The luxury packed event which unfolds in the spiritual home of watchmaking, Switzerland, is always eagerly anticipated and excitement about this year’s event had reached fever pitch by the time it got underway late last week and, courtesy of The Watch Gallery, we have exclusive images from the event.

The event, which serves as a platform for the world’s best watchmakers to unveil their latest offerings, certainly got off to a jaw-dropping start with the world’s biggest watchmaker, Rolex, boasting a stand of epic proportions – which measured an astounding 1230 square metres and took 6 weeks to construct. Take a look at their stunning stand below:

A particular buzz was to be found around the Zenith stand at BaselWorld as they managed to secure a pretty impressive special guest in the form of Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner who flew into the record books late last year for jumping from 39 kilometres and breaking the sound barrier in the process – he is also a brand ambassador for Zenith. He was in attendance to help launch a new range of Zenith Pilot timepieces and show off the actual watch he wore during his descent to earth – which you can see below:

For any fans of luxury cars as well as luxury timepieces, the Hublot stand was the place to be at this year’s BaselWorld as they showcased a collaboration with the luxury car brand, Ferrari. Take a look at the utterly breath taking Hublot Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari watch below:
