So last weekend was an important time here in Tokyo. First of all, it was the best time to view cherry blossoms. And also, it happened to be the time the 2012 SIHH Panerai Preview began.



So I thought what better way to enjoy the two than with my risti friends . So I sent the word out and managed to wrangle up my good friend, G. We decided to head over to Ginza area to check out some of the cherry blossoms and new 2012 line up. What better way to kill two birds with one stone.

What a great way to walk into Ginza






Moved on to find more cherry blossoms
Nothing here


Nothing much to see here either


Hmmm ....... It's pink, but not exactly what I'm looking for ....


Lets see whats down this street ......




Keep going .......

Well, couldn't find any more cherry blossoms. Might as well go to the Boutique now




Oh! So that's where they were hiding them












G, seen here enjoying the atmosphere in the Boutique


The Boutique manager hard at work


And here's some of the new 2012 pieces








The Tuttonero






Superdome




Looks great ..... And feels even better on the wrist




We then made our way over to a local cafe




Even clowns need a pick me up


Thanks for looking and HAGW

blossoms! It must be incredible to see all those flowers. Is there a reason why last weekend is the best time to see the blossoms?
And off course great to see some that nice new collection again .

The May "official" meeting sounds great, though! Hope to see you and the others then!

PS Now that you have seen them face-to-face, do you have a favorite from SIHH 2012?

you're so much better than I am a man, it's scary. If I put that 449 on my wrist, I don't think I would have the willpower to take it off. My wife would then put me out, I would then have sleep naked in the streets, and no one wants to see me naked, especially with the lights on and in the streets, even my wife. Um, I hope the gutter would be soft.

Man oh man, the 449 is one incredible elegant powerful beautiful piece. And your pics are off the charts.

Last weekend was the peak of the blossoms in full bloom. Their lifespan is short lived and precious, part of the reason people treasure them.
