Hi TWD, very cool that you joined up. Welcome !
Has to be so much
fun right now with you just getting interested in the hobby. ..You're in
for a great time I think whether learning about all of the different watch
companies, or picking up that next cool watch you are after. Welcome
once again, and hope you have fun.
P.S. Not really sure how I can help you with getting in those locked areas
you are talking about. They may have been locked by various different
members a while back. If you stay in the unlocked topics/areas you should
be fine though.
Hope that helps you out a little. Enjoy !
