This is an announcement for the new and prospective members who haven't been around in the past.
Modern Day Watch Enthusiasts (M.D.W.E) was originally a Facebook Group launched in 2015. Our main goal was to have some of the best , open and free discussions in a truly independent fashion for watch collecting whether modern , vintage , or both. During it's 5 year span , despite many attempts to change it's core from the outside , whether to become more rolex/omega fuck boy level or dealers heavy network with fake kiss ass methods , we have strongly stayed true to our core. Over the years , us staying true to our core has created a unique atmosphere for helping develop true friendships , learning heavily and even having fun and busting balls. This has truly made it a special place that cannot be found anywhere else on the interwebs , now only for the better , in a truly independently hosted place.
Following on hosting independently , over the years we have lost significant members due to Facebook's increasing behavior on bad privacy and nazi-like account suspensions with no reasonable explanations. We believe it will only get worse.
This group has also been a foundation for many original write ups and call outs that have been correct , and often copied and stolen by lurkers. So to have it correctly authored by you, organized forever makes it an even more secure place for original thought.
To all the new blood , we welcome you!
If you keep an open mind and give some time to join what is the true subculture to the mainstream watch community , you will be rewarded in so much new enjoyment from watch collecting , improving your collection , learning new information and making new friends.
