The crazyness of Baselworld is over. To fully grasp the importance of this event, here is a few numbers. Baselworld is the largest watch & jewelry show in the world with 144,000 sq. feet of halls and booths. 1500 exhibitors of which 300 Swiss watch brands. 150,000 visitors over the 7 days, 4,400 journalists from all over the world. According to industry rumours, most watch brands secure 50 to 70% of their yearly sales during the event !
How did the AHCI fare this year ? Is this show really as essential for independent brands as it for the big names ?
Here is the feedback from some members participating on the booth at Baselworld this year.
This year, the Young Talent Competition selected 3 watchmakers who have distinguished themselves by their technical achievement, their search for complexity, and their sense of design and aesthetics.
The Circle of Friends brings the AHCI’s watchmakers closer to collectors and lovers.
