Basel: it’s like Fashion Week–for watches. Baselworld is the largest watch show on the planet. The press, retailers and watch fans descend on the small city of Basel, Switzerland to preview the greatest new timepieces. If the name of the location sounds familiar, it is probably because it is the place where the famous Art Basel Fair originated. And speaking of artistry, there was a lot to get excited about in ladies’ timepieces. See the best of Basel below.

Pretty on the inside, skeleton watches show off all the wheels and gears and represent the height of horology. In other words, they might remind you of the acrylic trend that is sweeping through accessories, but to make one of these beauties requires serious watchmaking talent.

MULTI-WRAP STRAPS


This season, watch makers made it possible to wrap up your wrist with extra-long straps. Some designs go twice around. Others extend to a triple wrap. For the fashion risk-taker, there are even quadruple wrap straps.
