Well I'm finally here - at Baselworld and the weather is warm, sunny.. What a great day to see some watches! Here's the first photo report, some snaps from the stand, which you can imagine is pretty busy. Lots of meetings with different people going on - Plus bad news from last night - During the cocktail party / launch of the victory watch a number of Bremont watches were stolen. Whilst these were not any of the new collection it did include some older pieces and a couple of personal watches owned by the guys. Bremont are doing everything possible to phone / email and tweet to see if the culprits can be caught (So if you see any come up for sale minus boxes do let Bremont know so they can check it out).
Okay on with the snaps...
The main entrance to Basel looks very strange this year - there is work underway to create a bigger hall so the old external building is now inside another bigger building!
Lovely architecture of steel towards the top
However this was the location I wanted to be in!
In the lobby a familiar sign!
Now I know I've reached the right place...
On entering the room a huge video wall is present
The room is much bigger than last year with loads of meetings taking place
The display by the door has watches, but this was the area that was stolen from last night
A nice bowl of USB sticks... I'll have one of those later
Giles and Steven in separate meetings..
The Lovely white SOLO (More on this later) The other watches were being used in sales presentations.
... And the screen plays on
HMS Victory is present (As of yet I still haven't seen the watch - will check it out in a min)
More to come later today - with a focus on watches and STRAPS!
