BASEL­WORLD 2017

KEEP­ING TIME WITH THE AN­NUAL CEL­E­BRA­TION OF TIME AND TIME­KEEP­ING

The Luxury Collection - - Baselworld 2017 -

Basel­world 2017 con­cluded on March 27th and the horol­ogy world once again heaved a col­lec­tive sigh of wist­ful­ness. One week, or six days to be pre­cise, is sim­ply too short a time to have one’s fill of the best watches in the world. Thou­sands of haute time­pieces were on dis­play as the finest names in watch­mak­ing show­cased their in­ven­tive and creative ge­nius. Rather than skim through them like a tourist on a bud­get hol­i­day, tick­ing off des­ti­na­tions faster than his coach can travel, we de­cided to be more se­lec­tive and savour the best and the bright­est among them. So that we can share with you our plea­sure, al­beit vi­car­i­ously, in fuller mea­sure. The cream of the horo­log­i­cal world was present. Tag Heuer, Rado, Fred­erique Con­stant, Seiko, Carl F Bucherer, Chopard, Omega, Bell & Rose, Rolex, Bre­itling, Breguet, Harry Win­ston, Blanc­pain and Patek Philippe, not to men­tion fash­ion icons like Chanel and Bul­gari. All pre­sent­ing their most ad­vanced, in­no­va­tive and aes­thet­i­cally spec­tac­u­lar creations. It was a repast to sat­isfy the most fas­tid­i­ous and de­mand­ing of con­nois­seurs and one is left wish­ing that time had slowed down just for that week to en­able a more whole­some ex­pe­ri­ence.
