I want to let everyone know that a group of us will be in Geneva for the public days of Watches and Wonders. If you're interested in meeting up, either in the afternoon or evening at a hotel or restaurant, please comment below so we can coordinate a suitable location. I'll be arriving in Switzerland on the morning of the 12th and departing on the afternoon of the 16th.

Meet your host

Hi Paul,

I live under an hour from Geneva (in Annecy). I'd be interested in the meet up.

I visited the last one and found it a bit OTT. But Time to Watches was running simultaneously and was a much more casual and relaxed affair with smaller makers ready to chat.

Kind regards

Cormac

I鈥檒l come if I can borrow Diddy鈥檚 jet. I don鈥檛 think he鈥檚 using it right now. I just can鈥檛 fly over there commercial again. It鈥檚 impossible to sleep with some little twerp kicking the back of my seat for ten hours.

The flight from JFK is eight hours, and nine hours for the return. Given my medical conditions, economy class isn't feasible for me. Fortunately, Condor offers a business class option with lie-flat seats for $2,700 round trip鈥攁 significantly better deal compared to Delta's prices. I want to clarify that I'm aware $2,700 is costly, but due to my infrequent travel and chronic pain, I prioritize the comfort of a lie-flat seat whenever possible.

But JFK is a several hour flight from here! 馃槱

Hey, I get that! I鈥檇 do the same. I鈥檓 not as young as I use to be, so comfort is important.

In all honestly, I鈥檇 love to go to W&W. Probably won鈥檛 happen anytime soon, though. I鈥檝e got too much going on. Life鈥檚 busy with three kids still at home! Maybe in a few years. Rain check? 馃槅

I understand completely! Living about 2 hours away by plane from NYC, catching a direct flight from JFK to Geneva isn't as straightforward for me as it is for someone local. While I don't have kids at home, I do have three dogs whom I'll miss terribly. Fortunately, I don't need to board them since I have family members willing to look after them while I'm away. Maybe when your kids are a bit older, a weekend trip to Switzerland could be on the cards for you. I'm thrilled about the chance to lay eyes on these novelties before anyone else outside of the industry.

I appreciate the kind words. I didn鈥檛 think The Montage meetup was going to get topped so quickly, but it looks like it鈥檒l happen in Geneve in a couple weeks!
