Baselworld 2016 is almost here, beginning March 17th and running through the 24th. aBlogtoWatch will be there checking out the newest watches from brands like Rolex, Omega, Tudor, TAG Heuer, Breitling, Bulova, and many, many more, from the biggest names to the cool independents.

Follow coverage here, as well as on our various social media channels such as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Google+, and Twitter for on-the-spot updates and extra coverage beyond what you will see here. Check #BaselworldABTW often to see all our content on the aforementioned social media channels. It will be an exciting show, and as always, we try to mix up our coverage style each year, so check out what we hope to be a very personal Baselworld experience, as well as a look at the most important and interesting watches that will be released this year.

The proliferation of smart watches and shaky Swiss luxury watch sales have been the focus of a lot of industry chatter this year. For the most part, the growth in smart watch sales and slowdown in luxury watch sales happen to be coincidental, as opposed to directly related. In fact, in addition to new smart watches being released, we anticipate the Swiss luxury watch industry to continue to experiment with new materials like titanium, more in-house movements, as well as the possibility of more consumer-friendly pricing.

We're looking forward to another exciting Baselworld and encourage you to keep up with our pre-, post-, and live Baselworld 2016 coverage here.

    I hope that Omega updates the Planet Ocean line

    I predict that the big Rolex news will be a ceramic bezel on the steel/gold Daytona and a ceramic bezel on the steel Yacht-Master (replacing the nicer platinum bezel on the steel Yacht-Master now).

    Apparently Tudor is going to be late to the size fad and bronze fad with a 43 mm bronze Black Bay.

  • The problem with the watch industry is that there is no really set-in-stone release date for most of these watch announcements. Hell, we’re still waiting for some watches to be released that was announced in BW 2015. Omega, where are those new Ploprofs from March 2015?
