I moved on to high-school and my french teacher had a nice Rolex Explorer (1016), and my math teacher had the gold oyster day-date.Eeach time I saw these wonders the more I wanted one.
Well to be true to this site - I must confess that it was a Rolex watch that started me on the road to become a WIS.
It all started when I was about 13 years old, and I noticed a full page Rolex Advert in the National Geographic magazine, and at once fell in love with the Oyster day-date.
Somehow this watch was for me the most elegant watch I had ever seen.
But I quickly understood that a Rolex was relative expensive watch and something special.
And the more I get to know and love these watches - the more they grew on me - I feel a joy of seeing them, using them as daily watches and enjoying every moment I check the time.
It is difficult to understand for anyone that is not "into" watches - but please let me keep this nice hobby.Then in 2003 I had a opportunity to get a new watch - but which watch should it be?It quickly became a search for a Sea-dweller, as this watch had history and looked good.So I finally added that to my "collection" of now two Watches.The Sea-dweller then became my daily watch for the next year or more.But now I had the watch bug - I started to search the Internet - finding Watch forums - reading and trying to get a hold on my new hobby.
