We’re attending Baselworld 2018 in Basel, Switzerland – truly the World’s Fair for watches and jewelry. We’ll have the opportunity to see the newest developments, trends, creations and innovations from hundreds of exhibitors in the watch and jewelry industry.
Recent trade publications have already leaked some of the new watches that will be introduced at the show. Among Rolex’s new designs are the reintroduction of the stainless steel GMT MASTER II with new ceramic bezel and Jubilee bracelet and the 18-karat rose gold ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA with a rainbow of 36 baguette-cut sapphires.
Patek Philippe’s new models include both technical and design premieres. Most exciting this year is the REF. 5531R, the first World Time minute repeater that always strikes local time. It is joined by the first NAUTILUS with a perpetual calendar, the first AQUANAUT chronograph, a new manually-wound ladies’ chronograph and revisited classics that will excite admirers and collectors of fine watchmaking.
TAG Heuer will feature pieces such as the TAG HEUER CARRERA HEUER 02, which offers a variety of bracelets aimed at racers, while Tudor has been super busy introducing three new BLACK BAY models. Sporting a distinctive burgundy and blue bezel, the famous Black Bay divers’ watch is now available with a new GMT function that establishes local time without losing sight of the time in two other time zones. The new BLACK BAY FIFTY-EIGHT is designed for slim wrists and the BLACK BAY S&G introduces a more formal feel with a model in steel and gold. The new BLACK BAY 32 combines the technical sophistication of a tool-watch in a smaller, refined model for women.
I could go on about all of the new, innovative models that are being introduced and about all of the great watch brands that we carry, but come see for yourself! Join us at our Watch & Scotch events on Thursday, April 12th in Charlotte and Saturday, April 14th at our Winston-Salem store to enjoy fine spirits, hear all about Baselworld and see some great pre-owned watches as well as our fine selection of new timepieces.
