Just back from Baselworld in Switzerland and am resting my legs from the many miles of walking and digesting the hundreds of photos from thousands of exhibitors... My first experience at the Basel Fair might be summed up best by professional poker player Tom McEvoy, "Hours of boredom filled with minutes of sheer terror". Kidding aside, I had a blast seeing some of my favorite modern watches and spending time with some of my favorite watchmakers and fellow horolojournalists.

There were a few shockers from both Basel and Geneva at the SIHH. Will be posting them in the coming days...

And some random videos upon entering the ginormous watch fair...

RRuegger captured the feel of the Fair fairly well)

The Tissot Interactive Display

And a couple of my own clips;
