I would vote for the Thursday at Heller Jewelers, I was just there recently and felt very welcomed. I even met the owner's son Brandon Heller. The guy who assisted me the last time was Joe and he was a very kind gentleman as well.

I missed the last GTG but there's a better chance I can make it to this one if the location is San Ramon. It would be my very first GTG as well as I've been a member of this forum for over 10 years but still have never been to one.

It seems that 19th at Tourneau is going to work better, don't think 17 in San Ramon is possible for me. But who knows, its a long way off! Either way, thanks for putting this together.

I'll try to make it if scheduling permits. Heller would be great since it's local for me.

Please clarify if that means you ARE on the for 19th, or if neither date works for you.
(As it says above, please text to me directly, so we don't fill up this thread with private back / forth. )

Really nice to meet you last October, Chris. I hope you can make it!

My vote is Tourneau on the 19th so I can make the drive up from Monterey and stay overnight. Perhaps dinner beforehand?

Contact Dr. Bob Miller at <rbmiller.eye@gmail.com> with your contact information. Bob has been putting a lot of time and effort in organizing this and deserves all the credit for making it happen.

You're a good guy, Stan. Thanks for the kind words.

But . . . I'm beginning to understand what makes Steve so upset when he does the Giveaways on AfterDark - and people don't follow the instructions ("Put your Username in the PayPal box!"), even after he's written it SO many times.
If you notice, I've written for interested folks to contact me directly, so we can keep things a little more secure, and not "out there" on the Web). STILL, people are responding here on TRF! . . .
Hard to fathom....

Sorry to be getting negative in any way. Reality is: this is FUN!!

Anyway, we'll have a good group here, I'm sure. Thank you again for your quick reply, amigo!

Hey, my heartfelt apologies for sounding nasty in that last note. I had just had a frustrating day with SO many other (non-watch-related) items going on, and irresponsible vendors not responding… and then I looked at TRF and saw your note. Again, sorry for calling you out for something that we’ve ALL done!! Believe me, I’m guilty of it, too!
Mea culpa.


I see that you’ve sent an e-mail and will respond, of course! Thank you, my fellow GMT lover.

That was the plan, but it looks like my in-laws will be out of town that weekend and won't be able to watch the kiddos...so the family-mover it is.

It's ok - we'll be taking the boys to Alcatraz that Sunday!

I guess that all makes sense .. . . Because you, after all, are only purchasing your timepieces so you can take care of them until your sons "acquire" them, right??
