The past weekend saw the second Issued In London collector’s lunch, hosted by Mike Wood and Andrew “Jed” McCormack. Collectors from as far as Indonesia and the United States congregated in UK’s capital to meet for an afternoon of what can only be described as – madness. The discretion and secrecy generally associated with vintage watch collecting at this level precludes me from divulging too much; so you must excuse the sparse details.
Primarily themed around watches issued to professionals (divers, pilots, military personal, etc.), steel was naturally the order of the day. Mil-Subs and COMEXes where out in remarkable force, as well as a plethora of other exceptional pieces.
