New guy reporting in....

Post by 1feral1 » Fri May 10, 2013 6:01 pm

G'Day from Bribie Island in Queensland (Australia)...

My name is Wes. I've been diving since 1977, using a Chronosport Sea Quartz 30 watch 'religiously' (worn for dives only) since 1980, although not diving much the past serveral years. The watch even after over 30 yrs keeps perfect time, and looks very well for it's age. I still have the original steel bracelet/band.

Over the years I've accumulated some quality watches such as a couple of Breitlings (1980's military types), and a few other military standard watch types such as a Hamilton, Sandy 189, and the Traser P6500 (wore this one in Iraq).

I've recently picked up a black Chronosport UDT (series IIa) off ebay, but yet to receive it... Got that for $535, a one owner watch in great shape.

I look forward to contributing when I can on here.

Cheers,

Wes
