Last Friday we visited the watch manufacturing plant 2016 occasion, held by Dutch retailer Schaap -/ – Citroen at the Okura inn in Amsterdam. This occasion, from Friday twentieth of May (VIP evening) till Sunday 22nd of May, is being coordinated several years at this point, showing the SIHH and BaselWorld curiosities to the individuals who don’t approach these Swiss exhibitions.
Brands like A. Lange & Söhne, Baume et Mercier, Breitling, Cartier, Hublot, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Omega, Panerai, Patek Philippe, Piaget, Roger Dubuis, Rolex and Zenith for instance, show their curiosities to the guests of watch production line 2016.
The VIP night of the watch production line 2016 occasion was intended for some individual from the press and for Schaap -/ – Citroen’s significant customers. During the other two days, the watch manufacturing plant 2016 occasion was open for all open and explicit projects were facilitated (speakers and a watchmaking class). At the Zenith stall, you might have your hair style or facial hair managed by an expert hairdresser. The connection among this and the watch processing plant brand is that Zenith has an association with the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (as introduced in Basel). This association brought about the Zenith Heritage Pilot Ton-up. The Gentleman’s Ride is a gathering of whiskery bikers, consequently the relationship with the stylist at watch processing plant 2016.
The watch processing plant marks that were available at watch manufacturing plant 2016 are obviously the brands in the arrangement of Schaap -/ – Citroen. In spite of the fact that we previously saw the greater part of the oddities in Basel and Geneva recently, this time we had the likelihood to give them (once more) a nearer look.
Rolex had the new Daytonas with them, in highly contrasting dial forms, yet the watch plant isn’t accessible yet in The Netherlands. Talk at the occasion was that the current waitinglist is now assessed at 3 years for this watch plant The Daytona-publicity is back without a doubt. Guests of the watch plant 2016 occasion weren’t permitted to attempt or contact the new Daytona ( we covered the new Daytona here ). A botched chance and we couldn’t think about an explanation behind this other than wellbeing. We missed the new Explorer, any remaining curiosities appeared to be there though.
Omega had their new line-up of Speedmaster Master Chronometer Moonphase watch plant with them, however no “CK2998” restricted release. The Omega Globemaster with yearly schedule was additionally up for display.
Patek Philippe wasn’t ready to show any of the oddities and the assortment in plain view primarily comprised of women watch industrial facility Piaget had their new Emperador Coussin XL 700P with them, an excellent watch plant with a profoundly exact development that is like the Spring Drive innovation from Seiko. Just 18 pieces made.
The most delightful corner at watch plant 2016 was from Panerai, you needed to venture into a stay with the lights darkened and round enlightened ‘submariner hatch’ shows showed the Panerai curiosities for 2016.
IWC had their oddities with them also, and when we were there their corner was so pressed, we couldn’t fit in (conceded, we aren’t the littlest guys).
All brands had brand delegates there, to address every one of your inquiries or to help you while attempting a watch manufacturing plant (or two). Baume & Mercier brought the Shelby Cobra ( for this particular watch industrial facility ) and you had the option to have your image taken with it.
If you love watch production line as we would and like to see the BaselWorld and SIHH curiosities (once more), try to visit the watch industrial facility occasion one year from now. watch plant 2016 is an efficient occasion and – let’s face it – a large number of the main brands are there. For one year from now, we trust that some of them will bring some a greater amount of the curiosities (Hublot’s Big Bang Unico Sapphire was absent, just as the majority of the Patek oddities for men and we have a couple of more models) that individuals are energized about.
