Feb 1, 2011 and I'm back on the road (again!!!!)

At YUL......................












Waiting in the Lounge:





I was starting to get worried about the weather:





A close-up of the snow on our plane.............I guess we're going to stop by the "de-icing" station!

















Finally pushing back from the gate!





Landed in Frankfurt and have to change terminals:





Anyone here familiar with the Blue Tunnel???!! LOL





Flight delayed so time for an early morning snack:





Saw this in a local newspaper, only in China!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





My first stop on arriving in Geneva (after my hotel check-in) was the Panerai Boutique.

Once there, a local Panerai collector, Guillaume, recognized me and we took a few photos:





He was picking up his 419 GVA Boutique Edition. here it is next my 360:








Me and Guillaume





It's always great to try on the PAM 307 Luminor 1950 Pangaea Submersible Depth Gauge, love this watch!!!!





















You may remember a group photo from my December visit with the Panerai team, but Bénédicte was not at the store at that time.

Happily, she was there during this visit and I had the chance for a photo:





Guillaume took the photo but I asked for another just a little closer, LOL!!











Les Ambassadors is still in a temporary location, but I visited anyway and was warmly greeting by Kevin!

He proceeded to show me some watches

Vulcain GMT:











Bovet:












Jump Hour!!




















Blancpain with Blue dial and sapphire bezel:











A very special UN Diavolo Freak!!!!!!!!!!!!























An ultra-rare UN Moonstruck!!!!!!!
































I love IWC but closer attention as to be paid to QC











I was invited to a local hockey game between the host team, Genève-Servette Hockey Club, and the visiting team, HC Fribourg-Gotteron!

Nothing like the NHL, but a fun evening!














The team mascot............a beautiful eagle!












Thanks for looking and stay tuned for more watches!!

Have a great day!








Montreal, Canada
