Hi from SW Michigan

I have been lurking in the shadows for 3 months and buying flashlights based on the info here, mostly Ultrafires, Romisen, a few others.  It all started with a 9 led dollar store light now its XM-L Crees I also started a Sanrenmu knife collection.  I like budget self winding mechanical watches too, but I can't blame you guys for that collection.

Regards Rob

Welcome to BLF. Budget self winding watches? Now that sounds interesting.

Most are Seiko 5 series, some are Orient and two are Invicta diver watches all my selfwind watches have Japanese 100% mechanical movements I own nothing in Swiss since I am a "Budget Watch Guy" also. Orient watch USA has a pretty cool website if you want to google it.

I'm geographically centered between the Four Winds and the Blue Chip. Seven minutes to one, eight to the other. Smile This forum is worse than both, combined.
