    New Collector from Toronto

    Hello CWC! I've been a member for around a month now, but posting for the first time now.

    I'm new to watch collecting, but I've always had a fascination with watches. As a child, I received many Swatch watches as gifts which I absolutely loved. As I entered my teens, I remember getting a "Nike" watch which I was super crazy about for a while. When I graduated and got a job, I got myself a brand-new Swatch - had been in love with those as a child, so decided to get a new "grown-up" version for myself. Since then, I've had a few tough years with the illness and then eventual passing of my mother. Recently, I've decided to get back into watches! Did a bit of research and asking around, and picked up my first automatic watch - nothing fancy, but I just love it.

    Anyway, just thought I would post here, and I hope to be able to get deeper into this world!

    That first automatic sets you down a deep and troubled path dear man. You'll be up to 100 posts and 5 watches before you know it. Welcome to CWC and congrats on the first piece....once you get your first manual wind it's something special too. It's a morning ritual for me now

    Yes I am in deep trouble to be sure! That first automatic watch definitely felt like it started something new in me.
