I have a wild imagination so part of me was thinking that there was going to be a room of snooty folks judging everyone else there. I literally imagined a man looking like Thurston Howell III from Gilligan's Island sneering over his martini and saying to his face lifted harpy of a wife... "Look lovey, they allowed those uncouth ruffians in the door!" I
should not have worried though, because the reality was 180 degrees opposite of at daydream nightmare. My buddy, Scott, and I were met with a sincere and friendly greeting by our hosts who attended to all the guests with warmth and knowledge. These guys have class!

The original main attraction for me was seeing the Sinn watches in person. I have long admired his authentic, no nonsense maker of excellent technologically advanced and rugged tool watches. They are everything that I like about watches and nothing that I don't. I don't recall seeing any cliche over dressy boardroom watches that I just don't care about. Instead, I saw aviator, chronograph and diver watches. I was in watch nirvana.

I cannot tell you how amazing the workmanship was, but it was stunning. The octopus on the front event continued onto the back so it looked like the creature was embracing the pulsing balance wheel. Wow. I want it.
