    I recognise a few faces there!

    TAG Heuer do a great job of putting these on and they really are special occasions where you get to meet the collectors who you've been talking to online. I couldn't make this year's one unfortunately, but looking forward to hearing the stories.

    I've thought for a while that we should organise a pre-Basel event for TAG Heuer collectors, with a chance to see the Basel watches in person..will give this some more thought about how to make it happen

    The proportions don't look like a JH80; thoughts?

    Edit: it is the JH80

    My old problem: The collectors summit takes place in Switzerland. Must have been an impressive event.
    But, in the home of watchmaking, I couldn't discover any cheese. Probably it will arrive with the launch of the Autavia...
