Yeah I know I haven't been good enough to update this blog but 2015 was a very busy year for me. But never the less 2015 passed by so quickly. In terms of my watch collecting hobby, 2015 would basically be the Year of Digital with me heavily acquiring mostly casio digital and vintage G-Shock watches. I only bought one Japanese Automatic and that was the infamous Alba Blue Manta Ray diver!!!! (I'll do a review of this magnificent watch later)

Anyways here is a list of 2015's acquisitions.
