Surprised it's Manchester and not Liverpool as Chris is a scouser and Liverpool supporter.
Current collection incl Alpina, Breitling, Bulova, Casio, Citizen, Eterna, Oris, Rado, Raymond Weil, Rolex, Seiko, Tag, Timex, Tudor & Victorinox.

Would also love to see Chris whistle stop into North American as well.

Perhaps Boston (Kip proximity), Western USA, Western Canada (one of Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver) then finishing in Toronto. Perhaps the city with the strongest density of CW owners could drive the stop in Western Canada and Western USA?

We have a stellar Craft Beer and Award winning Canadian Wine industry for special interests :)


Submitted for consideration.
New York/New Jersey area.
Does anyone have a list of where the US forumites are based?

Muehle Glashutte, Omega, Oris and Christopher Ward.

Is he really? I knew he was from Liverpool, I have had a season ticket there for over 30 years.
That surely will get any chat off to a good start!

2) with three trips to Edinburgh in the new year to watch rugby, a permission slip might be tricky to get signed. :lol:

But I fully intend to attend.
Well that conversation went better than I could have hoped for. :D I’ll be there. :thumbup:
Trying not to buy any more watches...

... and selling a Scooter FLE and C65LE.

I'm hoping to make the January meeting in Edinburgh. I just need to agree the logistics at home.

I'll probably also go to the Manchester one! :)

Not necessarily.

Dates for the future GTGs are under consideration. Could well be a weekday. A lot depends on Chris Ward's diary and feedback after this first one.

Sorting this out with CW over the next few days or so.

Once we have an indication of numbers and more information, we will let you folks know.
