I've been getting PMs from people asking if it is too late to join the party and attend the Beverly hills GTG. It is not too late. All are welcome. As Frosty indicates above, you do not need an invitation. Just come on down. We'll be expecting you.

Sorry to hear that, John. You will be missed. Heal up, and we'll see you at the next one.

Get well soon, John!

Great work, by the way, everyone! I was just on phone with the Grill and all the booths and large tables were reserved until 12:30p! I'm assuming (and hoping) that this was your work!

Until soon,
Veli

I have called and made a reservation for one booth and was not allowed to make another. We need three more people to call and make a reservation for the other three tables.

This is where we meet.

I just made a reservation for 5 people.

That's terrific, Sheldon. This is going to be a B.H. GTG takeover of the entire restaurant, I think.

The plan for tomorrow is a leisurely lunch, followed by visits on foot to various watch stores. Everything is a la carte. You may participate at your own discretion. I have been receiving backchannel information that we may have the opportunity to visit some stores under special arrangement, so there may be some unique opportunities to see and to buy. All of this is thanks to our outstanding Beverly Hills GTG members. Same is true for the items that will be given away in the raffle. Great people. These folks came forward on their own to offer help and contribute generously, and they have my gratitude.

See you mañana.

It was great to see old friends and meet some new ones.

That was a lot of fun.
Thank you all for bringing and sharing your beautiful watches.
And as Wes said, "Thank you Mark".
Already looking forward to the next GTG. I don't think we hit every watch boutique on Rodeo Drive.

Thank you so much, Mark, for organizing this GTG! And thank you everyone for contributing all those great presents for the raffle and, more importantly, their time for this wonderful meeting!

It was such a pleasure to meet everyone, and, hey, it wasn't until 5p that I actually ended up checking the time! I am already looking forward to next meeting . . . Robert tells me that he will host us at the Tiffany's VIP room then!

Hey! First, it was great meeting all you guys and a very fun event, but who took the pic of the 43mm sea dweller! That needs to be posted. I was very impressed with that watch over all.

More More More Pictures!!! - Watch Shopping

Cruising around Beverly Hills... There were watches to be found... I especially like the one at Geary's Rolex Boutique with the guard eyeing us... I don't think he know what to make of us...

Paul, I think Rolex created this watch specifically with your wrist in mind. It sure looked great on you and was definitely calling your name.

Wow! Looks like a good time was had by all. I wish I could have made it but remodeling our garage and had to meet with contractors.

Maybe we will have a GTG in San Diego, CA later this Summer. 👍

Thank you so much, Sheldon, for these amazing pictures! We did have a lot of fun and tried out many amazing pieces including an AP RO 15202OR (40th anniversary Jumbo in pink gold), PP 5980AR (TT Nautilus Chronograph), and, last but not least, the SD43. Let's not forget the sightings of some unique vintage pieces such as the Presidential Oysterquartz and the cream dial Explorer II (16550).

It was a fun time indeed!

Looks like a great time! Thanks for posting pics. Daniel at Geary's looks like he enjoyed having a big TRF fly-by!

Look forward to the next one.

Thanks for another great GTG. Already looking forward toward the next event. Sorry for the delayed response but my account was hacked and I was down for a few days until the MODs worked it out.

WatchTime Rodeo Drive

Just in case any of you boys are in the mood for a trip back to Rodeo Drive soon, thought you might be interested in this. Unfortunately, I can't make it.
