Baselworld is right around the corner and like in years past, we will be attending to witness the latest and greatest in the industry. Whether you’re attending the show or keeping up via the live news and social feeds, here’s everything you need to know about this year’s Baselworld.
Each year at Baselworld, brands, retailers and watch enthusiasts gather together to showcase and experience the latest in watchmaking design and technology. This year’s show takes place March 22-27 in Messe Brasel, Switzerland. The show is open from 9am-6pm each day. Day tickets will cost CHF 60 and entire show tickets will cost CHF 150.

Trends to Watch Out For
It’s always exciting to see brands debut their latest models and technologies at Baselworld. While 2016 was all about the classics and 2017 was the year of vintage-inspired timepieces, what can we expect to see at this year’s show? Our very own Operations Manager and Baselworld veteran, Jamie Hayes, has the following predictions:
- Color will be big this year. Not necessarily bold and in-your-face, but existing products in new, innovative colors.
- The vintage look will still be very strong with brands digging into their archives and looking towards the past for a “brighter” future.
- Simplicity will make a big comeback this year. I think elegant design will win out vs. extreme engineering.
Will Jamie’s predictions ring true? We will be sure to report back during and after the show.
