Excellent!

A proper outing

Are we doing a stall or waiting for the next one for that?

A very pleasant visit as always especially when meeting up with some of the guys, I went with the intention of just having an enjoyable morning out but when I saw this 0624 from 75 I couldent resist it, dident need it but just couldent leave it behind

I know the others had some nice pick ups as well

Some really silly prices though for crap, for example a 6139-6002 with lots of problems and cosmetically horrible for 950 !! if it had been a minter all original then ok but..............

Where did Andy get to? Im guessing he made off with a secret haul of goodies.
A great day with good friends and lots to look at.



I picked up this Stargate with box, spare links and hang tag.

Hi all

Saw a few of you today - I went with no real plan, and came away with a Panda

Spent much of the afternoon fettling and cleaning it... underneath the somewhat beaten up crystal, it's got a great dial & hands:
