Joe / Neckyzips

Post by Tanukjaju »

It is with a heavy heart that I am sharing some very sad news with our community.

I found out yesterday that Joe, an old member in our forum and a good friend, had recently passed away.

I would ask if we could all kindly take a moment to remember him; be it a toast, a moment of silence or a short prayer.

For members that have outstanding items with him, know that I will be working with his family to help handle those watch related matters accordingly. Please reach out to me by PM on your projects and be patient as I work through them.

Please feel free to also forward this link to other watch forums he might have been active in.

Thank you,
Luke

I don't post here much, but I've been lurking and reading here a few times per week for many, many years including on the old forum as well before the move. I've seen many examples of his work here and occasionally over at the other boards and definitely know his was one of the first names I learned when it came to modifying watches. May he rest in peace and for those here that knew him well, my condolences to you.

RIP Joe. He was generous with his knowledge with me and I'm glad I still have a couple cherished parts he made in my favorite build.

It is very sad when I read these news. Joe was one of the first persons I contacted when I joint HF. When I was making my buckles, we had spent few times together video chatting....

I had made for him buckles with his logo...

RIP Brother.....

Luke.. thank you for sharing this sad news.
I am very sad for Joe (legendary Neckyzips) who left us. In the old forum it was a reference for us enthusiasts.
And so also in the current one.
I believe... to express a prayer for him with the silence he deserves, I believe that God will welcome him into heaven.
Have a good trip Joe and condolences to his family.

:( Sad news.

When I think of Joe I always think of the depth gauge cases he made. (I never did get one, but now I wish I had.)
The day he posted the CAD images of it I thought...Wow. Talent!

Short time on this planet for all of us. Shorter for some. Deepest sympathies to the friends and family for your loss.

All the best to my brothers here, P.
