Join us for a tour around the incredible, breathtaking Baselworld 2017 show. As you step through the sliding doors you are immediately hit with the towering, colourful and interactive stands aimed to entice. Showcasing their latest designs, the booths are filled with eager watch enthusiasts hoping to catch a glimpse of the innovative timepieces launched at the event. With our camera at the ready we’ve captured the excitement, buzz and enormity of the booths that lure retailers and bloggers worldwide.
Immediately turn right to explore the grand TAG Heuer display. The ambassador filled backdrop is split with a jagged edge to symbolise their familiar hashtag #dontcrackunderpressure. Weave through the crowd to find a skilled artist sketching a Tag design in pencil and a row of three stands that showcase the eagerly awaited Connected Modular 45. Four variations sit proudly at each demonstrating how the smartwatch works with customised dials and alerts from your phone.
A giant tank of live jellyfish gliding elegantly is a spectacular Basel experience brought to the show by Breitling. Stand and watch the sea creatures float in the vivid blue water for a moment before admiring their breathtaking designs. The amazing wooden structure showcases their sensational new releases in style.
You'll find the amazing white and red light show at Tissot next. Their sporting vision is showcased via an interactive platform that transforms into the MotoGP race, NBA basketball game or the RBS rugby championship. An unexpected, incredible experience that transports you to the games.
The musically inspired Raymond Weil offer an enormous wooden stand in the shape of a musical instrument that hosts their tribute to Bowie, Gibson and the Beatles. A stunning display that truly captures their core influences.
