Pennsylvania Hotel 21st/22nd July 2006

Need a memory refresh about the organizational part? Go here please

Please also watch Coach's (directory, text by John Lind) great "New York State of Mind" video of the conference!

Thank you Vivian (Mrs. Moy), Adam and Coach for your pictures that I have combined in the gallery below!
Thank you all that helped to organize and participated, it was certainly a great pleasure to finally meet all of you in person!

What a surprise! Today August 21st 2006 this book from Chuck in Reno, NV arrived at my doorstep. I had to take a picture with other souvenirs!

Chris Moy with a tiny Russian cantine diver :) Thanks Ed Brandwein for CARRRYING it along and scare the Tourneau folks LOL!

FRIDAY 21st June 2006 meet 3 PM: rain and fun! After "hitting" Tourneau we ate some great pizza (thanks Adam) and continued to enjoy TGIF

SATURDAY 22nd July 2006 9 AM: PMWFerencers are starting to meet at the lobby of the PENNSYLVANIA hotel in Manhattan

Thank you Chris for always being on the phone making sure no one would miss the stroll!

Better sit a bit, there will be quite some walk ahead of us

Pouring in some Cappuccino "fuel" for the busy and exciting day to come!

The flea market was done fairly quickly, most watch sellers have relocated to a different market. This is the whole sale district

Thanks Coach for some street and sky impressions

It was time for lunch: STOUTS just next to the Penn offered great beers and food

A beer enjoyed with friends always lifts the mood ;)

Cheers Don!

Time to move to the PMWFerence Room "Paris"

The PMWF GMT prototype in black

Thank you Mrs. Moy for taking many pictures during Saturday! Great documentation again (Vivian also documented New Orleans 2004)

Thank you John for all your work for the PMWFerence NYC06!

Our youngest participant :)

Bill Yao's demonstration was certainly a highlight! Thanks Bill!

Pulling the ticket of the 1st door prize: a MarcelloC Nettuno 3 sponsored by Matt V. from MarcelloC USA, thanks Matt!

The lucky winner was Joe! He is still overwhelmed by this great prize on this picture

Now some DINNER was needed after a long and intensive watch conference! Les Halles proved to be the ideal location! Great food and ambiente!

Time to say good-bye! Sob, sob ... :)

Bye bye NYC, you had been good to us!

I decided to put the hardcore watch pictures at the end of the gallery :) The social aspect of this meet was as important as the watches!

Watch the window title bar if you like to know the owner ;)
