BASELWORLD 2013 BEGINS IN EARNEST

By Leo Parker.

The luxury watch industry is home to many events each year but very few, potentially none, have the same gravitas as the prestigious BaselWorld event held in the spiritual home of watchmaking, Switzerland. The event serves as an opportunity for the world’s premier watch brands to showcase what they’ve got in store for us all over the next 12 months or so and, safe to say, the likes of Breitling, Hublot, IWC and Rolex have got some mightily impressive timepieces up their sleeves for the remainder of 2013. The event doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, April 25th, but thanks to the The Watch Gallery, the UK’s top watch retailer, we gained access to the official press day today before the public were allowed in. Here are a few of the highlights:

 

The breathtaking Hublot Big Bang Unico watch is just a taste of things to come from BaselWorld. Follow Style Ledger for the next few days for more news and events from BaselWorld, including watches from the likes of Rolex, IWC and Breitling. You can also follow the action on The Watch Gallery Magazine.
