Celebrating 150 years, IWC revives a pocket watch classic in the form of an incredibly enticing wristwatch. Featuring a jumping hour and minute display, time is ‘digitally' displayed across the dial of the Tribute to Pallweber Edition “150 Years”, with the small seconds hand sweeping below the hour display. Two additional references were unveiled at the show, a platinum piece with a lacquer dial and a stainless steel version featuring a blue dial. Luxury powerhouse Hermès opts out of this year's Baselworld and instead takes its collection to Palexpo. What remains though, is the brand's creative take on watchmaking, which in previous years ranged from watch with hands that can be switched on and off by command, to decorative dials inspired by traditional glassmaking. The house unveils a square timepiece with a round face, a design that brings forth a strong visual impact. In stainless steel, the Carré H's case measures 38 mm with tapered lugs securing a calfskin strap. Paired with a brown or a black strap, the piece comes in two references, one with a red second hand while the other one ticks with a yellow hand.
