Hi All, Although I have been to many GTGs at various cities, thus far this Worldtime theme GTG took the cake and was simply EPIC ! Without looking at close-ups, how many can you name ?

Jun 25, 2020,10:18 AM

The difficult ones to name naturally are the sealed watches.

We had 2 sets of 5131s !   Which one(s) do you like best or more & why ?

Now we are seeking others to join on this theme.  Please PM me if you are interested !

Bonus point for guessing how many of us at the GTG.

The FAN !

Here in San Francisco all the restaurants were closed except for take away. They're starting outdoor dining now, but no indoor dining. I have a meeting tomorrow in a restaurant. But we're not dining at the restaurant, it's just a meeting space. But we all...

This is incredible Gordon!

Now to the impossible question (I hope you will answer, even if it is difficult/impossible) - which is your favorite - if you could only have ONE? I have been thinking a lot about this question. Hope you are well my friend. Best Christian

Hi Christian, for me the 5131....

 By: GLau : June 27th, 2020-10:38
G is my favorite because it has Asia on the enamel map, Hong Kong on the 24 hour ring, and it has the best color graduations !!!

Incredible GTG Gordon, this is easily the "world" record for this theme!! :-) That 5130 Munich, however, as well as the two NY editions need to be opened and enjoyed :-)

 By: FabR : June 25th, 2020-10:48
I think I can even spot a 5131P on a light brown strap -- never seen that great looking choice before! Was it only you, Fram and Cbb or someone else was in attendance as well? ;-)) Thanks for an epic photoreport!

Hi Fab, good eye on spotting the 5130 Munich ! Unfortunately ....

Cbb and Fram did not attend. If they did, it would have been more "EPIC" than my GTG !

Now you can strap 24 World Times to your wrist at once!

 By: Brandon Skinner : June 25th, 2020-11:23
This way you can always just look to the 12 o'clock position instead of having to search around the dial, and no worries for inconsistencies with Daylight Savings Time, 30 minute time zones, etc... genius!

Hi Brandon, I do not undersand

It was a joke...

 By: mdg : June 27th, 2020-11:09
...because there were so many watches that looked similar.

Out of this world collection by you guys!

Without being disrespectful, I don't quite get the plastic bags and paper boxes, must be a patek thing but looks like it was fun nonetheless!

Hi Arronax, collector friends bought sealed watches from the secondary market and

 By: GLau : June 27th, 2020-10:52
just kept them in the box. They do wish that these pieces were not sealed.

Bloody hell Gordon!

We need someone with a 5531 NYC edition or Geneva edition to go! Then the group will be โ€œcompleteโ€!!

Impressive ... lots of passion ...

 By: small-luxury-world : June 26th, 2020-00:35
on the pro side, but I also see too much sealed ones :-( Any wristwatch needs to get wriststime, itยดs a must in my book. From what I could see, my favourite was still missing ... as I couldnยดt see a Geneva bark ... ;-)

Good one. Donโ€™t agree with you.

 By: FRAMII : June 26th, 2020-12:52
You could say the same with the 5531 nice watch buy why did they put a useless MR on it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Do you prefer this 1415-1 from 1940 ๐Ÿ˜

 By: FRAMII : June 26th, 2020-15:25
Only 1 made so maybe hard to get. I must say in my opinion the chronograph function is not very useful at all in any watches. But i like them but never use the function. When i use my 5930 i just turn on the chronograph and leave it on ๐Ÿ‘ ...  

all the PuristS at the event general do...
