    Time to create a standalone topic on the idea of a Forum get together- which is something I'd love to do. We've discussed it over here:

    https://forums.calibre11.com/threads/going-to-geneva.81590/#post-1047032

    If the interest was there, I could try and organise a visit and tour of TAG Heuer's HQ for us. The perfect time to do it would be around one of the major watch shows, and in this case the best option for me would be SIHH 2019, which starts on 14 January 2019. While TAG Heuer doesn't formally exhibit at SIHH, the LVMH brands do have a seperate exhibition in Geneva at the same time.

    So what could the trip be?
    - 3-4 Days
    - Visit TAG Heuer HQ around 12 January
    - Head to Geneva for TAG Heuer January launches
    - Those interested can then also attend SIHH, which starts on the 14th of Jan
    - All costs would be at our expense

    If we had at least 6 people with a serious interest, I'll discuss with TAG Heuer and we'll try and make it happen!

    I always find it hard to plan trips like these long time in advance (especially since I don't yet have a schedule over my studies over January). With that said, however, I would love to join in I would be allowed!

    I'm definitely interested, will check dates for my January ski trip and take a look at rough costs.

    Sign me up as seriously interested!

    Like @Yago said I would probably skip Sihh...

    @Lugduno, depending on where in the world you are in January, perhaps we could synch the trip from Sweden? :cool:

    To be honest @Jim Dollares, it would be a lot of fun to meet you in person after all the time spent discussing, both here and KS! As for now, if I would be invitied to join I'd probably travel from the Netherlands. Otherwise I'm mostly spending my time in Sweden around the Blekinge/Skåne area!

    I have to say I'm a teensy bit tempted to throw my hat in David, I never made it to CdF in November and there's a particular watch I'd like to see on display at the museum. (well, all of them in truth!)

    Well, in that case I definetley hope that both you and I get invited to the trip. In a worst case scenario we just have to talk with the other guests too and not only between ourselves;)

    HI David, This is very tempting and would love to join this trip but unfortunately, I will be stuck at home at that time with Business guests coming from overseas.
    I might take you up on the invitation to see the museum sometime later in the year if that was possible.

    If the amazing King @Hubert joins us I don't know if I will have the nerves to say anything at all :D

    Thanks for the kind words Jim!

    At this point, unfortunately it's looking like a no for me, due to prior work commitments. :(

    To bad Hubert, it would have been fun to have a conversation with you. Now I need to survive with @Jim Dollares (nothing personally;))
    Thanks a lot for asking around David, I'm sure it will be appreciated by the people that will be able to follow along!

    Polishing his watch collection is a full time job, he has no spare time for such frippery!:p

    I am super interested.

    So what we need to prepare from ourselves is to arrive at Geneva and group up with the rest of Calibre11 team right ?

    That is so very kind and lovely for you to say! Deeply touched and honored; thank you.

    I've been trying to see how I could make this work, but unfortunately there are just too many complications. :(
