The first news from the 2018 edition of the “Oscars of watchmaking” – the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève – have arrived, and returning jury member Elizabeth Doerr thinks that overall things are looking very positive for the popular competition.
German watchmaking was well represented at Baselworld 2018, so without further ado let’s have a look at three Saxon manufactures with a variety of interesting new products introduced at the world’s largest watch fair in these The Watches TV videos
Elizabeth caught up with Kiss drummer Eric Singer as Baselworld 2018 was drawing to a close, and he shared his personal list of the top ten watches he saw at the fair.
I had the good fortune to visit Rome on Thursday for the opening of ‘Watchmakers: The Masters of Art Horology’ at the Maxxi Gallery in Rome, and if you have a few minutes I’d like to share the evening with you and let you know where you might be able to see the exhibition in the near future.
Please join our traditional Quill & Pad round table discussion on Baselworld 2018, where we discuss what we did and didn’t like at the world’s largest annual watch exhibition.
Baselworld 2018 began for the Quill & Pad team on Wednesday, March 21, and from our very first meetings it looked obvious that green was back. But is it the new blue?
The follow day further confirmed that view as we saw one fantastic green-themed watch after another. On remarking on the apparent predominance of green this year over the perennial blue to one brand representative, their reply was, “Green is the new blue.” But two days do not a Baselworld make and blue came back in force.
As I arrive home exhausted from the extravaganza that was Baselworld 2018, but still running on enough residual adrenaline to get words out, I jot down a few of my thoughts from the fair while they are still fresh.
In this age of digital information, watch companies try to get ahead of the competition by releasing news on new timepieces ahead of the big watch fairs. This year is no different, and in honor of the upcoming 101st edition of Baselworld, which opens its doors to the public on March 22, 2018, we present you with an overview of 15 new models.
These are the five prettiest cars from the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in my opinion (practicality be gone): Koenigsegg Regera, Hennessey Venom 5, McLaren Senna GTR Concept, Pagani Huayra Roadster, and Pininfarina H2 Speed. As a bonus, one of them was introduced at the same time as a new Richard Mille watch decorated in McLaren orange!
‘Watchmakers: The Masters of Art Horology’ is an international traveling exhibition of watches by 13 of the world’s best independent watchmakers and horologists. This special exhibition of horological art was created by the Maxima Gallery in Rome at the behest of gallery director Claudio Proietti.
