say what a great site this is and I have been folowing a few threads for the past few days, with great interest.
I will post a few comments on them when I figure out what most of the slang / terminology means.
Have a really great Christmas and New Year.

Jason

"she has always been very generous with my money"......

Welcome aboard Jason.

I am sure you will find the information you are looking for here, if not post a question and it will be answered.

Enjoy.

Thanks guys, I've had a very good Christmas. Now I'm looking foreward to a happy new year.
can any of you point me in the right direction to find out anything related to Rolex Anchors. I've seen a few on e-bay and was wondering how to spot a genuine one or even if Rolex can still supply them.
Regards
Jason

Hey guys, I didn't realise there were so many Taffs here on this site. I got my Sub from Watches of Switzerland in Cardiff. It's the newish date version with a black bezel.
I'm still pretty vacant when it comes to models and the codes they have so am trying to get up to date with help from this site.
Anyway thanks for the welcomes from Welshwatchman and Daytonamania and everyone else who lives outside of Gods Country.
