Baselworld 2016 Preview

Categories Watches

It’s the biggest Watches fair in the known universe and this year’s Baselworld – held in, yes, Basel, Switzerland from March 21-24 – shapes as one of the largest ever held.

Collections introduced at Baselworld shape the world of watches for the rest of the year with many of the world’s biggest timepiece brands – TAG Heuer, Breitling, Rolex/Tudor, Gucci, Omega, Hublot, Rado and Tissot – all staging elaborate booths in which high-powered appointments and lots of gawking takes place.

Many brands release details of some of their anticipated pieces before the big event these days, some of which caught our eye and we’re bringing you here online ahead of a more detailed wrap-up in our Winter issue on sale in May.

Alpina are a heritage name when it comes to pilot’s watches and here put the flyback function – invented in the 1930s to aid pilots – front and centre of this sporty and stylish chronograph, powered by the Manufacture AL-760 calibre.
