If there is to be a replacement it won't be announced until Basel in late March / early April.

Yep, I intend to, if I can sort out logistics (probably won't stay the night there as hotels will all be already booked or too expensive) - anyone else?

They don't sell watches retail. The only pieces that are available are the extreme one offs - like the Bentley pocket watch that they produce every year as a single piece production run. They haven't yet failed to sell it during the show and although the price is never announced the general consensus is that none of them have sold for under $1,000,000.

Also remember that the new pieces don't really exist by Basel - the production versions are still several months away.
