....and follow-up trip to Munich!

I had the pleasure to be invited to SIHH:




....and I was also lucky enough to meet up with my good friend Christian (aka Holly):







Taking a break between presentations.....................



I hung around here a lot during the four days that I was at the show !






With Ricky, Boutique Manager at HK Prince's Building in Central:



With Christian:





I attended the Gala evening of another watch brand with an underwater theme!














With Mr. Ambassador Yu Jianhua from the Permanent Mission of the People's Republic of China to the World Trade Organization:



With Oifae Houssa, GVA IWC Boutique Manager, my host for the evening, "merci Oifae"!!



With Nico Rosberg, German racing driver for the Mercedes Formula One team:




I was back at the show the next day for my Panerai presentation.

Respecting this year's policy, I did not take any photos of the new releases but you all know them very well by now!

I must say that the "consolidation" of this year's models to the 8-day in-house movement is a great strategy for the future of Panerai. Some of the Special Editions are not too shabby either (can you say "1940 WG Minerva"????!!!!)!!!!!!!!!!!


I'd like to thank Giacomo Cinelli, Brand Manager for Italy, for a great presentation.....grazie mille!!!!

I had the pleasure to meet and chat with Mr. Carlo Ceppi, European Sales Director. Although it was brief, it was great to have a conversation with him, and his enthusiasm & passion for watches and Panerai is evident!


It was also nice to see Valentina Bonciani, Manager of the Panerai Four Seasons Boutique in Florence at SIHH.




Here are a few sights of Geneva:


















It was finally time to leave Geneva..............










....and arrive in Munich !

First order of business.....lunch at my favorite place................




With Christian:



Great beer.....



The best Nürnberger bratwurst:




Christian told me this was a "healthy meal", what do you think??????!!!!




As is customary with my annual visits to Munich, we spent some time after lunch in the Davidoff Room at the Kampinsky:










....where we were later joined by Marcel Rossner, General Manager for Panerai Northern Europe:




This little R&R break was followed by a Boutique visit:




Josefine, vielen dank for the invitation and the warm welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!





John & Rupert:



John, Rupert, Andreas, & Marcel:



Christian, Me, Ralf, Frank, & Josefine:



With John, Rupert, Andi, Marcel, Me, and a new Risti friend Martin:







Marcel is taking us through the 2014 releases:



He had all our attention:





Here's something I hadn't seen before..............



After the Boutique visit, it was time for dinner and a toast.............CHEERS!











Dessert is served with a ringing cow-bell and sparklers (you really have to be there to appreciate it!!!!!)





Love cotton candy!!





After almost a week of fun, it was time for some work.

On my way to the ISPO fair:










Munich sights:





























































My last night in Munich with some friends!

PAM 448:



PAM 448 & 249:





With Rainer, Andreas, and Me, cheers:



Love this money-clip:





The next morning it was time to head home, finally after 10 days.......phew!!!!!

At MUC:



The Senator Lounge:





At FRA for my connection:








Thanks for taking the time to read to the end of this post, I hope you enjoyed it.

....and follow-up trip to Munich!

I had the pleasure to be invited to SIHH:




....and I was also lucky enough to meet up with my good friend Christian (aka Holly):







Taking a break between presentations.....................



I hung around here a lot during the four days that I was at the show !






With Ricky, Boutique Manager at HK Prince's Building in Central:



With Christian:





I attended the Gala evening of another watch brand with an underwater theme!














With Mr. Ambassador Yu Jianhua from the Permanent Mission of the People's Republic of China to the World Trade Organization:



With Oifae Houssa, GVA IWC Boutique Manager, my host for the evening, "merci Oifae"!!



With Nico Rosberg, German racing driver for the Mercedes Formula One team:




I was back at the show the next day for my Panerai presentation.

Respecting this year's policy, I did not take any photos of the new releases but you all know them very well by now!

I must say that the "consolidation" of this year's models to the 8-day in-house movement is a great strategy for the future of Panerai. Some of the Special Editions are not too shabby either (can you say "1940 WG Minerva"????!!!!)!!!!!!!!!!!


