On March 22nd I was fortunate enough to attend my second Apex evening. These are evenings are events hosted by Piers Berry, the founder of Pinion watches, for Pinion owners and watch enthusiasts for informal watch related discussions . They are held at the Century Club on Shaftsbury Avenue.
The exciting start to the evening was collector Stuart Kelly personally picking up his Revival 1969, reminding him of an important date. As you can see he is very happy with his latest acquisition.
The evening then moved on to a more general chat about Pinion and Piers showed us the current range including two great black DLC versions of the Revival 1969 and the Axis Pure (below).
As to future developments Piers clearly is a little guarded. Before writing anything here I have taken to the precaution of checking what has already been reported. The key point is that sensibly Piers wants to consolidate what he has, he is keen to emphasise the business is self-financed. Interestingly, he did repeat the possibility of a GMT model as he had mentioned in an interview in QP magazine last year so that would like it is happening even we do not have any indication of when.
One Pinion event that is worth looking out for latter in the year is the appearance of a Black Axis in the forthcoming film “Patient Zero”. Could be the “Bond Rolex Moment” for Pinion.
These are really thoroughly enjoyable evenings and so highly recommended.
