    Baselworld 2009 - New Ball predictions?

    So folks - what's in store for us Ballers from those who design these pieces that are accurate under adverse conditions?

    Last year, Ball gave us 3 new aviator watches, a new diver, a new moon phase, 3 different chronos, a new HC, a five time zone, a tribute to a pocket watch, and a tribute to a tornado chaser.... so what could be next? Thoughts?

    I know what I'd like to see.

    Regards,
    -Jeff

    PS - I know a similar thread or two were posted back at the end of 2008, but I'm starting to feel the Baselworld excitement, and since I was finally able to get back on to WUS today, thought I'd toss it out there again.
    Trivia question of the month:
    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?

    Actually the storm chaser and the secometer was not in Baselworld 2008 display if i am not wrong. But they seem to push it out in such a hurry. I got a feeling this year Baselworld would see even less model. Who knows they may showcase stormchaser and secometer at this year baselworld.hehe But i have a feeling the watches that will be going to be showcase in baselworld2009 would mostly be above the USD$3500 MSRP as the demand for watches above that price range is still strong.

    You are correct - I was referring to what was released last year as a whole - not just at Baselworld. One thing I really like about Ball is that it releases new pieces throughout the year.
