Hello! Bay Area Watch Friends! We are still on for tomorrow so just a friendly reminder. We have 10-20 confirmed, so should be a great time.

I confirmed there is space for us and I will tell them we are the "SF Watch Group". I will wear a green blazer jacket and will be on the look out for others. PM me for contact info.

See you tomorrow at 6PM!

JC

San Francisco GTG - WILD SUCCESS!!!

Hello all! A great turn out for a low key SF G2G. Thanks to everyone who came and those who couldn't but still showed support. An incredible group of guys with even more impressive wrist candy. We were doing something right, because the single women's group picked up our tab for the night.

IWC and Rolex + Tudor had strong showings, as well as Patek and Cartier.
Tag & Omega racing in strong form.
Vintage Seikos in the house.
And my vote for strongest showing was the 1960s Doxa.

We discussed a few different ideas for frequency and decided to target G2G every 6 weeks.

#1 Lesson learned: we need to bring a better camera! Still got a few good shots, though.

Take a look and let me know what you think.
