Patek Philippe Leaves Baselworld

Patek Philippe

 Leaves Baselworld

Patek Philippe, along with Rolex, Chanel, Chopard & Tudor announced they were leaving the Baselworld Trade Show to form a new Trade show with the Fondation De La Haute Horlogerie as we see in the press release below which spells out all the details.

Patek Philippe President, Thierry Stern said:

"The decision to leave Baselworld was not an easy one to take for me, being the fourth generation of the Stern family to participate to this traditional yearly event. But life evolves constantly, things change and people change as well, whether it is at the level of those responsible for the watch fair organization, the brands or the clients. We constantly have to adapt ourselves, question what we do, since what was right yesterday may not necessarily be valid today!

Today Patek Phillip is not in line with Baselworld's vision any more, there have been too many discussions and unsolved problems, trust in no longer present.

We need to answer the legitimate needs of our retailers, the clients and the press from around the world. They have to be able to discover the new models from Swiss watchmakers each year, at one time, in one place, and this in the most professional manner possible.

That is why, following several discussions with Rolex and in agreement with other participating brands, we have decided to created, all together, a uniques event in Geneva, representative of our savior-faire.

Trevor Noah: Award Winning Comedian




Brown Gradated Dial, Rose Gold Bracelet

His dad is Swiss and his wristwatch, too. His mother is Xhosa. The South African comedian and host of The Daily Show is also on Netflix with shows like "Son of Patricia" and "Afraid of the Dark," and has sold out a stand-up world tour. Add to that his producing credits, a bestselling book, an increasing number of red-carpet appearances and his 10.4 million and 5.7 million Twitter and Instagram followers, respectively, and you’re touching the tip of the iceberg of Trevor Noah's celebrity.

This Nautilus fan has received a Primetime Emmy Award win from six nominations and was named one of "The 35 Most Powerful People in New York Media" by The Hollywood Reporter in 2017 and 2018. In 2018, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

His 2016 book, Born a Crime, became a #1 New York Times Bestseller and was named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times, Newsday, Esquire, NPR, and Booklist. A film adaptation based on the book will star Lupita Nyong'o as Trevor's mother Patricia.

A few years ago, he took the helm of Comedy Central’s flagship show—and the most politically influential comedy program on TV—The Daily Show. Since then Noah has been an object of both fascination and perplexity. He became the youngest comic anchor in an evening slot.

Ladies Nautilus Ad


Ladies Nautilus Ad

Blue Dial, Steel Case

There's something about a steel watch with a blue dial that makes it forever elegant. I love this ad because, one, it portrays a mom and her daughter in a hobby that I've found disproportionally masculine; and two, I can picture the child as she grows up, always looking up to that mesmerizing blue dial on her mother's wrist and remembering it forever.

Michael Fassbender: Aquanaut 5167A

Spartan, Superhero, Steve Jobs

Michael Fassbender

He was nominated twice for an Oscar; once for playing a slave owner in 12 Years a Slave, and then in 2016 for playing Steve Jobs. Michael Fassbender also joined the Marvel Comics team and played Magneto in X-Men: First Class. He wears an Aquanaut 5167A.

The German-Irish actor first caught viewers' attention in the 2001 war drama miniseries Band of Brothers. He made his film debut playing a Spartan soldier in Zack Snyder's 300. He also appeared as a British soldier in Quentin Tarantino-directed film Inglourious Basterds.

When launched in 1997, the Aquanaut created a sensation. It was young, modern and unexpected. Its case was a rounded octagon, inspired by that of the Nautilus. And it sported a “tropical” strap, made of a new composite material ultra-resistant to wear, salt water and uv radiation.
