    With the world locked down due to Covid-19, Time 4A Pint get togethers are on hold, and lots of us are going a little bit stir crazy.

    To ease the boredom, and make sure us horological nerds stay in touch through isolation and social distancing, we’ve decided to take Time 4A Pint back out of the pub (for now), and onto the internet for a weekly live webinar on Sunday afternoons.

    On Sunday 24th May, join hosts me (the nerd behind Time 4A Pint) and Mat (the #Watchnerd), and special guests @Robert-Jan (Fratello Watches) and @Bill Sohne for 60 minutes of horological show and tell, from the comfort of your own home.


    Things to know:

    • We'll be going live from London on Saturday 24th May at 18:00BST (10:00PDT/13:00EDT/19:00CEST)

    • Tickets are free.

    • A link to the virtual GTG will be sent out 2 hours before the event.

    • You will need to download the Zoom app on your compatible device.

    • You won't be on audio or video, but will be able to ask live questions through the chat function.

    • Capacity is capped at 95 for the live event.

    • Login details for the webinar will be sent out to all ticket holders 2 hours before the we start.

    • A recording of the Virtual GTG will be available on YouTube from Monday 25th May.

    • By registering for a Time 4A Pint event, you are agreeing to join the Time 4A Pint mailing list, consent to receiving operational and marketing email communications from Time 4A Pint, and confirm acceptance of our GDPR policy. We will never sell or give away your data.

    One of us had to get the edit done post vGTG... so those pints might have to wait until that's done... otherwise things could go distinctly sideways. :D

    Side note:

    We had the setup call a couple hours ago, and althought I've met R-J and hung out loads, I've never met Bill. In fact, we've only ever communicated through messages and posts on this forum.

    Was so nice to put a face and a voice to a guy who I really enjoy chatting to here.

    I'm really looking forward to talking Sunday, and can't wait to meet you in person for a pint @Bill Sohne.

    I fricking love this community of nerds. You lot are awesome.

    I'm sure that with Bill and Robert -Jan on board there will be far more interest this time round Chris. .
    Bill is a watch forum legend.
    Keep up the good work.

    Agree, thanks all--I appreciate the opportunity to partake...though makes me lament the dearth of resources being in the rural midwest US.

    Chris and M did a great job... I kind of went over my allotted time.... hence Chris & M " speedy " presentations... I already apologized to them about that ...

    Best regards

    Bill

    No need to apologise! People can hear us talk anytime! :D

    Plus there's already a whole hour of Mat and I talking about learning to dive, my CWC (the watch from today) and some of Mat's divers here (https://www.time4apint.com/podcast/the-time-4a-pint-podcast-episode-53) if anyone wants to... dive in. ;)

    Thanks for joining us @Bill Sohne - looking forward to chatting more (without an audience) in the coming weeks!

    For those who missed out, and want to catch up - the recording is uploading to YouTube now.

    Just off to cook dinner - will share it after we've eaten and I've done the dishes!
