A large group of watch enthusiasts on Facebook called Diver’s Watches has held its second annual UK get-together.
The group saw over 100 people attending the bash at the Sofitel London Heathrow Hotel last month.
Of this number, many flew in from abroad, which is in keeping with previous gatherings that the group’s hosted in New York, Singapore, Paris, Athens, New Delhi, Munich and Zurich.
Such is its popularity that the group now has more than 45,000 members, a number that it claims makes it the largest watch fan group on Facebook.
Brands including Christopher Ward and Bremont showcased their products at the event.
Andreas S. Gregoriades, founder of Diver’s Watches, said: “It’s so exciting to attend our get-togethers, meet our members and brand sponsors personally and share the passion that we all have for watches”.
The group’s senior administrator Colin Weaver added: “I was overwhelmed with the success of the event. It was a great night, meeting our group members, sponsors and invited guests alike. I am looking forward to our 2019 event, which promises to be even bigger”.
