    Tom, if you see this, you can still hang out even if watches aren't the thing anymore. Hook'em Horns!

      I still see occasional posts from Tom on Facebook, although I'm a very rare visitor to F-Space. I suspect he's moved on to other Internet sites. On the other hand, I do agree the guy needs to get back here,

        Itís hard for me to fathom guys just dropping off after having invested a lot of their life in something like this forum. TR had the RGM 300 that most of the heavy hitters here wore and signed. I didnít participate in that because I was always out to sea. Iíd like to see old members return but Iím not in the business of begging for company. Their loss as much as ours, in my opinion.

            Hello boys! Thank you for asking about me. I faded out of watches a bit and got back into pocket knives big time. We sold our family business and I had to change careers, back into real estate now. I have gotten back into watches a bit.....after we lost my father two summers back my brother and I sold his gold Rolex, split the cash and I'm back into a Doxa Pro yet again .... the 1200T model, which I have always loved. When my son turned 21 five years ago I gave him my Bond Seamaster Pro. When he graduated college two years ago he really wanted the RGM 300 so that was my graduation gift to him. He loves it. I do spoil that boy. He has the box with all y'alls signatures, the papers, everything. I still have my U1, my Black Bay and virtually all my other watches. I will make it a point to start checking in again. Looking at all the killer watches was just too much without cash to buy them. But things are looking up. Thanks again for your thoughts. I can be emailed anytime at tomrobbjr68@gmail.com.

                TK, sometimes life takes you in different directions. And that has been the case for me in the most serious of ways.

                    I understand, but we have lost a ton of members here. I hope you stick around - welcome back to the League.

                      Hey bro! Glad to see you posting.

                      One comment though......you have given your boy a couple of watches but what about your daughter? She would look good sporting the U1. Just sayin.

                              Hey man, I think she wants my SMP 2254..... or maybe the U1. The U1 is her favorite. I'm getting down to no more watches by giving them all to my kids!
