Thread: Small Boston GTG

  1. #1

    Small Boston GTG

    So, @wschofield3, @rdenney and I were able to meet today--we had a great time together, first time either Walter or I had met Rick. Walter brought his VC Overseas chrono, I brought my Overseas three hander, the Credor and the RGM. Rick brought his beautiful Ulysse Nardin Marine plus a wonderful selection of Ebel and Movado watches, including the Ebel perpetual calendar chronograph.

    Here is a quick table shot.

    Well, it's a very nice table, granted; but I'm more interested in the 'hardware' placed upon it.
    That's quite a selection, there.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    It was my first time to see an Eichi II—simply amazing. (And I mean that word “simply”.) And I confirmed why an Overseas would be my first choice for breaking into the Big Three, should that opportunity ever come my way.

    I brought stuff not so common to see, but @WWII70 had really paved the trail I was on with Ebels, Concords, and the Movado.

    We had a lot of fun. Some conclusions drawn:

    -We are all about the same age.

    -We all (now, at least) have about the same wrist size.

    -I was overdressed, what with long pants and socks. I’ll know better next time.

    -Walter likes mayo in his lobster roll, unlike his more refined companions.

    -Watch nerds tend to be smart, outgoing, friendly, and generous. Well, at least I tried to hold my own.

    -Not all Richard Milles are hopelessly over the top style-wise. (Price-wise, well that’s another matter.) We saw one any of us would have been happy to wear.

    -Lange absolutely will/absolutely won’t produce a sport watch.

    Did I miss anything?

    An excellent summary!

    EDIT: Hey, wait a minute, I wore socks!

    Hey, I'm from here, and that's the way I eat my lobster rolls. Of course, I like it the "more refined way" as well, but I was in a "traditional" mood.

    Great fun, thanks for the laughs and good company!

    Is the reverse panda in the middle a Movado with an el Primero movement?
