    Hi there

    I'm pretty new here also but this place looks great, very interesting!

    Do you have any watches? I'm saving currently.

    I'm a coffee fanatic, being Italian are you a coffee lover also?

    sure I have! I've some soviet/russian watch, Vostok, Poljot and some Raketa (military and civilian production), some vintage divers', some vintage "classics" and, obviously, military watches! the oldest is from 1942, and the youngest from 2009!

    mmm, I don't know yet Bubi, but yes, italians are (generally) hilarious people!

    ahem...I don't like coffee at all!
    I know, it's strange for an italian, all loves espresso (american coffe is like warm water for an italian coffee lover!), but I like tea.
    hot tea with sugar and milk.

    very british...

    Non preoccuparti, basta usare Google Translate come me! Anche se so che barare e il gioco in lingua inglese sicuramente molto meglio di mio italiano, la pratica rende perfetti credo

    ...and that's the last bit of Italian you're going to get out of "me", I think I need to be cruel to be kind.

    Ciao Aurelio...... oddly enough, I discovered TZ whilst living in Palermo. I worked in Fincatieri's shipyard for 2 years on the Scarabeo 8 drilling platform.....
    seems a long time ago now and I miss Parermo lots...

    no no, absolutely I'm not going to use google translate!

    is better to err and try to correct then!

    oh, really? I live very nearby Fincantieri! from my room I can see the ship where they working, and I have a lot of relatives (one granfather, one uncle and others...) that have worked there! (but a lot of time ago...)

    yes, Palermo it's a beautiful place...but sometimes the citizens are the real problem of this city...
