Our first 2020 Parisian GTG with our new member Waitlisted!

James, aka Waitlisted, decided on a " coup de tête " to come for a few days in Paris and asked if it was possible to meet some local members. 

After a few phone calls and private messages, we could organize something spontaneous with the usual suspects which was quite a performance since it was Xmas Holidays. 

At the notable exception of Fx who couldn't come, we had James, Bill, Mahesh, Rascal, Mike H and myself, plus 2 wonderful wives, N and I. 

A nice place, known by some of you: 

none

And some very cool watches, such as this Konstantin Chaykin I wanted to see again ( one of our friends already showed it to me some weeks ago during another GTG ). Funny, cool and original.

The very popular Ming:

My first attempt to take a lume shot, with Rascal' help, on a Ressence.

none

Very special, I must say, but I prefer the lume shot, which is spectacular. 

none

And the very famous FPJ Chronomètre Bleu... I really like this tantalum case!

none

And the movement, which is truly eye catching. 

none

There were other watches, of course, but our guests will certainly post pictures of what they saw during this event.

As always a great moment of camaraderie, friendship, and the pleasure to meet some new friends, such as James, around some nice drinks and good food. 

Merci, James, for coming! 

All the best,

Nicolas

Nope sorry not this time I had my phone only with me but no camera, and it was of no use in this darkness . However a pic I made few days ago of a watch you know well and was one of the topics of discussion last night ...

Hmmmmm, this one... What a dial!

Yes what a dial... A pity that the pics loose so much resolution when uploaded because the detail of the two guillochés patterns on the main dial and sub counters is very nice and has been lost here...

Vintage Rolex Booklets - Spotting the fakes

Bill
Avatar
Vintage Rolex booklets are great part of a full set. It adds another dimension to how the watch was intended to be used. The booklets are half owners manual and half advertising presentations. Sometimes we are lucky to find full sets from original owners and those are the standards that we go by.
