    You know, their are only about 6 stalls I would be interested in.

    • SuperStrapper

      Crazy talk! That’s a fabulous list of brands, top to bottom.

      • Raymond Wilkie

        I’ve has a better look and it’s only 5

      • DanW94

        Agree, that’s an impressive line-up.

      • Independent_George

        There are only about 5 stalls I wouldn’t spend much time at.
        It’s a very impressive line-up.

    • Berndt Norten

      If 6 was 9
      Would Ray…mond mind?

  • Tony NW

    I’m with @raymondwilkie:disqus ; I jotted down the top 16 brands I’d be interested in visiting to hear about new innovations, etc., in two tiers, eight in the “If I’m in town, I’d go” and eight in the “as long as I’m there” category.

    Only six of the sixteen even are on the list. (I don’t count Seiko and Grand Seiko as two.) Half on each list.

    • Independent_George

      The only brands I wouldn’t spend a lot of time at are Bremont, MLX, Montblanc and Zenith because I can see them anytime at Feldmar and there aren’t any new releases that tickle my fancy. But I’d still stop by their stalls. I might blow off Forsey because the rep earlier this year at WatchTimeLA was a complete d-bag and I hold grudges. Otherwise, I’d spend a decent amount of time everywhere else.

        yeah in my experience events like these absolutely suck, you wait in line just to get a few seconds with the watch while the guy at the booth is trying to get you to move on so he can let the guy behind you try it on. Much better to go to the AD yourself, so you can get the full ass kissing experience

      • SuperStrapper

        I thought that was the DeBethune rep. Or have you been scorned again.
