    Worth reading for sure. one of my fave threads on any forum and I don't think you need to be a member:

    Quite a remarkable read that. Such a shame his life took that incredibly sad turn.

    Great read. It just goes to show there are a lot of genuine people out there.

There were one or two people there I quite liked, but the majority seemed like they'd buy Rolex toilet paper if it was offered.

    Am I bad?
    Hell no.

    was trying to stick at TRF for a while, but it seemed rather boring to me (guess mostly old time regulars still enjoy it)

    From memory a guy ironically called 'talktoomuch' made a post on the rolex forum of few words, 'collection complete' I think. Then followed lots of negativity towards him as the internet trolls. and some long term 'respected' trf members doubted him. Turned out the OP is a respected proper polar explorer.. over time he swung the whole trf forum around until they were all in the palm of his hand. He posted some amazing pics of his explorations and rolex tool watches being used as intended.

    This is all from memory as I'm also banned from trf !!.

    It's worth joining just to read this thread alone so you can view his pictures.

    Just to add to that - out of the blue his wife tragically died and he posted about her Rolex if I remember rightly and of course it is now his number one watch.
