Thank you all for your warm welcome. I know it is a slippery slope. I've only really started collecting in the last twelve months but the watches have ballooned from two to twelve or so. I really need to slow down and be a bit more targeted. I'm just a bit of a sucker for watches with cool sounding names. And I think the Japanese do that best. Helps if they look good too.

In my excitement of writing my first post I neglected to mention a couple of other Japanese watches.

Pulsar "Spoon" W671-4170 which was the first watch I bought for myself and probably begun this journey, albeit twenty years ago.

And my trusty Citizen eco drive BM8180-03E, my camping and general outdoor activity watch. Love the idea of a solar watch. Definitely one for the zombie apocalypse.

Welcome! I have had several cosmotrons too, best of which was one with a rarely seen exhibition caseback
Ooh, that would be good. Although having had the back off mine meant I saw things I didn't want to see. Like the lack of movement ring and wrong battery clip. Shouldn't be too difficult to rectify though.
