    Sorry chaps, a later round on the golf course and came back shattered. Seems another good one and hope not too many sore heads this morning (I suspect there may be a few!).

    It was a quieter one last night, Janet didn’t make it either!

    We missed you all so drank to cheer ourselves up.

    Apologies here too, I was genuinely tired and would have made worse company than I normally do. Hopefully I'll see you all in a fortnight.

    By my reckoning tomorrow is another fortnight so it’s vGTG time....Zoom details to be sent via PM sometime tomorrow afternoon.

    This week’s topic: what are your watch related pet-hates?

    And this week’s question: how will Martyn show off his new AP without his wife noticing?!

    I shall leave the dress code to Martyn and Unclealec as they are the only ones you abide by it. (Given this heat I’m tempted to suggest ‘naked and covered in crushed ice’)

    Apologies again; unlikely to be joining. Not cast in stone, but I may be away from home.

    Send me the link just in case my plans change.

    I think I have a dive watch, where the date is at 4:12, not 4:30.

    I could wear it on a leather strap, if that would help.😀

    Zoom invitations sent by PM. Apologies if you have recieved one having already told me you can't make it (I keep a spreadsheet of people to invite!).

    Let me know if I've missed you (it's a rubbish spreadsheet...).

    As ever, new people are very welcome to join - we have new faces every week. Surprisingly most of them like to drink beer and talk nonsense about watches too! Just drop me a PM.

    See you in 1 3/4 hrs...

    An enjoyable evening.

    The highlight was Lee introducing us to his Badger.

    I just realised tomorrow is the day for another vGTG....but I’m on holiday! I could still host (unless someone else can?) but won’t be able to join you.....(well unless I manage to put the wife and kids to bed early and sneak to the hotel bar ). Want me to PM a zoom as normal in any case?

    Back on Monday so could do next week no probs Alec-sensei. Happy to go with the consensus....but as Paul can’t make tonight either perhaps we should defer.

    Guess I'm drinking on my own then! I'll have to pretend to be talking to some randoms on the internet whilst looking at watches as well. The misses won't know any different..

    I was going to offer to host tonight; but I would have been such a big disappointment to you when I closed the meeting at 10pm to go and make myself a cup of cocoa.

    Having returned home at around 8:45 from an early evening drink (or three) in Wakefield I would've been far too tired to do it justice!

    For those relatively new members -

    it would be great to see you. It’s a chance to “meet” but you have to bring your own drinks. Sometimes we talk about watches mostly it’s about others things. Just say you want to come along and a PM will be sent.

    Invitations sent via PM

    As always please let me know if I've missed you! As Martyn says new faces are very welcome, we have new people almost every week.

    Tonight's suggested topics:
    - when will the new 41mm Steinharts be released?
    - are 'homages' just ghastly fakes?
    - who will sell Kirk280 a 5513 for what they paid for it in 1980?

    Tonight's suggested dress theme:
    - dress like your favourite Rolex character
    - dress like your favourite AD
    - dress like Unclealec (when he's dressed like Orville)

    Other topics and themes are available.....

    Virtual TZ GTG. . .

    I popped into Waitrose for a sandwich earlier and was intrigued by this ...




    ... enough to buy one.



    I may be a little tired later
