Even more Basel 2008 Impressions

Alon over at the Ace Jewelers Blog posts great pictorials on the Basel 2008 expo. Besides the brands he carries for his Ace shop, he also posts pictures of various other brands.

Finally, the Elvis watch becomes ‘interesting’ again. I never dug the quartz version and the originals are way too expensive 😉
