I started the day in Rochester, and I flew to Chicago O'Hare. A quick check shows that the Watch Idiot Savant of the Month is just 40 minutes behind me, so I decided to find his arrival gate. Here's Tim, coming off the jetway.




We commuted to downtown Chicago, checked in to the hotel. Let's take a stroll and find Marc V for some watch shopping.

The Chicago River:



We visited Tourneau. But we were treated to a viewing of some very special watches at Swiss Fine Time. Here is a tourbillon by F.P. Journe,



That evening, Marc, Tim and I met Johnny, Anjan, Paul Geo, and Paul's son Phil at the ball park.



Marc, Johnny, Anjan, and Tim hanging at the ball game.



Saturday, we decided to check out Millennium Park. If you remember, this was Flat Reto's starting point on his big journey.

There is a big shiny sculpture.



That shiny bean is good for making self-portraits. R to L: Johnny, Phil, Dave, Paul, Anjan, Tim.




Anjan, Johnny, Tim, Dave



Weird optical effects under that bean.




Off to the GTG. L to R: Anjan, Tim, Paul Geo, Phil "Geo", Allan Zirlin, Hector



Allan Zirlin, Hector, Paul December, JeremD, Chris L, Ray, Marc MCV.








Sunday, the Watch Idiot Savant of the Month Tim floats above the clouds at Willis (formerly Sears) Tower.



That's it for my tour of Chicago!
