KEEPING TIME WITH THE ANNUAL CELEBRATION OF TIME AND TIMEKEEPING
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.
