an afternoon well spent ... full AP SIN Purists GTG report

not many knew this but as of Saturday those in attendance at this wonderful little GTG would know... The AP forum on the purists was the first watch forum that drew me into this crazy addictive hobby of ours. It was there that I learned watches could be so much more than just functional timekeepers and the wonderful history behind Audemars Piguet and some of the amazing and beautiful timepieces they have made through the years.

it was therefore a very happy prospect for me to meet with the founder of this forum and of the purists and with other local afficianados in Singapore. our gtg took place at a nice little restaurant in town, La Strada, and was as the subject line says, was an afternoon well spent. thanks again to Thomas and fellow purists that attended and for bringing some truly droolworthy watches I got to finally appreciate in the metal ;)

my pics for the day below... i just realised how many didn't turn out that well, especially for the lunch companions for the day so do check out MTFs great report for a fuller picture

headed down to the gtg with this on my wrist

Hands down, my favorite AP is the NY Boutique. I love that piece. Too bad it's an arm and a leg to find and buy. That GTG looked like fun!
