To say the least, it was VERY cool & VERY interesting but at first i want to thank all my italian friends that took so good care of me!!!

Passionated guy's like Roberto Jatucka & Corda, Alesandro Ciani & Gilberto, Mauricio & Corrado, Barraca, Andrea, Stefano, Gorgio,
Auro, Alfredo, Marco, Peppo, Lorenzo, Marlon, Edouardo, Fransesco etc to name just a few of them i met, THANK YOU very much for your hospitality !!!!

It started here, in Köln Airport, thinking about what i will see the weekend...







Parma...






To be honest, the contrast between the rest of the Fiera & the watchdealers is enorm, the whole fair is more orientated on brocantic...



Fianlly i 'found' the watchdealers....



































&

I met some interesting arms

Best 6541 I've ever seen, WELL done Edo!!






Finally i met Mr.Pisani, i real big pleasure my friend!!


I tried my best, not for sale ;-(










&

But it was great to share and see the pure passion for nice vintage watches in Italia
I had the pleasure of getting invited to a collectors dinner at openings day...

Mamma mia!!

At least he has 1 Rolex he told me
















&

Some collection of Rolex chrono's from Maurizio...










@ Jacuta...








Around the corner a nice Kampfschwimmer...




@ Alesandro & Gilberto







Lunch at the Fiera...



Chearleader Marco









Checking BC movement in the sun...




Some more exceptional...























And Daytona on the moon with Apollo 7!!


&

Yes, i brought back some new stunners, like the tropical brown 6538 & SYL 6350 honeycomb in excellent condition for instance...

The brown BC is from Alessandro, he's truly a gentleman!! & the fine Serpico i got from Roberto, my BIG friend!







Happy as a child i'm back home, thanks i could share the pure italian passion!!!

Best to all

Hi P,

What an event, what a people and what a watches......! And then there is the food.... Wow.

I had the pleasure to be there once (and for a too short moment only) to meet Roberto but I do plan to go back for the whole weekend later this year. Amazing ! Thanks for the sharing and big congrats with your new additions.

Best,
Mark
