Watches that stole the show at Baselworld 2016
Top picks from Baselworld 2016
Baselworld watch and jewellery show is arguably the watch industry’s most significant happening. Naturally, we bring you the watches that stole this year’s show: With its Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater, the world’s thinnest tourbillon with a 40mm extra-thin platinum case, Bvulgari has proved it can compete alongside the big names. We find Maurice Lacroix’s Aikon Gents watch extremely masculine due to its sharp angles and defined shape. Its dial comes in galvanic silver or black and its strap in premium quality calf leather. Considering its vintage feel, you could probably tell that Omega’s Constellation Globemaster was inspired by the brand’s early constellation models. It comes in 18k Sedna gold, 18k yellow gold, or stainless steel. Rolex’ new Cellini is pure class and elegance thanks to its traditional round case and overall polished finish. Then again, we didn’t expect anything less from Rolex. The Carrera 02T by Tag Heuer is part of the brand’s new concept of affordable Haute Horlogerie. It is the only COSC automatic chronograph with Tourbillon produced by the Swiss watch industry for under $15,500. There’s something sleek and cool about Zenith’s designs, and the same applies to the brand’s new Academy tourbillon Georges Favre-Jacot, which a grey-toned dial and brushed titanium. This chronograph by Patek Philippe chronograph is inspired by a one of a kind piece from the Forties, ref:5930. The complication watch comprises of white gold, blue opaline dial, and mechanical self-winding movement. Nixon’s best-selling Time Teller is a fashion statement without a doubt. Its minimalist design and marbled appearance makes it our favourite on the list.
