I'm JM from Manila, Philippines. Started collecting watches about 11 yrs ago. I started with an Ingersoll which is the only automatic watch that I can afford at that time. Then, I pulled the trigger on a Magrette vantage (*bronze*). I also got hold of a Sinn 900 Fleiger. My friend suggested I get my BMBY watch. I asked him which to get and he told me to get a 6309-7040 which I did...That is when I started to have a fascination of vintage seiko watches. It has become an addiction. Nothing beats the color design of a vintage seiko, from the dial to the inner and outer bezel. This pandemic gave me time to really do some research over the different vintage seiko models like reading threads from TWS and Fratello. Right now I'm into the 5126 rally models. I joined this site to get more info and hopefully to cop one and add to my collection. My favorite daily watch is the 6119 6053 regatta.
Apart from watches, I'm also into scooters.
Hoping to gain more wisdom from the seiko experts here.
