Any members from Austin, TX?

I'm pretty new to the watch scene...

Are there any watch meetups in Austin? Best ADs? Any vintage dealers in town?

Ben Bridge has two locations Russell Korman usually has good stock and carries Rolex omega and Tudor.
Austin Watch on Burnet has good vintage stuff.
Bernard watch is an online store but will let you make an appointment to see particular models. No Grand Seiko, AP or PP dealers to be found. There is a VC dealer in West Austini have yet to visit.
Lots of members here in Austin but I’ve yet to see a GTG

+1 for Russell Korman. Also, don't hesitate to walk across the street and visit Wilson Jewelers.

My wife bought a DSSD Two Tone from Korman and I've been trying got get a Rolex from them for over a year. Losing hope, went to Ben Bridge and they said getting me what I want shouldn't be too hard, we'll see.

+1 for Korman. They are great. Been on the Rolex sub list for about 6 months. They sell Tudor and most everything in stock for fellow Tudor fans.

I haven't been to Korman yet, but I've given up on Ben Bridge in the Domain. 3+ years with no Rolex availability for me--so I went gray market.

Korman is unbelievably pretentious. They’ll pawn you off to someone who knows nothing about watches and keep you clear of any Rolex.

I had to buy quite a few pieces before Ben Bridge called me.
