    Baselworld 2018 was better!!

    Well the dust is settling. All in all a pretty disappointing year especially from the big players, Rolex and Tudor. Seiko and Grand Seiko did ok. The true winners were Swatch group for not turning up and brands like Zodiac and Monta. It's pretty clear last years show gave more to fans.

    Examples

    ROLEX: BLRO Vs BLNR (more due to discontinution of LN and oysters on GMTs)

    TUDOR: BB58 & GMT Vs PO1

    SEIKO: SLA025 VS 033

    GS about even


    I suppose the biggest disappointment about Baselworld 19 was what didn't appear, no Tudor Sub, no new exp ii, no new Milguass.

    What do u guys think?

    (Borrowed images obviously)

    I found the bicolor Rolex and Tudors to be interesting. The Deepsea is really growing on me! I guess it's official... not so much a tool watch anymore!

    I, however, could not resist this little beauty...!!

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    Yes this is my favourite release...it's a cracker. Did you pre-order? I would have if I had the cash lying about. Monta Atlas was also lovely also.

    It was definitely hit or miss. Mostly miss. I found the smaller brands putting out better stuff this year than the big players.

    After the success of the BB58 last year, I was hoping to see some more smaller (36-40mm) pieces this year.

    Strange that they didn't release anything under 41mm other than the 36mm two tone

    Not just Tudor. Hardly anyone released any smaller pieces.

    GS's showing actually had watches I wanted and could buy last year. This year they had one watches that wasn't Patek money. Well maybe a couple monster steel ones at AP money...either way.

    Oh well, not a terrible thing I didn't see a single watch I'd even think about buying.
