Saturday morning in San Diego!!!

I found this Seal Alarm has a great wrist presence. Ed, I really like this one!!!!










Now THIS really has wrist presence, LOL!!!!!!

Can you see the 'bluish' color on the dial?
















I almost convinced Eng for an even trade, LOLOL!!!!!!
(I wish!!!)




With Brian:






Dead seconds Tourbillon with Black MOP dial, AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!










One of the local ADs was holding a 'watch fair' and we all got invites.

Some decided to go to the SD Zoo, but I headed out early to the store:




Once there, I saw some various non-Panerai brands:








































With store manager Liz and my buddy Matt:




WOW, I really liked these two and colors are awesome!!!!

But, which one to chose, can you guess which one I finally selected????!!!!!!






























With Leyla, the sister store manager:








Yup, the Orange to match my JM shoes, LOLOL!!!!!!











I couldn't wait to get my new Swiss Army Dive Master 500 in the water
















OK Mikey, just one picture because I have to get ready for tonight, LOL!






My combo for the big dinner:




Greg's RD tourbillon diver:
























At the Saturday night venue:


































The next morning I headed to La Costa:


















It was a much smaller crowd and I stayed for an hour before heading back to LA:
































Back on the road to LA




Only in SoCal, LOL!










The weather was not so nice




There was a nice rainbow the morning after the rain!!!!!






Heading to LAX for my flight home!
































It was a wonderful weekend & I am happy to see so many old friends and to make so many new ones.

The only problem with a big GTG such as this, is that there isn't enough time to spend with everyone, so I hope to get to see everyone again soon!

I wanted to thank the organizers for all the time and planning that went into this weekend.

Chad, once again your hospitality is amazing and always make me feel most welcome at the Boutique, thank you!

Hammer, you and your family are always in our thoughts and prayers. We love love you mate

Thanks all for reading and stay tuned for a surprise destination this weekend!

Cheers

Saturday morning in San Diego!!!

I found this Seal Alarm has a great wrist presence. Ed, I really like this one!!!!










Now THIS really has wrist presence, LOL!!!!!!

Can you see the 'bluish' color on the dial?
















I almost convinced Eng for an even trade, LOLOL!!!!!!
(I wish!!!)




With Brian:






Dead seconds Tourbillon with Black MOP dial, AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!










One of the local ADs was holding a 'watch fair' and we all got invites.

Some decided to go to the SD Zoo, but I headed out early to the store:




Once there, I saw some various non-Panerai brands:








































With store manager Liz and my buddy Matt:




WOW, I really liked these two and colors are awesome!!!!

But, which one to chose, can you guess which one I finally selected????!!!!!!






























With Leyla, the sister store manager:








Yup, the Orange to match my JM shoes, LOLOL!!!!!!











I couldn't wait to get my new Swiss Army Dive Master 500 in the water
















OK Mikey, just one picture because I have to get ready for tonight, LOL!






My combo for the big dinner:




Greg's RD tourbillon diver:
























At the Saturday night venue:


































The next morning I headed to La Costa:


















It was a much smaller crowd and I stayed for an hour before heading back to LA:
































Back on the road to LA




Only in SoCal, LOL!










The weather was not so nice




There was a nice rainbow the morning after the rain!!!!!






Heading to LAX for my flight home!
































It was a wonderful weekend & I am happy to see so many old friends and to make so many new ones.

The only problem with a big GTG such as this, is that there isn't enough time to spend with everyone, so I hope to get to see everyone again soon!

I wanted to thank the organizers for all the time and planning that went into this weekend.

Chad, once again your hospitality is amazing and always make me feel most welcome at the Boutique, thank you!

Hammer, you and your family are always in our thoughts and prayers. We love love you mate

Thanks all for reading and stay tuned for a surprise destination this weekend!

Cheers
