Nice recap of what it is like to visit Baselworld and the business of luxury watches and accessories.

Love the explanation of Jack Forester, US editor of Revolution Magazine, on the appeal of mechanical watches

“Guys like machines,” he said, then elaborated: “We like machines because we can relate to them kinesthetically. There’s something about force being transmitted through gears that we can relate to on a physical level. With watches, we feel that there is something in some inexplicable way alive about them, in a way that electronics are not.”
