Next week, at least 150,000 people will flock to Basel, Switzerland, for the world’s largest watch show, Baselworld. Our gang, of course, will be among them. Because of the frenzied pace of the show, most Baselworld visitors don’t get to see much of the city. That’s a pity because there is a lot more to it than the show. Here’s what’s beyond the watch halls.
It’s February 29, and in honor of this extra day on the 2016 calendar, we’ve gathered seven calendar watches that were introduced at this year’s SIHH watch fair in Geneva. Scroll down to see the watches, and don’t forget to reset your own watch (if necessary) at midnight tonight!
While we at WatchTime eagerly await the start of SIHH 2016, we offer here a glimpse of some of the new watches that we’ve seen in advance, from brands including Audemars Piguet, Cartier, IWC, and Panerai.
