The future of Baselworld, the high-end watch and jewellery trade show held annually since 1917, is in doubt with the defection of major exhibitors including Rolex, Swatch, Chopard, Chanel and Tudor.

After a drop from around 2,000 exhibitors to around 600 in recent years, the future of the Swiss show seemed in doubt, and the absence this year of Swatch and all its sub-brands hasn’t done it any favours.
