Hello from an old Newturfers member and long-time lurker

Just a quick first post to introduce myself. I'm Tobias, just moved to Sydney from London after 20 years in the UK, but originally from Sweden. I used to spend a lot of time on the Newturfers forum quite a few years ago, and then took a bit of a break from watch forums. A year or so I resurrected this particular forum user profile and starting enjoying all this great content.

I an currently a one-watch WIS, rocking the 16570 Explorer II. I love the GMT function on my Explorer II. I am currently working UK hours from my home in Sydney, and constantly refer to the second time zone, set to London time. This watch travelled with me on the long flight over from London to Sydney, and was the watch I wore when my son was born some 2 months later. I will keep it always.

In the past, I have owned several 14060Ms and a 16600 Sea-Dweller. I am now done with flipping watches, and looking to build a modest small collection of Rolex watches.

Looking forward to be a part of the forum.
