Icon20 Watches and Whiskey DFW

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to gauge interest if I were to host a local Texas Watches and Whiskey event what the interest level would be.

Being a local Dallas-Fort Worth resident the events would be in varying locations around the metroplex whether it be at a Country Club, local whiskey joint or possibly even Rolex service center tours or AP boutique etc. would be rotating locations unless the group determines otherwise. Ultimately this would be a local networking event for whiskey/watch lovers who are also business professionals / entrepreneurs to grow our networks while doing something we love.

If you are interested please answer the following questions.

1. Monthly or Quarterly gatherings?
2. Specific brand gatherings (such as exclusively Rolex) or open to all watch collectors?
3. Reoccurring same location or varying location?
4. Any additional feedback/recommendations/comments/concerns.

Thanks all!

1. Maybe start quarterly and if they're popular make them monthly.
2. Brand specific
3. Varying location
4. I'll be the guy with a cardboard cutout of a GMT on my wrist until an AD can get me one.

This sounds like fun. I’m by no means a whiskey expert, but I wouldn’t mind learning.

1. Start quarterly makes sense to me
2. I’m open to all brands even though my small collection is all Rolex and Omega at the moment
3. Vary locations. I’m a Fort Worth guy and would hope to see some events on my side of the Metroplex

1) Quarterly to start
2) Brand specific would be neat, but not picky
3) Varying location

Great idea!

Let the watch manufacturers know. Youíll be surprised how they will want to show up with a booth to display product. It makes an event more interesting. If thereís a local rep they will want to participate.

1. Quarterly
2. Rotating Brands
3. Varying location
4. Iím originally from Ft Worth and have family across DFW so I visit often, but since Iím in Tulsa, maybe weight my response a bit lower than a local. Iíd also be interested in wine/beer locations as wellÖ

You can make it a car event too! Kind of like cars and cigars on the park up front app.

I'd be interested. Quarterly GTGs would work to start.

Also interested.

1) Quarterly
2) All brands. My collection is all Rolex & Omega, but I’d love to see and learn about other brands.
3) Varying locations.

1. Monthly or Quarterly gatherings? Quarterly
2. Specific brand gatherings (such as exclusively Rolex) or open to all watch collectors? More the merrier
3. Reoccurring same location or varying location? Varying but somewhere friendly for us Fort Worth folks too :)
4. Any additional feedback/recommendations/comments/concerns. We’ve got a good bunch here already, let’s get this started!

Hello Everyone!

Sorry I have fallen behind on planning an event.

I appreciate everyones feedback and looks like the consensus is quarterly meetings to begin with

I’m proposing a first get together in late January once we are past the holidays.

I’m going to start searching for a venue and will be pursuing 3 routes and then we can pick the most viable option that provides some peace or mind from a security perspective so people can feel comfortable bringing whatever pieces they may wish.
I’m going to shoot some emails out over the weekend and will post an update when I have some options to pick from.

For now if I could get some tentative yes/no’s for if the second half of January works for the group. This will help greatly in venue selection and what parts of the metroplex we first meet in.

The first event will likely take place in Fort Worth or Southlake. I’m open to Dallas etc for the first meeting if the consensus is Dallas, but will be shooting for Fort Worth/Southlake at this current moment in time.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to hearing from you all!

Hey guys! Not to interrupt current planning but I would check these guys out if you have time. They have a great thing going. They're out of Austin so it might be too far but I thought I would throw this out there.
