At the 41st BASELWORLD Watch and Jewellery Show over the past eight days, 1460 exhibitors from the watch and jewellery industry, from a total of 40 different countries, have had their exclusive innovations and high-quality collections on display in Basel. With the newly-opened hall complex by architects Herzog & de Meuron, a totally revamped show concept and more than 1000 new stands, BASELWORLD has been able to move into a new era and has greatly expanded its global significance. The visitor record achieved, with 122,000 buyers arriving from 100 countries, underlines the fact that another milestone has been reached in the history of BASELWORLD.

Every year we (Fratellowatches) visit the show and meet with several brands, covering their novelties and other interesting timepieces. In 2013 I shot this impression of the stands at the worlds largest annual watches and jewellery show.
