BaselWorld is the premier event in the luxury watch industry and serves as the platform for the likes of Rolex, Breitling and Hublot to show off the timepieces that they have in store for us all over the next 6-12 months. With this year’s event now having shut its doors for another year, we can cast our eye over some of the most striking luxury watches to have emerged from BaselWorld 2013.
For fans of high end timepieces, BaselWorld 2013 was a veritable hotbed of activity and there were some utterly astounding watches on show – some let’s look at 3 of the best finds at this year’s BaselWorld event below:
Breitling Emergency II:
Breitling chose BaselWorld 2013 to unveil the latest timepiece from the Breitling Emergency series of watches and, it’s safe to say, it did not disappoint. It is the world’s first wristwatch with a dual frequency transmitter and built-in personal locator beacon. An essential purchase for those who work in aviation, nautical or potentially perilous working environments as it is billed as the ultimate in survival instruments.

Hublot Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari:

The most luxurious watch unveiled at BaselWorld was potentially that of the Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari from Hublot. This mesmerising timepiece looks quite unlike anything else on the market and will set you back in excess of $30,000 but it will be well worth the money if you’re a luxury watch and car aficionado. Take a look at the Hublot Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari watch in action in the video from luxury watch retailer, The Watch Gallery YouTube channel below:
There were, of course, so many stunning timepieces shown off at BaselWorld 2013 but not many could compete with the spectacular Hublot / Ferrari timepiece which definitely garnered plenty of attention around the Hublot stall at the event.
Hublot are famed for producing timepieces that leave people’s jaws firmly on the floor and, at this year’s BaselWorld event, they definitely outdid themselves. A phenomenal feat of engineering and, unquestionably, one of the standout pieces from this year’s event.
TAG Heuer MikroPendulum:
TAG Heuer are recognised the world over due to the immense quality of the timepieces that they offer but they also are not afraid to push the boat out from time to time with timepieces that are quite unlike anything else on the market and this is certainly something that can be applied to their breath taking TAG Heuer MikroPendulum watch pictured above. A wonderful example of their dedication to pushing the envelope and crafting exemplary and painfully precise timepieces. Still officially a concept watch, the MikroPendulum is expected to be released at some point in 2013 and when it does hit the market, it will definitely have plenty of eager luxury watch aficionados waiting to snap it up.
