Rolex Baselworld 2018 March 22nd through March 27th in Messe Basel, Switzerland

If you want to go to the best jewelry and timepiece show in the world, Baselworld is the place to go.  This year it will happen between March 22nd through March 27th.  It has been cut down by two days from previous years due to some reduction in the number of sponsors.  This event, though, will still be quite enormous, with thousands of vendors showcasing their newest line of timepieces and fine jewelry.

This year, there were over 4000 media in attendance and thousands of buyers, and potential customers hoping to dazzle their palette with the latest the finest watch craftsmen in the world have to offer.

Here are a few outstanding new releases that came out of the Rolex camp at the 2017 Baselworld.  I am looking forward to the newest designs to be unveiled in 2018.  The cost is a mere $150 for the whole event.  If you are looking at finding the finest watches, watchmakers and jewelry designers on the planet this is the show to see them all in one place.  For more information go to the website https://www.baselworld.com
