The 50th issue of WatchPro, the publication’s biggest yet, is out now, available in both print and digital formats.
The special March issue offers a comprehensive 20-page preview of the forthcoming Swiss show, with new product details covering 80 brands.
WatchPro editor James Buttery also compiles an exhaustive, in-depth ‘survival guide’ to the world’s biggest watch industry event, with tips and tricks for making the show work for you. The guide includes details on navigating the show, accommodation, transport and lifesaving items as well as essential phone numbers if Basel is your home-from-home this month.
The issue also covers the turmoil surrounding the Swiss Franc and the removal of the currency peg that had limited its value against the Euro with comment from leaders within the Swiss watch industry, financial analysts and UK buyers.
We also review the watches on show at SIHH in January after spending four days at Geneva’s annual luxury watch show and look at how the models on display might influence trends throughout the year.
WatchPro also gets the latest look at Jacob & Co.’s extraordinary Astronomia Tourbillon, a work of mechanical art that has gone from concept video to working model in the 12 months since last year’s Baselworld.
