This will be my 5,000th post on SWCF. With this milestone I just want to thank everyone who has helped me learn and grow in my Seiko journey. You guys have been so helpful posting about Seiko products old and new, the brand and its incredible history, offering watch tinkering advice, responding to my queries, and more.

With this forum I have found much needed parts, purchased great watches, sold off a ton of stuff that also helped others, all which enabled us to enjoy our hobby that much more. Everyone has been so supportive along this collective endeavor we call Seiko Watch WISdom.

I am lucky to have the forum and hope I have given back to it in return. It has been an honor to have added the bits that I could to expand the knowledge base in whatever ways I could.

We establish some kinship with others in posting which can grow by exchanging PMs and eventually can move to e-mail connections outside the forum itself. We establish good 'friends' and that means a lot to me. I think taking the relationship beyond just posting in the public portion of the forum is how we grow our bonds to the hobby and to become more fulfilled. Lord knows outside of "us WIS's" there aren't many people in my life to really discuss the thrills and victories of scoring vintage peices, fixing and restoring old watches, parts hunting and filling the hunting needs of others, and all in all enjoying all that being a Seiko Nut has to offer. It is all gratifying, especially helping others to get their treasured Seikos back into good shape and onto the wrist.

This is truly a wonderful place to spend spare time. I can't believe I have hit the 5,000 post mark - heck even managed to so without using the Word Association thread - that's the real measure of engagement !:D

So thanks everyone! I hope to continue to participate for some time to come, the Good Lord willing :dance:

Oh... and I forgot to mention. Many of my project watches would still be in various states of disassembly and neglect if it was not for Jon helping with advice and sourcing parts for me ;) Thank You Jon!
