WATCHMAKING 2014 / BASELWORLD - EVERYTHING AND ITS OPPOSITE

Features - WATCHMAKING 2014 / BASELWORLD - EVERYTHING AND ITS OPPOSITE

Baselworld: mile upon mile of aisles, lined with hundreds and hundreds of booths looking every inch like places of worship, each dedicated to its own particular divinity. Whether the symbol is a crown, any number of crosses, an alpha or an omega, every brand, large or small, is hoping to attract new converts. It would be impossible for anyone hoping to join the ranks of the faithful to investigate them all, even if they share the task, as Europa Star has done in this issue. The visit is thus necessarily subjective, leaving plenty of room for chance encounters and serendipitous events.

A somewhat tired looking exhibitor at Baselworld confided in me that he had calculated he and his staff each cover around three kilometres a day just walking around their booth. I smiled and explained that the average journalist probably covered the equivalent of at least one marathon (42.195 kilometres) as we trudge around the various halls attending press conferences and then probably complete another in our annual quest for the watch of watches.
