Basel 2009: Team Ace Trade Show Review (Day 3)

Today was another day packed with watches and a few diamonds 🙂 Tomorrow is our last day and  will be dedicated to jewelry!

We visited Halls 1, 3 and 4 today. The day started at Ebel, revising the watch dedicated to our favourite soccer team: AFC AJAX!

Ebel Limited Edition AFC AJAX (150 pcs)

New Ebel Hexagon Automatic Chronographs (51mm)

After Ebel, we visited Hall 3 to see our international diamond partners, followed by an introduction to Graham (by The British Masters)… Please share your opinion about this brand and watches… Should Ace Jewelers stock them?

We went hurriedly  back to Hall 1 to see the newest creations of TAG Heuer. They have also gone  back to their roots and have honoured the 40th anniversary of the Heuer Monaco:

A replica of the first Monaco, they have kept it as close as possible to the original ‘Heuer Monaco 1969’. Ace Jewelers will receive a few of this limited edition version ( Note : – ”Heuer” logo and not ”TAG Heuer”).

The back of the Heuer Monaco 1969 re-edition (original calibre 11).

Yesterday we did not have time to finish our meeting at Hamilton and went back today to finish our order:

New Hamilton X-copter Automatic Chronograph

New Hamilton ETO in unique colour: GunGrey!

New Hamilton strap: Leather or rubber? Yes… It is a rubber strap with a alligator print! Cool, no?!

Modern interpetation of classic Pilots watches!

After Hamilton we visited a brand that solely produces watches with mechanical movements: Oris. The talking piece of Oris – 51mm (who says big is over?!):

New Oris Diver Chrono 1000m with VERY special bezel…

Oris Diver 2009: We can not even explain it, you have to come see and try it for yourself. Cool patent. If you dive with mechanical watches, you have to come and try this new titanium watch!

This is a great year for fans of diving and watches… Especially if you love Omega! Besides renewing the complete Constellation collection, Omega re-introduced the PloProf! Yes, the model with the orange pusher to turn the bezel:

With a matching folding clasp!

There was a great deal  more Omega news, but since we ran out of time (as usual), we did not have enough time  for pictures. Stay tuned for a post about the 40th anniversary of the Speedmaster Moonwatch. Yes, we have a double 40th anniversary year…

Stay tuned for jewelry news tomorrow from BaselWorld 2009 by Team Ace.
