Tampa Bay area

Any fellow enthusiasts in the Tampa Bay area? Would be great to grab a drink, network and talk watches.

I have a Whiskey and Watches group on FB and Meetup in Tampa! We meet about every two weeks at various places around town.

Nov 14th we are going to Davidoff of Geneva, it’s a cigar lounge and bar.

Shoot me an email and we’ll connect - brandall727 at g mail

Lutz! It was a decent showing. Not much in the case as expected.

Looking to plan the next one soon!

I think some of the other Tampa-based folks would have more info than I would...I've only been in the area for about a year as a full-time resident.

I've never been to Lutz and have not had the best experiences at International Mall. Depending on what I'm wearing when I visit them the SA are either very dismissive or too aggressive.

Jeff at Harold Freeman is a nice guy and I enjoy chatting with him about different pieces. I have not inquired about a Sub, however.

I would be interested. We can visit ad but most are empty. The 2 AD in Orlando have nothing but the ad in Indiatlantic has pretty good selection. I was there last weekend and saw Rolex gold oysterflex, 2 tone Daytona, white gold Daytona (sold that day). It is too far from Tampa though

At the International Mall, the have multiple brands, not only Rolex, but it belongs to a big group and multiple salesman. I had at the Bellair and Lutz AD better experience, local jewelers more personalized, better chance to establish a business relationship there and to get professional pieces.

I’m in Anna Maria Island. I’d be down to meet up for a few beers with like minded people.
