AMCHPR: Part of Day 1 at CWCF 2019...

In my last post 3F offered, after commenting on the dis-utility of tourbillons:

I have two tourbillons. Yes, they don't work better. Yes, they sure are purty.

And it's a real hoot sitting around talking watches with Guo Ming...

And with AHCI co-founder Vincent Calabrese...

...and goofing with selfies until someone else helped, with Ma Xushu, and Tan Zehua :-) ...

...and 360 trippin' with Lin Yong Hua (in the white shirt).

Lots more to come, but I'm not sure it gets more exciting :-) (This was some of my first day at CWCF 2019).

Looks like a grand time and you are bumping elbows with some upper echelon folks!

Thanks, tiktok, BL :-)

I admit that this stuff always feels a bit surreal to me. But, I work hard all year to have the opportunities, and that's all I'll take credit for. The rest is all on the kindness of people I meet, and I never could thank these folks enough.

Edit: I hate @#$%& autocorrect. My apologies, tiktok.