I'd like to thank Giacomo Cinelli, Brand Manager for Italy, for a great presentation.....grazie mille!!!!

I had the pleasure to meet and chat with Mr. Carlo Ceppi, European Sales Director. Although it was brief, it was great to have a conversation with him, and his enthusiasm & passion for watches and Panerai is evident!


It was also nice to see Valentina Bonciani, Manager of the Panerai Four Seasons Boutique in Florence at SIHH.




Here are a few sights of Geneva:


















It was finally time to leave Geneva..............










....and arrive in Munich !

First order of business.....lunch at my favorite place................




With Christian:



Great beer.....



The best Nürnberger bratwurst:




Christian told me this was a "healthy meal", what do you think??????!!!!




As is customary with my annual visits to Munich, we spent some time after lunch in the Davidoff Room at the Kampinsky:










....where we were later joined by Marcel Rossner, General Manager for Panerai Northern Europe:




This little R&R break was followed by a Boutique visit:




Josefine, vielen dank for the invitation and the warm welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!





John & Rupert:



John, Rupert, Andreas, & Marcel:



Christian, Me, Ralf, Frank, & Josefine:



With John, Rupert, Andi, Marcel, Me, and a new Risti friend Martin:







Marcel is taking us through the 2014 releases:

I had the pleasure to meet and chat with Mr. Carlo Ceppi, European Sales Director. Although it was brief, it was great to have a conversation with him, and his enthusiasm & passion for watches and Panerai is evident!


It was also nice to see Valentina Bonciani, Manager of the Panerai Four Seasons Boutique in Florence at SIHH.




Here are a few sights of Geneva:


















It was finally time to leave Geneva..............










....and arrive in Munich !

First order of business.....lunch at my favorite place................




With Christian:



Great beer.....



The best Nürnberger bratwurst:




Christian told me this was a "healthy meal", what do you think??????!!!!




As is customary with my annual visits to Munich, we spent some time after lunch in the Davidoff Room at the Kampinsky:










....where we were later joined by Marcel Rossner, General Manager for Panerai Northern Europe:




This little R&R break was followed by a Boutique visit:




Josefine, vielen dank for the invitation and the warm welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dessert is served with a ringing cow-bell and sparklers (you really have to be there to appreciate it!!!!!)





Love cotton candy!!





After almost a week of fun, it was time for some work.

On my way to the ISPO fair:

...about the Munich GTG, but it seems that it was by invitation only! Vienna is not all that close but my boss is in Munich and he's always happy to see me... Great to see John took part - I love his work and I have two of his straps (now that I've finally acquired a 47mm PAM, there's going to be a few more orders headed to Munich ) It would have been nice to see Christian too... !

"Christian told me this was a "healthy meal", what do you think??????!!!!"

Nad, that leberkäse will not help your arteries one bit... but it certainly tastes good! Could have been worse, though (there's the käseleberkäse - which is essentially the same thing injected full of cheese... yummy!) I'm the healthy sort, I like pferd-leberkäse and take it with a pickle and freshly-ground hose radish, served up in a "semmel" Wirtshaus in der Au is a must - got to love how they serve large parties with those long "benches", ha!

Thanks again for the tour and GTG report - enjoyed it as always

....and follow-up trip to Munich!

I had the pleasure to be invited to SIHH:




....and I was also lucky enough to meet up with my good friend Christian (aka Holly):







Taking a break between presentations.....................



I hung around here a lot during the four days that I was at the show !






With Ricky, Boutique Manager at HK Prince's Building in Central:



With Christian:





I attended the Gala evening of another watch brand with an underwater theme!














With Mr. Ambassador Yu Jianhua from the Permanent Mission of the People's Republic of China to the World Trade Organization:



With Oifae Houssa, GVA IWC Boutique Manager, my host for the evening, "merci Oifae"!!



With Nico Rosberg, German racing driver for the Mercedes Formula One team:




I was back at the show the next day for my Panerai presentation.

Respecting this year's policy, I did not take any photos of the new releases but you all know them very well by now!
