    You lucky bugger! My advice is just to remember to take your camera (batt fully charged) and a large bag to stuff all the freebies in. Looking forward to the report, have a blast!

    Freebies? Ooh, you get freebies? I was thinking of going this year but my passport is in never-never-land (with UK home office for visa =\) and I'm not sure if I'll get it back soon

    Wow what a great wife!

    Maybe you'll get to see this thing:


    The Titanium Concord C1 QuantumGravity timepiece, limited to a 10-piece run... pick me up one if you don't mind, I'll give you some BeeGees tickets in exchange. :thanks

    I live in Basel - send me a note and we can say hi. Bring some Kraft mac n' cheese and I'll even buy you a beer!

    IIRC JohnF will go, Ernie Romers for sure, Bhanu will, I will be there to meet Bill Yao, John Patterson, Jörg Schauer. Saturday evening there will be a meeting of some watchtime members.

    Advice ? Hmmm.

    Visit:
    Hall of Dreams
    Hall of Desires
    Hall of Fascinations
    Hall of Sensations
    Hall of Inspirations
    Hall of Emotions

    If there is time left visit Hall 6.0 (China)

    How long are you coming for? If you'll have time, go to the IWC website and see if you can get in on the factory tour - it's 1-1/2 hours from Basel by train.

    Don't be a party pooper Mike. I was there last year and there were plenty of people with camera's. If you take one (as I will) just be respectful of others and don't get carried away with your flash.

    I received my complimentary tickets in the mail today and will be there Saturday to see some old friends and a few new ones.
