The Watch and Jewellery Show
This year’s Baselworld is now over and we reported live throughout the show. If you follow us on social media, you’ll know that we have joined up with GQ Magazine to bring you regular updates from the show for the very first time. Over the two nights, we hosted live panel discussions with our CEO Brian Duffy and watch buying experts on the British GQ website and the Watches of Switzerland Facebook page. If you’ve missed the broadcasts, fear not – here’s another chance to discover our highlights so far from the world’s largest luxury watch and jewellery fair. Plus, don’t forget to keep following us on social media so you can be among the first to discover the latest watches.
With three of its most iconic watches turning 60 this year, we knew Omega would have something very special waiting for us at Basel. And we were not wrong! The brand is celebrating with beautiful new versions of all three: the Seamaster 300, the Railmaster and the Speedmaster. Not satisfied with simply tasking its in-house design team to study and reinterpret the heritage models, the Swiss brand has used unique digital scanning technology to provide the watchmakers with accurate representations of the originals – although the designs have been enhanced slightly for the 21st century. All three are cased in brushed and stainless steel and feature black dials, the watches are limited to 3557 pieces, and come in a modern version of the original 1957 packaging. For serious Omega collectors, the set can also be purchased as a truly handsome trio for around £16,000.
