And to prove that Memphis cuisine is more than barbecue, we met at..



..ye olde Italian Rebel. Pretty decent pizza (for Memphis.. you Chicagoans would likely rank it no higher than "edible" Rolling on the floor laughing my a.. off) but excellent sandwiches and pasta. Thumbs up!

Bro. George Barber brought along several watches that I've really been itchin' to see "in the flesh", one being..

..The Perpetual GMT. I was very impressed with this one! The fit & finish is top-notch. To my eyes, on a par with some RMW I've seen. And that includes the decorated movement, which is very handsome indeed. Perpetual is one of the best values currently out there, IMHO!

Nor did..



..the Binnacle Anchor disappoint! You know how sometimes you'll read much discussion and see many photos of a watch online then, when you finally see on in person you're underwhelmed? Not the case here! The orange-on-white Binnacle is definitely on me WIShlist. Wink

Bro. George had a third watch that I've been really keen on seeing, the Orient 60th Anniversary L.E. but, alas, if you think the Binnacle photo is bad, you should see the Orient photos. Eek! Suffice to say that the Orient is a beautiful, well-finished timepiece.. which, for some reason, didn't grab me to the degree I expected. I am confused I mean, don't get me wrong! I like it a lot! But I'm not tempted to say "Damn the CC balance! and order one forthwith, as I am with the Perpetual and the Bernhardt.

And, of course, I'm a sucker for..

..a . I'm in WIS Honeymoon with this tritium-tube model! Never realized it had the red logo on the crown, another nice touch.

Another tritium-tube model which I really liked..

..was the Ball Automatic. Gorgeous watch! You can see a better photo of it HERE.

And, of course, it's always a treat when Bro. Chris King opens up the Number One Watch Box. Drooling Envious WIS Honeymoon

Alas, my photos of most of Chris's watches didn't turn out, but here's one that I can't resist sharing..

I love this one more every time I see it!

Here are the watches I brought along...



..I believe in travelling light. Smile Also had the Seiko 6309-7040 on the left wrist, and the Craftsman 80th Anniversary on the right wrist.

And the other star of the show..

Great food, great watches, and great company! It sure was a pleasure meeting up with y'all again, me brothers.. but next time let's do it at greg honeycutt's place! Rolling on the floor laughing my a.. off

Cheers!

Edit: corrected spelling, added Seiko and Craftsman links (Hey! I am angry! I was in a hurry when I first posted it, and couldn't be bothered to look 'em up Wink).
