Quest for a Coke at the Miami Beach Antique Show
Watch meetups and the purely social side of watch collecting are one of the things that makes this hobby so special. Commiserating with friends and acquaintances about grails won and lost, posing for group wrist shots, and learning new things about a topic that we all come to realize has an almost endless depth are all things that to varying degrees are essential to enjoying our hobby and, unfortunately, difficult to replicate with much of the planet locked down to prevent the spread of Covid-19. So, reading this story from contributor Ed Estl0w about his experience at the Miami Beach Antique Show has a newfound poignance today. Sure, it’s a fun record of Ed’s experience at a gathering that is pure heaven for many watch lovers, but it’s also a gentle reminder of what we’re currently working to restore, once life can return to some semblance of normal.
