At Baselworld you get up close and personal with some of the world’s most amazing watches. Even better: many of them you can try on! Here are five wrist shots of some of the amazing new watches we have seen:
Thinking about traveling? Now that the Rolex Sky-Dweller is also released in stainless steel you might have found your perfect travel watch! It wears like any other Rolex: robust and solid, combined with that timeless Rolex look. Although also available in Rolesor (Rolex-term for steel/gold) we really liked the all steel version with blue dial.
Bulgari Octo Finnisimo Automatic
Bulgari seemed to have launched a full frontal attempt to de-throne Piaget as king of the ultra-thin watches. With the Octo Finnisimo Automatic, Bulgari introduced the thinnest automatic watch ever. Crafted from titanium, it wears so light and comfortable that you might even forget that you are wearing it at all. Fortunately, its good looks will prevent that from happening, as it will draw all eyes to it.
Harry Winston Histoires de Tourbillon 8
America’s top jeweler Harry Winston is giving another lesson on how to take a tourbillon to the next level. Two triple-axis tourbillons create a spectacular display of technological prowess in the 51mm case of this beast of a watch.
Patek Philippe Ref. 5320G Perpetual Calendar
Patek Philippe went into their archives and took inspiration from a 1940’s model. The result is this very charming perpetual calendar with triple-stepped lugs. Its looks are the perfect blend of vintage sportiveness with that classical Patek look. That is also why Patek did not fit it with a traditional alligator strap but went for calf leather.
Graff MasterGraff Tourbillon Minute Repeater
Not all the watches of Graff are fully set with diamonds, as the brand also has other qualities to show off. In a technical sense, this tourbillon minute repeater is a truly breathtaking. By crafting the dial from colored sapphire, you get a discreet look into the inner workings of the minute repeater, which sounds as good as it looks!
