The leaders of the watch industry decided to postpone the release and presentation of new products due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rolex and Patek Philippe were the first to announce their decision. Even before the official cancellation of Baselworld 2020, these brands decided to not participate in the exhibition, and later postponed the presentation of new products without setting a date.
For the first time in history, Patek Philippe has announced the launch of online sales of its products. In Russia, customers can order products by Patek Philippe on the Mercury website.
Meanwhile, the Bulgari brand is set to present new products in 2021. According to a statement by Bulgari’s CEO, Baselworld 2021 might be able to reunite the watch industry after today’s separation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
