Hi, I’m Knox....

Post by JDC222 » Wed Sep 05, 2018 3:14 pm

A ok and howdy! I am Knox, live in New Orleans and enjoy boating, diving, fishing, travel, good food and wine, obviously dive watches of mostly a vintage type with acrylic, college football and spending time with the family. I work in corporate finance.

My first proper watch was a Gruen 14k 25 Jewel Precision that belonged to my grandfather, who died in '72, and I still have it. My second proper watch was an Omega Seamaster 120 Quartz Diver that I received for my high school graduation in 1985. It flooded a few times diving and now sits in my watch box unfixable. My third proper watch was a Tudor Day-Date that I bought myself in St. Louis in 1999. My first automatic dive watch was a refurbed vintage 5513 bought in 2012 and am still kicking myself for selling it in 2015.

Welcome Knox!

Your original post was informative, except you didn't introduce yourself first.

I'm sure we would all love to see any diving shots if you got em. :thumbsup:

You mean you aren’t Knox?

When I was a firefighter I occasionally got into his box.

I'm here and thanks for fine welcome. I have a few dive pics to post, just need to size them down a bit.

Also, I do not know Craig from Idaho that I can recall as Grahamcombat asked.

I hope you stick around. Really enjoyed the first post. Never hurts to have a few people here who actually dive with their watches. :cheers:
