While Baselworld technically doesn't open until tomorrow, today was the press preview day and thus our first day at the 2019 fair. After our first few appointments, we gathered some of the team in the living room of an Airbnb and downloaded on our first thoughts after seeing the new layout of the fair, a few early product leaks, and the new watches from Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Tudor. It might have only been a half-day at the show, but there was still a ton to talk about. Jack gets into how this year's fair is different from any he's been to before, Cara (predictably) points out the sleeper rainbow hit, Ben talks about what makes Patek grand complications special, and Stephen shares why he thinks weird watches are sometimes the best watches – and we even get a surprise visit from James and Cole to talk about their highlights from day one.*
Give the show a listen and let us know in the comments below what you want us to talk about tomorrow. Enjoy, and see you then!
