Baselworld 2018: the good, the great and the absolute best
Every year, the Swiss watch and jewellery industry descends on Basel, showcasing the best, most innovative novelties from hundreds of respectable brands.
We’ve been visiting the annual Baselworld exhibition for many years now, and the 2018 edition was as magnificent as always, exceeding all the possible expectations.
Baselworld is not the only exhibition of this sort, of course. However, we can assure you that there is nothing like it if you’re looking for some serious inspiration, striving to establish long-lasting contacts and learn about the latest technologies.
Talking about the current trends, retro designs are for sure leading the way. The revamps of the most iconic pieces from the 30’s and the 40’s, retro divers and pivots, stunning chronographs… with the price tags approaching over 100$, these pieces are for sure will become the most desirable luxury items.
Some other trends that we were lucky to witness were ceramic finishes, massive crowns, skeleton dials and eye-catching rainbow jewels. They were represented by many fabulous brands, including Rolex, Breguet, Chopard, Omega and Hublot.
Overall, talking about individual pieces, we didn’t notice anything groundbreaking but the combinations created by some brands were truly surprising for us and gave us a plenty of ideas.
Our absolute favourites?
For sure it’s the stunning limited edition of watches from Jacob & Co looking more like Faberge Eggs. It’s a very noticeable retro motif, but sometimes classics work much better than futuristic designs, especially when it comes to luxurious timepieces.
To sum up, we definitely achieved and even surpassed our goals at Baselworld 2018. It helped us to learn about the newest technologies in the industry, find fresh ideas and new suppliers… And we couldn’t wish for more!
See you at Baselworld 2019!
