Founded in 1917, Baselworld is the most important event on the planet for jewelry, gemstones, and timepieces. Let’s take a look at what made Baselworld the world’s ultimate luxury trade show. The rehearsal for what would become Baselworld was run for the first time in 1917. Back then, the “Schweizer Mustermesse Basel” (muba) showcased a special fair for jewelry and watchmakers.In 1931, the inaugural “Schweizer Uhrenmesse Swiss Watch Show” conquered its own space with a pavilion at the muba. The pressure of the industry didn’t stop growing and, by 1986, Basel 86 – the new official name – was already admitting exhibitors from outside Europe.
