In 2015, the AHCI celebrates thirty years of existence. This is a genuine milestone for any organization, and is really a grand, grand accomplishment for a loose grouping of more than 30 artisans of varying nationality, background, and level of accomplishment.
Fifteen members of the Academy exhibited at the common booth of the 2015 edition of Baselworld: Svend Andersen, Robert Bray, Vincent Calabrese, Miki Eleta, Beat Haldimann, Frank Jutzi, Masahiro Kikuno, Sebastian Naeschke, Aniceto Pita, Antoine Preziuso, Andreas Strehler as well as candidates Hajime Asaoka, Xushu Ma, Ludovic Ballouard, and Andreas Fritsch. Asaoka and Ma were confirmed as full members during the general assembly held on Saturday evening.
Other AHCI members also had their own booths at Baselworld, among them Peter Speake-Marin, Konstantin Chaykin, Urwerk (Felix Baumgartner), and Marco Lang (Lang & Heyne). Here we present five watches by AHCI members we saw at Baselworld.
