5 Outstanding Classy Watches Fresh From Baselworld 2017


Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

You can never have enough variants on a perennial favourite, and Rolex is delivering three: a yellow, white gold and Everose gold Cosmograph Daytona, all with vivid, monobloc Cerachrom bezels in black and fitted for the first time on the Oysterflex (rubber-coated titanium with a patented cushion system) bracelet.

Hublot Big Bang Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph

When you let supercar designers work their magic on a timepiece, the result can be stunning. Made to celebrate Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, this limited edition also features a brand new movement, the manual winding HUB6311, which includes a mono-pusher chronograph, tourbillon and five-day power reserve.

Zenith Defy El Primero 21

It’s been far too long – almost a decade – since Zenith released a new Defy watch, and it’s returned with a bang. The new COSC-certified El Primero 21 calibre has two separate escapements made of a patented material, Carbon-Matrix Carbon Nanotube, with one just for the chronograph, allowing it to run at a whopping 360,000vph.

Hermes Slim D’Hermes L’Heure Impatiente

Not one to forget the watchmaking is as much about charm as it is impressive craftsmanship, Hermes has released another playful offering. Essentially an alarm watch, the L’Heure Impatiente lets you set a time that you are looking forward to, and when it comes it will remind you, not with a long ring like a typical alarm watch, but a single, clear chime.

Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition

Rather than make a modern interpretation of a beloved classic, Omega has decided to honour the Speedmaster on its 60th anniversary by recreating the original reference CK2915-1 to a tee. Its guts though, understandably, have been updated from the calibre 321 to the calibre 1861. It is available in a box set alongside a similarly remastered Seamaster and Railmaster from 1957.
