There are two major watch events in every watch aficionados calendar. First is SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie) and then there is Baselworld. SIHH earlier this year brought some interesting pieces from Panerai, Audemars Piguet and A. Lange and Sohne. Baselworld 2013 is a few days away and we’re keeping our eyes peeled for what’s coming.

Baselworld 2013 is the focal point for brands such as Patek Philippe, Rolex, Omega, Breguet, Hublot, Glashutte Original and Zenith. Last year saw the release of the Rolex Sky-Dweller, the Hermes Dressage, an amazing Harry Winston Opus, and the Breguet Classique 10Hz.

For 2013, there have been rumors of creations such as a 44mm Rolex Daytona with no crown guard, and a change up to the Patek lineup in terms of its use of precious metals for some of its iconic chronographs. We’re eagerly waiting to see what’s on show and will report back on interesting developments. For those fortunate enough to be at the fair, happy browsing!
