Our 5 Favorite Swiss Watches from Baselworld 2011

This is the first in a series of posts over the next month that will cover some of the highlights of the world's biggest and most important watch fair held each March in Basel, Switzerland. To kick off the series, we look at a few of our favorite new model introductions from Baselworld.

1. TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000 is the first mechanical chronograph to display 1/1000th of a second.

    Errrr, two of those watches weren’t from Baselworld, they’re from SIHH.

  3. Thanks Slim – you are right. We made the corrections.

  4. Breguet also presented lots of good watches
    and guys from Holland Grönefeld were good surprise.

  5. Hi there, my comment about the TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000 .
    What a horrible design mistake with the “dented” 1000 top watch face part, and the the “bulged” bottom line at 6. The 1000 mark could have fallowed the curve so as the bottom. Other lines are and design aspects are ok.
    Pity.
