In Conversation with Fratello Watches: 2020 New Releases and the Future of Watch Events

Is it the end of watch events as we know them? The news that Baselworld won’t take place in 2021 – at least not in its usual form – has us wondering about the future of watch events in general. Are large trade fairs still relevant, or has the watch industry finally fully embraced the digital age? This year’s Watches & Wonders releases were exclusively debuted online in a flood of press releases and magazine articles – in large part due to the coronavirus, of course. To be honest, we’re still on the fence about the whole thing. 

Like all trade fairs, the appeal of W&W 2020 is obviously the new releases. We’re sharing which models blew us away, both positively and negatively. Enjoy the first part of our quarantine talk with Robert-Jan Broer and Balazs Ferenczi of Fratello Watches. 

Which was your favorite new release? Let us know in the comments!
