Your most unfortunate late arrival…
None this year, as was the case for previous years. I deserve a medal.

Your most remarkable meeting
The best or the funniest? I have had at least four really funny encounters.

Your best encounter
I came across an ex-colleague from Paris with whom I had worked eleven years ago.

Your best surprise
There are people I look forward to meeting at BaselWorld. I like seeing the watches too but meeting people is first on the list.

Something that struck you about the organization
I would have liked to have had a slightly larger bed since I put on 4 kg last winter.

Your shortest night
None. I behaved myself this year.

Your longest day
All of them were a marathon as usual.

Your favourite watch
Do I really have to choose only one? There are at least ten that caught my eye…

The contact you most look forward to following up on and to getting to know better
Leonardo DiCaprio, but I lost his business card…

The sentence or words that got to you?
I am hesitating between “Did you see beautiful things in Basel?” and “Till when are you in Basel?”
