Watches we can't wait to see at Baselworld

We’re heading to Baselworld for another round of intense watch gazing. Here are five watches we are looking forward to meeting in person.

  • Fabergé continues to blaze a trail in watchmaking, this year with the revolutionary Visionnaire Chronograph, with its series of concentric rings to display the time and chronograph functions. As full of mechanical surprises as Fabergé’s legendary eggs, the movement was developed by Agenhor (POA).
  • Colour is a big protagonist this year, and Hermès will be unveiling gorgeous lacquered dials for its men’s Cape Cod watches, including this subtly graded shade of red (£2,000).
  • Connectivity and customisation are the buzzwords this year, and TAG Heuer rides the wave with the new Modular 45. Developed in collaboration with Google and Intel, this smartwatch is totally transformable, allowing owners to change the lugs, straps, buckle and case to their heart’s delight (from £1,400).
  • For sheer showmanship, we won’t be missing Christophe Claret’s stand, where mind-blowing complications meet the dark side with the X-TREM-1-StingHD and its ghoulish skull, which appears when you breathe on the dial (SFr. 278,000).
  • This is the big watch story of 2017 as Omega’s legendary Speedmaster, the first watch on the Moon, turns 60. Expect a lot of interesting collector’s pieces as Moonwatch fever strikes big time at Baselworld (£6,240).
  • Boucheron Lierre de Lumiere watch

  • Dior Grand Soir Botanic watch

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
