    Hello from... A Canadian

    Hi everyone,
    So, I'm an expatriate Canadian. Grew up in Calgary. Call Nanaimo my base, as it's where my folks retired to.
    I live in India for now, and have for the lat 5 years. Spend a lot of time in the Philippines as that is where my wife iz from.
    Sadly, I end up sending my watches to Canada and pick them up when I come home. Meaning, I get socked with the tax, sometimes twice.
    I have a strange collection which started with budget Seikos. I've acquired several HMTs in India. I've followed a few microbrands, especially Chris Vail's NTH and Lew & Huey watches, and recently purchased a Canadian micro, a River Watch Co Tiber. I also play with building my own watches with parts out of China with a both ST19 series movements and restored ETA 6498s.
    Nice to meet you all.
    Marc

    Pictures, my only watch from 2006 to 2015, a skx033. My L&H Spectre. A case of an unfinished project, modifying a Chinese Corguet case, and a custom dial.
