WatchTime - Inside.Basel Geneva

Picture 1 of 8

Welcome to ‘Inside Basel.Geneva’, America’s no. 1 watch collector event series. IBG is an award-winning luxury event series that brings the watches from Basel and Geneva to collectors in North America. IBG has been attended by more than 5,000 affluent watch aficionados so far.

Every year, WatchTime and noted collector Jeff Kingston team up to bring collectors the highlights from the Basel and Geneva watch fairs and the chance to try on the newest watches from an array of top brands plus numerous independents. IBG is partnering with the most exclusive 5-star hotels and upscale private clubs in each city. IBG is dedicated to bring you the best watches, the best wines and the best food; we collaborate with each venue’s sommeliers and chefs to create an astonishing atmosphere that is second to none in the watch-show market.

The evening begins with a 120-minute watch exhibition, with premium champagnes selected by each venue’s sommelier and corresponding signature hors d’oeuvres, and accompanied by live music. You’ll see the newest and most exciting watches long before they reach the stores, and brand executives will be on hand to answer your questions. Enjoy fine watches along with the finest wines and the company of fellow enthusiasts while perusing a collection of timepieces that can’t be seen anywhere else. We will also be joined by offical IBG partner BMW (for information about the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé, click here).

After the exhibition, you’ll adjourn to the dining room for dinner, during which Jeff will present the standouts from SIHH, Baselworld, and the Geneva Time Exhibition. The presentation covers the most interesting watch brands, and Jeff will present videos shot at manufacturers and on location in Basel and Geneva. During the presentation a 3-course seasonal gourmet dinner, created exclusively for IBG, will be served. Sommeliers will carefully select corresponding top-tier wines for a truly unique dinner experience.

IBG offers a great opportunity to be among the first to see the new watches and to meet watch executives and fellow aficionados. For many collectors, these events are the highlight of the horological year.
