Time To Move: A Tête-à-Tête Discussion Of Swatch Group’s Baselworld 2019 Replacement Event And The Standout Watches (Photofest!)

As the Swatch Group has now left Baselworld – and this appears to be a permanent thing – we discuss the very first Time to Move event consisting of the Swatch Group’s six premium brands Breguet, Blancpain, Jaquet Droz, Glashütte Original, Harry Winston, and Omega.

Our Predictions In The Petite Aiguille Category Of The 2018 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève And Our Panel Is Split Between Two Favorites

This is a very competitive price range, and at this level customers have serious expectations of both quality and delight. We pick our winners here; which one is your favorite?
