Calling all the olde timers(get it) :-).........check in

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have been gone for far too long and with my daughter's 19th birthday today, I got to thinking about family. Not just immediate but everyone that has touched me and my family. I have spent a long time here and on the original board. Thousands of posts, dollars and communications have come and gone. But I have to tell ya, I miss the environment that was RWG!

 

I have no idea who is still active or lurking, but let this post serve as a roll call to update us all on :

 

Where you are in life

Status of your collection

Milestones or reasons to celebrate

News you may have of other members no longer active

etc, etc......

 

I miss you all and will always have a place in my heart and life for the members here at RWG.

 

So let's go, don't be shy.....

* Where I am in life...  work is incredibly challenging, incredibly dangerous, and the [email protected] keep trying to promote me out of the job I love to do.  I have a good woman at my side, everything else is secondary.

* Status of the collection...  too dang many watches.  I'm up to 18 and I'd be happy with 6,  just the vintage gens.

* Milestones...  my daughter finally met a man I approve of and they were married.  I walked her down the aisle, and whispered in his ear "tag, you're it".

My boy is a firefighter in Kotzebue, above the arctic circle.  I couldn't be prouder of him.

I’m in touch with Stephane and Thorsten 

Work was busy, currently stopped. Home life had some major reconfigurations in January, which are taking a lot of getting used to

I'm still here. I don't post much. Feel like all the help, brotherhood and what not was all for nothing once I was banned from RWI. I'm a vendor over on RG now (US watchsmith). 

 

Things have changed so much. It'll be 13 years of membership here next month.

 

Where's Lanikai?

Hello everybody.

I'm still getting notifications and thus I'm visiting from time to time.
But I must say my life has changed totally since I got sober (5 years ago) and broke (2 years ago) !

The brotherhood of RWG helped me a lot 2 years ago when I couldn't even imagine having a simple job back.
You guys gave me a couple of watches and hundreds of euros that kept me alive till I found a job.

I'm back on track, a radio presenter job during nights and weekends, still sober, publishing a blog about my alcoholism.
I earn a very nice income, live in a nice flat and eat more than enough. 
I don't have the financial power to buy reps (and certainly not gens), but I'm more into spiritual living than I was before, so all is fine.

Great to have news from you guys !

Keep safe,
Stephane

God Bless you Stephane and congrats on beating the beast!!!!

 

I am glad you are well and I am going to dig around to see if I have a watch I can send you, can’t let you be sober with a nekkid if wrist🤣

I've spent some time with him, he's up to his eyeballs in a bunch of new, worthy endeavours and they take all his time.  What a great guy.

Still here...  but damn. This place is almost dead. A real pity. Don’t know why. I spend most of my time lurking at RepGeek under a different name. Sold most of my reps and still do a a lot of watch restaurations and other watch work. Mainly gens. Father of 2 beautiful daughters (4&7) which grow up way too fast. Working for the ‘man’ still sucks and hoping I can make a living out of watches somehow in the future. A man can dream....

 

All the best B)

Thanks for chiming I’m Mark. 
 

why can’t we old geezers breathe some life back into this place?  We all still enjoy watches correct? We all have life [censored] dumped upon us, we have work [censored] and family crap.....let us show the way back.....

 

 

 

 

perhaps I poured too much Tito’s in my cup, but hey, I’m still a dreamer🤪

I know what you mean.  We can barely keep the bears fed...since they closed the vacation roads to Yankees.

Wait a minute!  That was not PC.  I take it back!
