Baselworld is the highlight of the watch-loving community's annual calendar. Featuring over 1800 exhibitors from over 400 countries, it is easy to understand why: it is over 160,000 square feet of the best in designer watches and luxury watches... All under one roof. This year, over 100,000 visitors are expected at the luxury watch extravaganza. This will undoubtedly include countless experts, journalists and aficionados who flock to Basel every year to see the watch industry's latest in designer watch models, innovations and luxury watch collections. Many luxury watch manufacturers use Baselworld as an opportunity to present world exclusives of their latest products and watch mechanisms.
Without question, the star of this year's Baselworld will be a $5million luxury watch handcrafted by prestigious designer watch manufacturer, Hublot. Set with more than 1200 individual diamonds, the encrusted luxury brand watch is valued at $5million. Just last year, the very same prestigious luxury watch manufacturer sold a $3million watch and it is likely they will accomplish the same feat this year.
Here at The Watchery, we are abuzz with excitement for the opening of Baselworld on March 8th. And we look forward to reporting back to you on some of the most remarkable luxury watch and designer watch unveilings, innovations and more.
