Hello from a new enthusiast.

Hey all, happy to join the community here, as I have lots to learn, and mostly the way I can enjoy these wonderful machines is vicariously through other enthusiasts who can attain some of these masterpieces. I have a small collection of mostly gifted quartz analog, and a couple Casios, but I was recently curious so I looked on eBay with an innocuous “mechanical watch” query and down the rabbit hole I went. I found an intact vintage Seiko 5 that didn’t appear to be tampered with and I just got it in the mail yesterday. I must have had the back off it a dozen times since then admiring the movement. It feels odd to wear as it’s smaller than I expected, compared to say my GA-100 that I wear at work, but I am in love with it. its also the first watch I’ve ever had with a bracelet, I really enjoy that. 
 

Well anyway, nice to meet you all, I look forward to learning and drooling lol. 
Also, my name is Kyle, not Adam 😉

The first watch I ever bought myself was a Seiko 5 much like the one you have on your wrist. 

Welcome to the rabbit hole that is mechanical watch ownership.  May God have mercy on your soul. 

(Oh and welcome to WatchCrunch.  I think you'll like it here.)

Welcome to the WC! I’ve got two G-Shocks at the moment but feel the urge to make a whole mini collection out of just those now. Looking forward to seeing some pics of yours!

This group is really cool, very benevolent. Lots of beautiful things (or not, to each his own) to discover, rediscover. Your post makes me think I'm not sure I introduced myself the way you did...🤔😅
