We recently enjoyed a long weekend in Vegas with approximately 50 collectors of Rolex and Tudor. Highlights included the first showing of Tudor’s Baselworld 2017 novelties, a great dinner, and giveaways of Tudor and Rolex watches!
You may be familiar with the term WIS, if not, it stands for “Watch Idiot Savant.” Collectors have been self-applying this term for years. The concept of WISCON originated from TRF (The Rolex Forum). The forum’s members have been meeting offline via GTGs (get-togethers) for years. However, these GTGs were always regional, and usually occurred sporadically throughout the year. That all changed last year, when forum member Gerardo proposed a global meeting of TRF members. The location? Las Vegas. Last year, Gerardo organized the gathering of 25 TRF members, and the event went so well that nearly all attendees vowed to return in 2017.
