Hi Everyone! New to DWC but not watches

Post by WatchTimes » Thu Aug 15, 2019 12:37 pm

Hi Everyone!
My names Jeremy, I am from Metro Detroit and have been into watches for about 30 years.
Its evolved from a hobby to one of my companies.
I just joined here as I have recently become more interested in Dive Watches from the 60s & 70s other than Rolex.
The colors on some of the earlier watches from companies like Philip Watch Caribbean, Favre Leuba and the tool watches like the Ploprof or ScubaPro really have sparked my interest!
I also purchased my first REAL mil watch here the IDF Luminox! IDF Military watches REALLY have grabbed my attention!

Anyway I will be adding my two cents here and there and also looking to you guys for advice on some pieces that interest me so I don't buy junk LOL

Oh yeah I know Matt Wu and Im sure several of you here already from WUS, TRF, TZ etc

Most important lesson my dad taught me in life is if you are not the foremost expert in the whole world in something seek the advice of others more knowledgeable than yourself!

So hello to everyone from the Motor City AKA Detroit AKA Motown

While I am from Detroit I am NOT a Shinola fan or supporter BUT I was offered this and could not turn it down as it came from a SS agent. I also was able to get the SS Jorg Gray through a SS agent.

PITA Oceana I think most of you know this watch, if not you should really look it up as its a COOL unique kinda rare diver.

I am a sucker for green dials! I acquired a H Moser Pioneer Perp Cal for a client in blue a couple years ago and really was impressed with their work. A couple moths ago I came across a good deal on a Pioneer Green Center seconds and snagged it! 5 days after I bought it I ran across the Purple Haze (LE of 10 with the Horophile) and my wife loves purple, the price was right and I just had to do it!! Purple pic from Google I just don't have a decent pic showing the colors Ive taken

OK I will add more later, this is all I could attach in one post but I have too many watches LOL

1675 GMT I bought from the original owners son, I was lucky enough to speak to the original owner. It was given to him by his family when he graduated the USN. It is engraved USN with the year and his parents initials. He could not get specific about where he was etc BUT he told me with a smile a chuckle that it spent LOTS of time under the polar ice cap during the Cold War

AP Manual Ultra Thin Skeleton. My father was not a watch guy but in Paris he saw this at the AP boutique a zillion years ago and had to have it (if you knew my father you would understand. He opened the coolest craziest arcade in the world which I own and run Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum). It holds a special place in my heart and Id never sell it, I wore it the night I proposed to my wife

The MIH watch, a VERY cool unique piece I bought when in Switzerland with my wife for our honeymoon

Hublot Bullet Bang. Not a Hublot guy in general but this watch has special meaning to me.

OK this is enough for now LOL! I will add more when time allows.

Jeremy's a good dude! Glad you're here!

Also, I don't think I realized you had such a varied collection. That's awesome.
