So things at the MONTA/Everest heated up here in Basel, and we had Ilya Ryvin of Worn&Wound declare that the MONTA Atlas in white dial as his favorite watch of the show. And this declaration was proclaimed on Hodinkee radio! Both Grey NATO podcast hosts (James Stacey and Jason Heaton) stopped by to see us. And we crushed tacos, beers and sausages during our downtime. It’s a Basel tradition to eating a veal sausage sandwich outside of the main hall.
Our picks from the show include the Patek Phillipe Aquanaut in green as well as the esteemed brand’s 5212A Calatrava Weekly Calendar. Oris had a solid lineup of new offerings, including two sizes of a Clean Oceans Limited Edition Aquis Date.
