Just a quick hello from me. A few details about myself. I'm now in my mid 50's and have always been interested in watches, but over the years I have usually just had one watch and worn it to destruction, usually Casios or similar cheap quartz offerings.
I did buy a couple of Seiko's along the way which are hardly used and still run OK. A lumibrite kinetic (5M42) and a lucky purchase in 1984 of a H556-5050 "Burke". Both get the occasional outing when I am not doing anything that could cause them damage.
I also have my grandfathers old Roamer (in working condition) but not sure how old it is, although I would guess at least 70 years.
Look forward to getting some great tips on here to keep them in good running condition.
