This is the first year I haven't gone to the San Francisco show in six years or so. Always good to see Tim and Rob and the latest stuff from Sinn, Hanhart, etc. Hopefully next year.

Looking forward to seeing pics from the OC show...

Rob & Tim are very cool people to do these roadshow’s

It was a very nice viewing today, small group (8), so it was super casual.

This is amazing in the flesh Image

Image

Image

910 SRS Image

Image

Image

EZM10 is a beast! I wanted to love it, but it wasn’t for me.

Image

Image

Pleasantly surprised by the EZM13

Image

The U1 Blue was sweet, but I really wanted to see the U1 S Blue

Image

3006 Hunter is super cool Image

Image

Image

Wanted to love the 936 but its side profile is like a keg of beer.

Image


In the end, the UX blew me awayImageImageImage
Insane legibility. At extreme viewing angles it’s like the dial is printed on the crystal...amazing clarityImage

Image

They had their other brands as well - Hanhart, Nomos, Fortis and some higher end “hand made” watches.

I’m already looking forward to next years showing.

I took my wife and had a great time as always. Really appreciate them coming out...they are good people. I liked the blue U1 (pictured next to my 212). Didn't take many pictures.

After the event we went to South Coast Plaza to look at more watches- big Lange was the highlight. Got yelled at for taking pictures in Panerai. Would have been nice if they had just asked if we needed help vs. ignoring us. I have come to realize I don't like fancy watch shops, boutiques, and most of the people associated with these places. Sort of turns my stomach.... Makes me appreciate the guys at Watchbuys even more.

Thanks for the pic's Shannon. That 910 SRS is intriguing.
