  1. The headline on this feature says: “A Look Back At Baselworld 2014: 19 [NINETEEN] Interesting New Watches We’ve Seen.” HOWEVER, I only see photos of nine watches with nine accompanying written descriptions in the article following the aforementioned headline. Have I missed something?

    The Omega and Hamilton are too 70s in their case design, in my opinion. The Hublot and Bulgari are just not tasteful. But to each his own!

    I love the new Omega grey dial watch. I notice the beautiful BVLGARI and several watches in the April edition of WatchTime have the date situated evidently for those wearing their watches on the left wrist. I and many others I see wear their watches on the right wrist, which means if buyers are fussy, they won’t buy watches intended for the left wrist if they are right-wrist wearers.

    Why not place dates in a neutral position?
