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.

I liked the concept of the Hamilton Code Breaker for example (see picture below). And another cool watch he posted about is the Hamilton Electric with an automatic mechanical movement. Finally, the Elvis watch becomes ‘interesting’ again. I never dug the quartz version and the originals are way too expensive 😉

    Dag Robert Jan, al foto’s van de SIHH? Ik ben benieuwd naar de IWC’s. PS die Smurf Rolex?, jij zal hem wel super vinden, maar ik pas 🙂

  • @Zeger: de nieuwe Rolexen doen me vooralsnog niet zoveel, helemaal niet in de Smurf-format…

  • The Hamilton CB is very cool!
