It was another amazing day, filled with watches. We visited Halls 1, 3 and 4 today. The day started at Ebel revising the watches dedicated to soccer:
Ebel Limited Edition AFC AJAX (150 pcs)
Ebel Real Madrid Tekton (Bezel is made of sapphire glass, instead or rubber).
Going from soccer into another sport, Graham dedicated its passion for racing:
Graham GMT Flyback Chrono Racing
What do you think of the infamous ChronoFighter models by Graham?
Not only Graham loves racing, the brand that has the most racing DNA of all, is Heuer! I already wrote that I feel it is a year of ‘going back to the basics’. They also went back to their roots and honoured the 40th anniversary of the Heuer Monoca:
A replica of the first Monaco, they kept it as close as possible to the original ‘Heuer Monaco 1969’. What I really liked is that they used the old Heuer logo and not the most recent TAG Heuer logo on the dial, case back and folding clasp.

Yesterday we did not have time to finish our meeting at Hamilton and went back today. This color really cought my eye:
New Hamilton ETO in unique colour: GunGrey!
New Hamilton strap: Leather or rubber? Yes… It is a rubber strap with a alligator print! Cool, no?!
Modern (?!) interpetation of classic Pilots watches…
Talking about re-editions and vintage models, one of the most legendary diving watches in the Omega collection is the Seamaster PloProf:

With a matching folding clasp!
Going from legendary diving watch, to a very interesting diving watch made by Oris. The talking piece of Oris in 51mm (who says big is over?!):
New Oris Diver Chrono 1000m with VERY special bezel…
Oris Diver 2009: You have to lift the outer bezel vertically and only then can you spin the CERAMIC diving bezel. The chrono is 100 bar waterproof.
Tomorrow is my last day in Basel… Already bugged out that I will not have time to see everything that I planned on seeing… One week of Watch Magic is simply NOT enough :s
