    Bristol Watch Meet Soon

    It's happening again.
    Who's up for a beer and talking nonsense about watches?

    (Pic from over a year ago ... the last meet)

    I'll be there again if the date works for me, good night, great company and lots of watches to make me post WTB ads!

    Thanks Kirk. Spot on.
    I'll reply to everyone who's commented so far and send a DM to the ones who weren't in on it last time.

    I think you might be in luck Bazz ;-) I just checked and you're still on the @redbarbristol mailing list. We'll get the date out soon on email.
    Cheers, Jason

    All I can say is that we had a private room within a big pub. Was a great venue and we've got a great venue for this next one.
    Just sent you a DM.

    Oh...it's definitely a thing. You'll love it. I found that it kind of brings the hobby to life even more. You make friends, find local people with the same niche interests as you, build up a bit of a network etc.
    Anyway, I just sent you a DM.
    Regards, Jason

    I just sent you a DM.

    Without mentioning names is it the same pub that has been the venue over the last 5 years or so?

    Feel free to pm me with details!

    Oh yeah. There certainly is that element to it. I bought a Lemania off Sweets only because I was able to try it on and also a Smiths Air Ministry from Eddie, also because Sweets had one I could try on....hahaha

    Sorry I won't be able to make this one, but certainly hope I can make subsequent ones.
    As stated, we were about to hold our second one when the first lockdown happened, so we are hoping to hold them a little more often.
    The venue is excellent for us too

    Excellent. I'll be there soon. Nicholas from Fears and David Brailsford from Garrick watches are already there I think.
    See you soon

    Thanks to those who organised, attended from the trade and all those who brought their watches. A great evening. Nowhere else could you see so many different brands represented in one place. Top evening.

    My first watch meet. Really enjoyed it. Funnily enough the watches that most people were interested in from my small collection were the ugly mugs so to speak.. The Monaco, the Citizen Bullhead on a bund, and the Gold Super Seville date adjust copyÖ Thankyou to those who organised it , I will definitely attend the next one

    What an excellent way to spend an evening. A bunch of friendly, interesting guys geeking out about watches - really nice atmosphere & some beautiful pieces to look at.

    Thanks to the organisers & looking forward to the next one already.
