    A truly fantastic show unfolded at Watches & Wonders 2023, and I was so very
    fortunate, courtesy of Tonny and IWC, to witness some of the events firsthand.
    Here is my "fototour" of the amazing watches, sights, scenes and the great
    people that really make it all such a magical event...

    A wonderful time to be in Geneva!

    And catch up with old friends!

    Ben, magnificnet pictures of an event I am sorry I was unable to attend. Not
    only are the watches the center of attention at the show, but W&W is also a
    special opporutnity to make new friends and have quality time with fellow
    collectors we have met previously. It's the people that make this and other
    Collector events speical. Thanks Tonny, and IWC for making this possible and
    thanks Ben for giving me a vicarious tour of the week.

    Thank you, Bill, and yes, the amazing people really make it special. You
    certainly were missed, but your influence was still guiding my attempt to
    capure the moment!

    Still going, Mark;) Sharing the passion and getting some fantastic information
    from IWC legends Dr Seyffer and Walter Volpers, thank you guys for your time,
    it was greatly appreciated!!!

    And the new fellows, too, thank you for spending time with us and getting to
    know the collectors!

    Dr. Lorenz Brunner as well - just amazing to have the oppurtunity to meet and
    talk, really great to see you!

    A little pink passion in several generations. You never know what you might
    see at the IWC bar.

    Another unforgettable evening. Thank you Hannes, Michael, Boss Man, Et al.

    Next morning I was still waiting for my luggage to arrive, but it was still
    another day in paradise.

    And we are ready and eager to learn (and eat) more. Most of what was said in
    the room, stayed in the room;)

    Another great lunch with friends.
