Baselworld 2019 is currently ongoing in Switzerland. In case you're not familiar, the annual event is basically the North American International Auto Show of the watch world. Each year, the world's biggest watchmakers reveal their latest pieces and collections as the rest of the horology world waits with anticipation.

The reason we're featuring it here is because the design bears a striking resemblance to high-revving racing tach.

And just like a high-performance car, the watch contains some carbon bits as well, notably within its main structure which boosts its shock resistance. Because of all that carbon, the entire thing only weighs around 72g. It's water-resistant to 200m. 

The watch also has some onboard tech. It has a function which adjusts the time automatically to various timezones across the globe. It also has an LED light and battery level indicator. Speaking of the battery, this watch recharges via solar power.
