Baselworld day five was my sixth and last day at the fair (day zero was press day). It has been another year of good fun, networking and interesting watches. It has been enough as well though.

Sunday it is, and it’s to mention that the fair gets less crowdy. At least the press center is – most watch news will have probably been published by now. First to end my write up of day three; yesterday just after I published my write up I visited Glycine. They celebrate the 60th...

Baselworld 2013, day one

Today was the official opening of the fair to the public. Which I passed; one opening a fair seems enough for me. Besides that I have to start here with finishing yesterday, after I posted the ‘day zero’ article I was at the (first ever) Tudor bloggers press conference. Besides the new (mainly chronograph)...

THE Sinn toolwatch, the U1 – ref. 1010.010

THE Sinn toolwatch, the U1 – ref. 1010.010

Even the reference number of this Sinn U1 breaths something of simplicity. Some things are at it’s best if nothing can’t be taken away any more, this watch is one of them. The Sinn U1 diving watch is a real tool watch. It’s heavy, it’s thick (with the right ratio to it’s diameter) and...

This little watch brand has managed to create a watch with a personal DNA, even though it has a lot of options the buyer can personalize his/her watch with. Except for some six pre-defined models (plus one bronze limited edition model) the...
