Really nice pictures, very insightful and informative. Always nice to learn about the lesser know brands. Look like nice watches.

I guess you can't behave on a event like this, that is the reason you have to stay home.

Thanks sharing.
It took me a while to understand the door reference but I got it!

I should say that they could have hired you to take the stock photos of the new watches. From what I could see they were a bit boring.

You should get one of those life-size cardboard cut out pictures of Paul and bring on your trips.
