Leading manufacturers, designers and artisans of jewellery and watch industries will once again gather in Basel. Well-known brands, the latest shiny new items and collections, as well as a huge variety of opportunities in the watch and jewellery business can be observed at the Swiss exhibition Baselworld, which begins March 27 and runs till April 3.
Interweaving of watch and jewellery sectors determines impressive portrait of luxury class industries.
More than 1,400 brands and exhibitors from 100 countries will be placed at 13 exhibition halls with the total area of 141,000 sq. m.

Swiss watches catch new fans every year. And watch companies are constantly working to improve special chronographs, complicating their models to prove that even a small item can accommodate a variety of functions.
In the hands of skilled craftsmen and watchmakers jewelry watches have been able to surpass expectations in the know-how in fine watchmaking and jewellery industries. Over the past few months the Swiss watch manufacturers started sending their press releases with invitations to visit their booths and see unsurpassed masterpieces.
A huge number of watches models were made especially for sports championships and events, movies, concerts, auctions, fundraising purposes, anniversaries of companies, as well as an exclusive performance for celebrities and movie stars.
Particular attention will be drawn by expensive jewellery designs made specifically for Baselworld.
Each year, jewelers are trying to outdo each other to attract the attention of exhibitors and visitors.
