    One planned every two weeks for the forceable - anyone is welcome - it’s been good so far - next on 23rd (next week)

    Topic for 23rd has already been suggested: “bring along / share an un-usual watch” can be any price bracket. Of course we can have any thing else - it’s not a formal group!

    I’ll try and do screen grab to share - if that’s acceptable to everyone on the call.

    Until then. Happy Thursday!!

    All good fun, I enjoyed it and I look forward to the next one! Showing watches isn’t easy but the banter makes up for that.

    Thanks due to Martyn and Kirk for making this happen.

    Hi All, sorry I forgot about this! Yes happy to host on zoom - please send me a PM and I'll circulate joining instructions.

    May I suggest an 20:05 start to allow the UK-based folk to do our weekly NHS clapping ritual first? (Plus I always struggle to make 19:30 due to the kids etc).

    EDIT: I've sent some PMs, but please message me if I've missed you, or if you'd like to join for the first time. Fancy dress optional.

    Sorry chaps - as I signed out of my mobile zoom account I had to make someone the lead - I chose Woodacre1983 (he’s a trustworthy sort of chap!). I had no idea that meant when he signed out before others it will kill the chat!

    - - - Updated - - -

    Happy to host again if anyone is still keen?

    I should be back next week, but also Kirk (I hope) is hosting as I only have basic zoom access.

    I may join in;

    I haven’t been on this forum for far too long and I realise how much I’ve missed it!

    PS I just zoomed in (using the forum on my phone) and saw the usernames.

    Maybe I should send Woodacre back the razor he kindly once sent me ;-)

    Evening All,

    The fortnightly virtual GTG is happening tomorrow, Thursday 21 May starting at 20.05 UK time. I’ll PM the regulars with Zoom details tomorrow, anyone else is very welcome - just PM me an interest in joining.

    Tomorrow we’re in for a treat as Walkerwek1958 will give a virtual masterclass in how to service and repair watches. Highlights will be how to polish hesalite whilst drinking whisky, and how to repair vintage Omegas whilst never complaining about the Swatch group restricting the availability of parts.

    See you tomorrow!

    OK PMs sent. There are 26 on the invite list so it might be a little busy if we all turn up! PM me if you want to attend but haven't received an invite.

    Tonight's required attire: chicken costumes.

    See you at 20:05, post-clapping.

    Great meet up - much inappropriate banter of course and some great knowledge shared by our resident watchmaker Paul - many thanks to you and everyone!

    I had reservations (I spend far too much of my day on video conf calls these days) but I thoroughly enjoyed the banter.

    Thanks to Kirk for hosting & others for attending.

    Great fun. Thanks to the organisers.

    Amongst the many things I learnt last night were the existence of phallic shoes and what happens if you eat batteries.

    This morning I somewhat regretted drinking whisky until midnight with Walkerwek1958! Was good to swap random chemistry “funnies” though!
