The premier event in the exclusive world of luxury timepieces and jewellery kicks off on March 16 and promises to deliver the final word in elegance, style and craftsmanship to an adoring public. Baselworld , in the Swiss city of Basel, has become an institution where watchmakers, jewelers, brands and collectors come together to celebrate and pay homage to the timeless beauty of luxury goods.
The event kicks off at 6pm on Thursday, March 17 and runs for a week until March 24 and is the one place where you can find the world’s greatest brands all under one roof.

From designers to purchases, consumers, celebrities and the global media converge on the Swiss city of Basel to be inspired and to share this amazing experience.

Baselworld has firmly established its role as the most important platform that showcases those innovations, creations and brand new collections that set the trends and determine what will be worn and most talked about in the coming year. And it’s not just in the luxury arena of watches that Baselworld excels. The event has become the leading global marketplace for diamonds, gemstones and pearl merchants as well as machinery and other suppliers to the industry.
Every year 1,500 brands from 40 countries exhibit in spectacular pavilions over a staggering 140 000 m2. For the stones and pearls dealers, there is a comprehensive catalogue available on the web, if you click right here: http://epaper.mch-group.com/baselworld/2016/selection-stones-and-pearls/
President of Westime, USA, Greg Simonian recently noted that ““There are always collections at Baselworld that stir up excitement with our customers,” and this year is sure to be no exception.
The exhibition has an incredible history stretching back to 1917, and it has achieved the remarkable status of becoming the one unmissable event on the watch and jewellery calendar.
Due to the size and scale of the event, and its popularity, the organisers have created a Baselworld app which will provide Daily Updates, as well as the Locations of the dealers that you are searching for, and insights into the Best of Basel.
