I guess that advice would be helpful for OP 4 years ago. I think it's still not too late though.

Could not agree more! It takes some time to read through everything, but it is worth it.

I guess English is a second language; didn't know photos constituted a problem with reading comprehension however.

Maybe the thread has been filtered down a bit. The OP posted quite a number of pics from his various expeditions and of his different watches. I remember when the first posts were made and was skeptical at the start, and it became the best watch thread Iíve ever read on any forum, honestly.

I believe the pics are still there.

Try actually reading the magnificent thread instead of jumping on the early doubters bandwagon

Not sure how much of this thread you have read, but OP delivered exquisitely.

This has to be one of the greatest threads around, should be required reading for those people, like me, who baby my watches and don't use them as the wonderful tools that they are.

The Pics are there, OP delivered in a magnificent way.

Take a look at the first 14 pages, they are very worth the time.

Steve - thank you for this wonderful thread. You have much in common with many of the men on this forum. The doers, the dream-chasers, the hard work, all day, make it happen types are here. They are the passionate, squeezing the most out of life, the lovers of all things visually, mechanically, and historically wonderful and dependable. Things built to last, like Rolex timepieces. You embody the driven and the motivated man.

By all means, please continue encouraging us by posting more photos of your exploring, and a few more stories!

Thanks and best wishes to you sir,
Bryant
