    Have you ever "identified " a WUS member in real life?

    Did you know them by their unique watch collection ? Or by accident ? Or while having a drink at a bar with them ?

    Will be interesting to hear if there are any stories .

    Unless in a organised event I think the probability to find a WUS member in the wild is as low as finding a blue lobster in the sea.

    I met one WUS member but it was at a watch shop when I was looking at Grand Seikos. He saw me looking them and we chatted for a few minutes - he was wearing a lovely Aqua Terra. Other than that I've not met anyone from around here except at get togethers. I have met other watch enthusiasts out in the wild though. In fact, just this past weekend I met 3 gents at a bicycle swap meet here in Denver. 2 of them I overheard talking watches so I had to join in, the other guy I saw was wearing a Bremont Supermarine so I figured he had to be a watch nut. Had a nice chat with him as well.

    Yes, but you haven't realized it yet.

    There was actually one in my first Padi dive class, 8 years ago. He brought 4 *nice* watches to the class. He planted the seed in my head to join, back then. As I became more into watches through the years, my google searches kept referring me back to WUS. And I formally joined in 2015 - after lurking for years.

    Cheers!

    I met one who was local and selling a watch I was interested in. I didn't end up buying the watch, but enjoyed talking watches with a fellow WIS for a few minutes.

    Met a member by accident in Venice at the LV shop. Reported on our Schauer/Stowa forum.
