Newbie here


I was introduced to THL not so long ago by Duncan. I have come here a few times but always been a bit shy to jump in, as I had never really even thought about being in the "VC ownership league", as it were, until a few months ago when I wasn't actually looking for a watch, but one that I had never seen before grabbed me and wouldn't let go. There had to be a bit of negotiation with various parties and whtanot in order for me to get this VC, but I don't regret it for one moment!!

I know that there are several Loungers who have the same model but here is my very first VC.....and I love it like crazy....I have a soft spot for jump hour and other alternate time displays.

it is good to see you here.  I am glad that you have seen the light and decided to join us here.  This is a great place to hang out and I hope that you will enjoy your time here. You already know my feelings about your wonderful watch... By the way, your timing is quite good as I will be sharing something very interesting tomorrow with our fellow Loungers. Duncan

Comedians? Excellent! I look forward to meeting them LOL The problem with jump hours is that once you get one, you really really want to get another......

Some jump hour watches really offer
