The horological academy of independent creators AHCI cordially invites watch connoisseurs and aficionados of fine horology to visit us at “BASELWORLD 2019″ which takes place from March 21 to March 26, 2019.
Since 1987, AHCI has participated at Baselworld, the renowned and prestigious Swiss exhibition, as well as at many other watch fairs all around the world. This gives collectors, connoisseurs of authentic horology and the international press an opportunity to get in contact with the real watchmakers, who personally present their innovations and high-quality masterpieces.
2019 will mark the 32nd year at Baselworld for our Academy. This year we are in a new location, with a new booth (35% larger than 2018) with a record number of AHCI exhibitors.
The goal of the AHCI is to perpetuate the heritage of horological art and promote this exceptional (avocation = a hobby or minor occupation) vocation. In addition to provide opportunities for the young, talented watchmakers to present and exhibit their creations by participating at the different watch fairs with the experienced members of the AHCI.
We are happy to announce that 21 of our exceptional watch and clockmakers will expose their chefs-d’oeuvre on the AHCI booth along with 7 candidates and 4 new applicants for candidacy.
Now, our horological academy counts 35 members, 9 candidates and 8 honorary members from 15 different countries.
