dumb question, but what does WIS stand for?
I am new to this forum and love watches (especially rolex and omega) and have been collecting for awhile.
Just purchased my first genuine datejust.
Want to see what all the fuss is about :D

Just saw this thread. If you see Stacy again, Trace, say hi back from me. And tell her I've got the Tudor in my rotation.

Those of us not attending will be looking forward to pics and any commentary that can be shared regarding the Tudor introductions. Much appreciated in advance.

And, of course, pics of the matter/anti-matter meeting of Jocke and Paul would be appreciated as well.

I see the Bellagio Rolex store got hit with a robbery last night that smashed up the place pretty good. Hope that gets sorted prior to GTG. No one hurt, luckily.

Yes, but it is kept in a safe guarded by minions.

Sad, but it happens. They do turn around pretty quick. We had a private event at Chopard a DAY after the Patek dealer was hit a few feet away. By the time the Chopard gathering happened, the Patek dealer had fixed Windows, displays, etc. you could not tell there was a problem.
