Well my first WIS meet ever, here in Montreal. What a fantastic time, and I tell you the time just flew on by.
We were all kids in a candy store. So much to see, great selections everyone brought along for the show and tell.
It also became a swap meet later on in the evening. LOL. Wheeling and dealing all in good fun and happy campers before we all bid adieu.
There were only four of us, but can only imagine if there would've been more.
I learned soooo much from these guys, and got to try on and see many watches I've wondered about or longed for.
I know my 6.5" limitations and what I can pull off for my future buys.
I'm totally blown away by some of these classics, and all in my corner of the world. We truly don't have to look far to have some hands on playtime.
Many watches here have confirmed my wants and some I'll be taking off the list due to my wrist limitiations.

Jean-Pierre mon ami, love your Aqualand classic CO22, and those Seiko spirits are very nice. Your PMMM mod is killer. I forgot to take pics of those. Too many distractions.LOL

Steve, great watch box carpentry, very skilled with quality home for the herd. Loved the vintage pieces, and SeaViper is killer.

Jerome, dude, your collection fits me so well. LOL. My wrists shots have me sold on most. Too many to list. haha.

What have I learned, there are so much more that I want. LOL. Like Citizens, new and vintage. Need to enter that realm.
So fun, I encourage all to do it if given the chance. I so wish I could make the NYC wis meet. That should be really cool, in my favourite city.

Hope you all enjoy, and maybe we can do this next time with more WIS-ers coming out to play.
Thanks Steve for organizing a great bunch for cool meet.

Cheers, Dave.

Here's the guys, Jerome and Jean-Pierre.
