Baselworld 2011 opened today and early indications are that cautious optimism are the watchwords for the coming year (pun intended). It also looks like it will be a good year for watch enthusiasts (more along those lines in coming reports).

If you squint at the image below, you might spot a famous watchmaker. Obscure hint: he likes to wear fishing vests.
