Baselworld 2019 is over, everyone! So naturally it’s time for Mike and I to sit down and talk about the pieces we loved, hated, and were just generally confused as hell over. We also did our best to cover pieces and news that no one else was mentioning in our on-going Baselworld 2019 coverage piece – so check out that link below.
As we make our way through Baselworld 2019’s press day, it’s already evident that, from a distance, this show feels quite different from what we’ve encountered in the past. Almost immediately, the Swatch Group’s absence has been realized and from the TBWS side of things, this almost significantly cuts down on the number of watches we’d usually talk about. But, we thought it would be fun to gather our thoughts so far and update this post throughout the week as we get our hands on the growing pile of press materials. So here are some watches that have stopped up in our tracks—for better or worse.
This week the guys are revisiting the talk on Women’s watches and how things have changed (or not changed) since the last episode. We talk Tudor ads, microbrands, and the general overall state of how (and why) certain watches are marketed to women. Plus, the guys share which overtly marketed “Women’s watches” they’d totally rock on wrist.
