    Let's see if we can get something going. Does not have to be a big event, we can just meet over some drinks at a nice bar to share our hobby and our favorite watches. If it's popular enough, we could make this a regular occurence - maybe a monthly drinks / dinner to share our latest and greatest pieces.

    Would love to, but the next couple of weeks will be tough for me. Perhaps late October.

    Sounds good. I'll be traveling to China, Taiwan, and Tokyo Oct 15 -30 so maybe we can meet up after that. Should give us enough time to plan something legit.

    I heard Angus and Noobmaker are rolling in Ferrari's these days so I'll keep a look out in Guangzhou, but most likely they are vacationing in Cyprus or Ibiza planning the next pre-order. LOL.

    Great, once we get a sense of numbers we can throw out some ideas. I'm always partial to a decent steak house like Wolfgang's where we could get a private table, eat, enjoy some wine, and share our hobby. Bars can be tricky for a formal GTG and not always a safe place to be sharing watches.

    I do have a friend that owns a bar around 14th and 4th. Not much food however (snacks). It's a quaint place as well, so with a group of us, I'd feel safe sharing watches as well. But steak is always a good time! Just don't want the location putting people off.

    For sure! Once we get a sense of who is coming and from where, we can set something up that works for everyone.

    That said, I need to look into picking up a decdng travel case to fit a few watches haha.

    I'm in after November. I'll be away for most of the month November. Depending on which day though I might be able to make it.
