It's like going in for a sip of espresso and realizing that really what you have is pure, molten gold. The gold is delicious, it is artisan brewed and even the cup is hand crafted.

That is Baselworld. A world of watches, a mechanized cocktail of luxury.

Here I will share my Baselworld journey through a series of wristshots. My time in Basel was for painting the #LonginesWatercolour project in partnership with Time+Tide Watches. You can view the paintings on the Sunflowerman page. For the week Longines kindly loaned me the 2014 Heritage piece, Majetek watch.

I was given a press badge for the week. It felt like being given a bit of an exclusive look. Maybe it was just because of the press lounge and all of the free coffee.

I don't want to be rude, but the coffee in Switzerland was utterly average. It wasn't awful, but it was also not amazing. That said, I drank my weight in Cappuccino in the press lounge.

I shared an apartment space with the guys from Time+Tide Watches. Being around Australians for 8 days was a new and interesting experience. I swear, there were times when I had no idea what was being discussed. Ask an Australian to pronounce 'Omega'.

Just outside the apartment was this beautiful church building. I wish I captured more of the architecture. It really was grand in the midst of all of the residential and commercial landscape surrounding it.

One of the days I was able to sneak the Pulsometer on my wrist for a couple of snap shots. I love the shape and simplicity. see the painting here
