The Best of Baselworld

Our favorite watch blogger, Ben Clymer of Hodinkee, reports from the world's largest timepiece fair.

The Patek Philippe Reference 5270.

Baselworld is the biggest trade show in the world—in any industry. Each year, over 200,000 visitors come to this small industrial town in Switzerland to see the latest and greatest from over 2,000 different watch and jewelry makers. And while the Geneva shows highlight only high-end watches, at Basel you’ll see everything from a super-complication Patek Philippe to a $10 Timex sold at Wal-Mart. Here, spanning a wide range of prices and styles, are the 15 best things we saw.
