BaselWorld Countdown - You Get to Pick 1 of Each...

This year I thought that I'd try something a wee bit different.  So the idea is this:

You get to pick ONE of the current collection of every watch brand you will meet with at BaselWorld, which one would you pick?

Not in alphabetical order - From Hublot I would pick the Hublot Unico Titanium Big Bang.

So reasons...

I think in many ways this particular Big Bang embodies:
1.  The original idea/vision of my favorite philanthropist Carlo Crocco.   The case with the porthole bezel and the rubber fusion of a beautiful watch with a rubber strap.
2.  The FUSION principle of Jean-Claude Biver and that AMAZING Unico movement.

Now I am a humble university employee, but maybe some day I will have the savings for something this cool ; )
