KEEPING TIME: The international editions of GQ magazine on Friday hosted their first cocktail reception at the Baselworld watch and jewelry fair. Condé Nast International president Nicholas Coleridge noted that the media group had 140 reporters, editors and publishers from its various publications attending the fair, the biggest annual event for the watch industry. “This is more than ever before and demonstrates our passion and commitment to covering the watch sector,” Coleridge said at the event, staged at the city’s Historical Museum. Condé Nast magazines last year dedicated a combined 1,800 editorial pages to timepieces, with GQ editions alone accounting for some 850 pages, he added.
