BaselWorld! 2019– Part 1: Rolex

Mar 23, 2019,07:56 AM

In Zurich for business and I detoured over to Basel to see the show. I almost skipped it because I was somewhat disappointed in the novelties this year, but it is always fun to go and I am happy I did.

Here is a sampling of some of what I saw along with my thoughts/comments.

Probably will be very controversial, but really stunning in the metal. Nothing else like it, that’s for sure.

My 6238 pre-Daytona is along for the trip and making its return to Switzerland 53 years after its manufacture!

The famous entry way to the show

Rolex seems to be everyone’s first stop (even though you can’t actually but most of their watches. Lol

Probably Rolex’s star this year. Yachtmaster 42mm in white gold

Big controversy around this but I thought it actually looked great with its gilt details. A statement watch for sure and I wonder if all gold will be coming.

I personally love the white gold GMT with blue dial— A watch I hear several refer to as the “Superman”—a fitting name for sure.

The Rolex jeweled creations were pure fire and it seems to be a big emphasis of the collection now.

And now some great looking stars from the past still getting attention

especially ladies creations manage to rather easily outdo PP's in their aesthetic distaste. Just my feelings of course. Cheers, Filip

Totally agree :)
