I am new to the forum and wanted to introduce myself.
I live in Northern New Jersey.
I'm not a huge watch collector - yet. But I've always been interested in watch designs.
I think my interest started when my Aunt gave me a Rensie pocket watch (right after my mom died back in 1998) that belonged to her father. She even gave me a picture of him with the watch.
Now, every year for our Anniversary, my wife buys me a watch or some sorts - usually not too expensive, but decent looking. I am into simple over complex designs. And for our last anniversary, she bought me a very nice Savoy watch - probably the most expensive watch that I have received.
Also recently, my father passed away, and I came across a box of his watches. Just a bunch of non-working timex, but there are a few in there that are very interesting.
I've found 2 Longines - one with his initials engraved on the back. And I also found a Jaeger LaCoultre. They are in pretty good condition too.
I can't seem to identify any of them, so I stared looking on the internet and came across this forum.
I'll post pics when I can.
Thanks, and I'm excited to join.
