The road to Baselworld 2015 is officially opened.

Of course we received some Baselworld 2015 previews already, however as from today the road to this years fair has been officially opened to my standards. Today I received the #1 ‘New Models 2015’ press-newsletter from ‘Baselworld Swiss Exhibitors’, and I will look to find an easy way to bring you all these novelties....

Baselworld 2014 ends; a walk-through in 9* minutes

Baselworld 2014 is almost at an end. It’s not strange that visiting the largest and most influential watch fair in the world is strenuous. However to me it seems that this year I heard more complaints about it being extremely hectic than other years. Mind you, the fair grounds are HUGE. Just walking though...

Baselworld 2014; high-end watches and… G-Shock

Baselworld 2014; high-end watches and… G-Shock

Baselworld for many is a fair of high-end watches, either being big brand names like Patek Philippe or independent Manufacturers like MB&F. However I can’t help stopping by Casio each year in order to see the new G-Shocks as well. Being a G-Shock fan and collector myself, it’s a good opportunity to see new...

Baselworld 2014; new Tudor models

Baselworld 2014; new Tudor models

For 2014 Tudor has four novelties; three new watches/lines and a book on the history of the brand. Of course the blue bezelled version of the Black Bay is nice and certainly a different appearance compared to the burgundy. However the model which struck me most was the Tudor Ranger. Being a fan of...

Baselworld 2014; new Omega models

As said, Baselworld’s first run after the opening of the halls for the press are the Rolex and Omega booths. Omega this year had even more interesting news than Rolex and came with a whole bunch of new models. We were lucky to bump into Mr. Stephen Urquhart, president of Omega, and finding him...

Baselworld 2014; new Rolex models

Baselworld 2014; new Rolex models

This post about new Rolex models introduced at Baselworld 2014 is certainly not complete, and merely a quick first impression. What struck me most is the new Seadweller. One of my all time favorite Rolex models; the one where my old Rolex catalogues fall open when laying down. I think after the Deepsea disaster...

Baselworld 2013, day five

Baselworld 2013, day five

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.

Baselworld 2013, day four

Baselworld 2013, day four

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 two

Baselworld 2013, day two

My finishing of day one was rather hectic yesterday. The Bremont party was great with a touchy video and Nick and Giles introducing a few new models. They lifted a little bit of the curtain for a new to come limited edition, named Code Breaker, as well, which will be unveiled in June. All...

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)...
