SLO_Michael_1_Web.jpg
T2177 viewsAnd my final picture is of Rodrigo's uncle (?) Michael who, along with Erick's friend Travis, were unjustly exposed to this maniacal crowd of insane watch 'enthusiasts' on an otherwise innocent Saturday afternoon. I'm sure years from now their fiends, family and therapists will trace their odd behavior back to a certain day on October, and wonder what happened that day!?!?!
SLO_Rodrigo_1_Web.jpg
T1174 viewsI believe these are some of Rodrigo's watches! Some of the mods look familiar!
SLO_Rodrigo_2_Web.jpg
T1265 viewsMore of what I hope are Rodrigo's watches! I saw a few Explorer’s that day!
SLO_Ken_1_Web.jpg
T13108 viewsHere are a couple of boxes of Ken's. I wish you could see all the big dialed super legible watches in the left hand box, a couple of big bold Kienzle watches and so forth. But at least you can see a couple of lovely "grails" in the right hand box, I think they may say "Doxa" on the dial!
SLO_Ken_2_Web.jpg
T14308 viewsOh man! What's in this picture, a complete set of Orient Beasts, a White Knight, and gorgeous Tissot, a pair of Orient Explorer's, then just a Marcello in the foreground and couple of humdrum Omega's on the left! Okay, I take em!
SLO_Ken_4_Web.jpg
T15344 viewsI would have called this box of Ken's the "Russian and Invicta" box but the Swiss Military and Seiko just ruined it for me! I wish my picture of his Rolex Explorer had come out, it's hiding just to the left of these! I didn't realize how small the Explorer's are, but to me it's a plus! I like "smaller" watches!
SLO_Erick_1_Web.jpg
T1698 viewsJust around the corner from Ken's "spread" was Erick's modest but eclectic collection, including a neat blue Kinetic that I don't remember seeing before, SBCJ007 or something (Sorry Erick I forgot), but I like it!
SLO_Food_1_Web.jpg
T1759 viewsUht-oh! Everything stopped when the food came out! You think to yourself, "Ah, I'm not really hungry." but then when you smell the food!

But wait, where are Anjan and Erick??
SLO_Food_2_Web.jpg
T1857 viewsAh, taking advantage of the lack of crowding around Ken's exhibit to maul a few of his beauties! Erick arrived a bit later than most, I bet he had already eaten lunch, but Anjan? I don't know, I think maybe he just doesn't eat, but he has to get that energy from SOMEWHERE!?!
SLO_Rafael_1_Web.jpg
T1956 viewsAnother later arrival was the very nice gentleman Rafael, who brought some classic favorites of ours and small group of really BIG watches!
SLO_Rafael_2_Web.jpg
T20126 viewsI failed to get a usable picture of his larger watches, but I did manage to capture this pair, just a little Doxa and Marathon! That's a nice pair to be holding!
SLO_1_Web.jpg
T0151 viewsHere is a reminder of our host location, the Downtown Brewing Company in Sleepy San Luis Obispo. I didn't get a chance to try any beer, but I had a pretty good burger!
SLO_Anjan-Russell_1_Web.jpg
T0289 viewsOne of the most energetic of the early arrivals had to be Russell! I don't know how many trips he had to make to get all his stuff inside! Tons of Seiko Divers, 6105, 6390, and a bunch of exotic Seiko 5s too!
And another high energy guy was Anjan! He and Russell seemed to never stop moving! In fact I never got to take a picture of Anjan and his watches, he was always somewhere else! Usually taking a picture! Sorry Anjan!
SLO_Russell_2_Web.jpg
T0392 viewsHere is one of the exotic Seikos that Russell was exhibiting, a two-tone Bellmatic that was in very nice condition!
SLO_Russell_3_Web.jpg
T04143 viewsThis is one of Russell's boxes of Seikos, mostly Seiko 5s, and interesting model at the lower right!
SLO_Russell_4_Web.jpg
T05111 viewsRussell also a couple of small leather cases filled with 6105s in beautiful condition, and a box full of 6309's. And there is a "Military Diver" in the foreground along with a cool Seiko travel Alarm!
SLO_Russell_5_Web.jpg
T0654 viewsAh, here are some of the 6105's with a few other watches around the edges!
SLO_LewsBox_Web.jpg
T0793 viewsThis is a special picture for Lew B. that Russell asked me to take!
Hey Lew, this box is for you! Nice pattern on the dial of that Seiko 5 eh?
SLO_Joon_2_Web.jpg
T0852 viewsUnfortunately all my pictures of Joon's watches are useless blurs, it seems like I had the worst trouble on the middle of the floor, along the edges I got a lot more useful pictures. But I did catch him later in the day when Anjan was asking us to pose with our watches! Anjan's one like this is better, but I had to post one picture of Joon! He worked so hard to get this organized (along with Rodrigo).
SLO_Jose_1_Web.jpg
T0959 viewsHere are some of the little beauties Jose brought along, I don't think you can see enough detail in my blurry pictures but the dials and styles were awesome!
SLO_Jose_2_Web.jpg
T10161 viewsThese are some more of Jose's watches, a few beautiful Atlantic brand watches, a good looking Invicta (!?!?!) and more!
