Baselworld 2011 is coming...

Post by andrema on Tue 21 Dec 2010, 4:26 pm

The annual watch extravaganza is coming in a few months (3/24 - 3/31)...who knows what kind of exciting designs will debut this year. I am sure that as we get closer to the date of the show, there will be all kinds of previews for us to drool over!

Here is a link to the official site ---->>> http://www.baselworld.com/en-US.aspx

The last few years its seemed as if most of the watches are pigs dressed up as princesses. I'm not excited about this one. Perhaps Seiko will bring out an inexpensive mechanical chrono line again! That would be worth being excited about IMHO.

You're missing the bigger picture, Robert... it's Switzerland. Rolling Eyes



Or maybe I am, and Seiko will save the world:

Switzerland is a nice place to visit. So is Japan. How great can Basel be - Invicta has a booth?

Hey, for good or bad, they are a maker; and there are other questionables, too, as far as we snobs are concerned. I went to the LA Auto Show, and Chrysler had a booth, so...

Snob, I'm no snob. I own a range of watches from my Dorsett to my Sinn. The brand I own the most of is Seiko. I just am not into "Art" masquerading as a watch.

"snob" was used sarcastically (but you knew that, lurkers may not have). Wink

And I agree, like last year Paris Hilton having a booth... c'mon.

I'd like a day or two to see the real marques, then a few days to run around the Alps. My AD and his brothers went a couple years ago and enjoyed it.
