BaselWorld 2013 has, undoubtedly, been a resounding, unmitigated success with each of the world’s leading watch brands showcasing some truly astounding timepieces over the last few days. One brand in particular turned more heads than most at this year’s event, and that brand was Zenith – who had a rather impressive special guest in the form of Austrian daredevil, Felix Baumgartner – who joined the Swiss watchmakers on stage to help launch a new range of Zenith Pilot timepieces.
Felix Baumgartner, who became the fastest man on earth when he broke the speed of sound jumping from 39km and sky-diving to earth, was on hand at BaselWorld to help unveil Zenith’s latest range of timepieces for 2013 but, it’s fair to say, most people wanted to focus on the daredevil’s jump and, more specifically, the timepiece he wore during his descent – which you can see below:
Zenith didn’t just rely on the appearance of Felix Baumgartner, of course, they also had plenty of impressive watches to showcase at their stand – including those seen below:
All of these Zenith timepieces were greeted with a pretty rapturous reception and positively exuded the sort of luxury that we have all come to expect from one of the world’s leading Swiss watchmakers. For a more extensive selection of Zenith watches, take a look at The Watch Gallery.
