Of course it's not really Baselworld Day 2, but it's our Day 2. Everything was going really well, but by the afternoon of Friday, Ernie began to feel unwell and made the tough but wise decision to pull out of Baselworld and travel home. Fortunately he is now on the mend, and he sent these new photographs from his sessions on the Friday right up to the point where he had to tear himself away. Even under the weather Ernie can still take a great photograph.

This well regarded French brand, located in the Franco-Swiss Jura region, was founded in 1973. The brand has a number of collections, two of which are Moorea, introduced in 1984, and the Collection Manufacture introduced in 2011. The inspiration behind the legendary MOOREA Collection was Emile Pequignet's passion for his race horse, Moorea, the king of the horse shows in the 1980s. In search of a strong and distinguished identity, Emile Pequignet invented the MOOREA link bracelet; a steel grain-shaped link hinged with the bracelet, perfectly identifiable in its design.

The Collection Manufacture is regarded as the real flagship of the Pequignet company, the Calibre Royal® is a mechanical movement produced in the manufacture and a symbol of the Renaissance of French Haute Horlogerie. The Calibre Royal was entirely designed, prototyped, tested and assembled in Pequignet's Haute Horlogerie laboratory in Morteau.

Among them are Brazilian David Luiz who plays for English club Chelsea and for the Brazilian national team. Each ambassador wears a 50mm Quantum watch with Swiss chronograph movements.

Among other watches, Ernie models here the Reflex. These self curl silicon bangles come in more colours than Ernie has designer jackets. Set the watch to 'ON' and the left hand column of figures lights up to show the hours while the right hand column shows the minutes.

Fear not, there will be more live pictures to come even though Ernie could not be present and the good news is, I didn't have to take them with my 6 mega pixel Nokia Lumia 520. Bhanu Chopra is here with a real camera.

Thank you, guys, and I hope you recover soon, Ernie.

The second Moser pic is of the Mayu model (thicker bezel, '12' at 12 position). These are the first pictures I've seen of the Venturer (their press kit images have been out for a week or so now). The Venturer looks rather elegant with that thin bezel and domed crystal, and especially so sans the '12' of the Mayu IMO.

I love these Pequignet models. Which models are these exactly? I don't see them on the Pequignet website.

Found them!



That's from their 2014 Collection Moora Press Kit found in their Downloads section: Downloads - Pequignet

Now, I wonder what movements they use?
