NEW the london watch club

hello everyone

ive been thinking we are all keyboard warriors in our own way, so why not see if we can meet up in person and have proper discussions face to face over a beer or food etc

i realize this might be hard to organize at first and would love some help to see if it is possible

i say LONDON WATCH CLUB , but thats only cause im very close to that area,and also where most of the boutiques are, but surrounding people are more than welcome, and so are the people from around the world if they are visiting and fancy meeting with some like minded people

as i say i obviously need help organizing , and i wouldnt want it to be a weekly meet possibly every 2 months to start off with and see where we end up


so what do you lot think, and be honest if you think its a turkey , say so , if you thinks its a good idea, let me know


regards danestaff

Should also say, if I get enough interest, I suggest a date in March and depending on numbers, we can arrange something between us etc


. I actually think it could be fun, as sometimes friends have no ideas what's on our wrist or if your married etc, they just roll your eyes when u start talking about watches

Something of interest for sure however I'm not based in London and getting me booked in sounds easier said than done.

Of course I'm just putting feelers out atm,

I have no idea if this is a goer or a non starter,

But from the responses so far seems like a good idea
