Baselworld 2014; new Tudor models

For 2014 Tudor has four novelties; three new watches/lines and a book on the history of the brand.

Exiting Baselworld 2014 news, Grönefeld Parallax Tourbillion

You’ve probably seen teasers during the last few weeks, however believe me, you’ve seen nothing yet! Last week during an informal pre-Baselworld GTG in The Hague, Bart and Tim Grönefeld showed a few ‘first friends of the brand’ their new model, the Parallax Tourbillion. In my opinion ‘three time’s the charm’ is so true...

Once in a while, with a few friends we organize an informal Sunday watch-get-together. Yesterday we met at the terrace of Luden in The Hague with again some interesting watches attending the show. The nice thing about the gatherings is that most of the members of the GTG have a very divers taste and...
