We recently returned from Baselworld, The Watch and Jewelry Show in Basel, Switzerland. We saw many impressive timepieces that we’re excited to bring to Alson Jewelers. Read on for our selection of the top ten watches that you’re going to want on your wrist.
Rolex GMT-Master II
Rolex has its GMT-Master II range with a new version in Oystersteel. This model is equipped with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a 24-hour graduated two-color Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic. The watch is fitted with a five-link Jubilee bracelet and the lugs and sides of the case have been redesigned. This handsome new version is equipped with the new – generation caliber 3285.
TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph GMT
This new model features the chronograph minutes and hours at 3 and 9 o’clock, with the permanent small second at 6 o’clock and the date window at 4:30. It is the first time that TAG Heuer has added this complication to its prestigious manufacture movement. The second time zone can be adjusted with the crown. The manufacture movement, visible through the skeleton dial, is housed in a solid 45 mm steel case, water-resistant to 100 meters.
Breitling Navitimer 8 B35 Automatic Unitime 43
The Navitimer 8 B35 Automatic Unitime 43 was designed with international travelers in mind. The automatic watch offers world-time indication through an independent hour hand that can be adjusted with the crown. At the heart of the COSC-certified chronometer is the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B35. The dial is available in black or silver. The 43 mm steel case with a rotating bezel comes with a steel bracelet, or an alligator leather strap.
Tudor Black Bay GMT
Fitted with the Manufacture Calibre MT5652, the Tudor Black Bay GMT sports a distinctive burgundy and blue bezel. It is now available with a new GMT function that establishes local time without losing sight of the time in two other time zones. Designed to withstand the elements, the Black Bay GMT has a steel case, 41 mm in diameter, and is waterproof to 200 meters (660 ft).
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea
The new Rolex Deepsea is equipped with the cutting-edge calibre 3235 and introduces a redesigned case with a broader bracelet and resized Oysterlock folding safety clasp. The timepiece features a D-blue dial with a deep-blue to pitch-black gradient. This dial was launched in 2014 on a commemorative version of the watch in tribute to the Deepsea Challenge expedition.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31
The new Rolex Datejust 31 features a redesigned case and is equipped with the new-generation caliber 2236. This beautiful model is in 18K yellow gold, accented with a malachite dial with a Roman VI and IX in 18K yellow gold, set with diamonds.
TAG Heuer Formula 1 Lady
TAG Heuer redesigned the Formula 1 Lady collection with a new dial, new interchangeable straps and an elegant diameter of 32 or 35 mm. The entire curve of the case and lugs has been refined, adding femininity to the watch and the bezel incorporates the collection’s characteristic notches. The interchangeable strap is available in brown, blue, white, red or black leather, or in metal.
Tudor Black Bay
The new Black Bay 32 combines the technical sophistication of a tool-watch in a smaller, refined model for women. Elegant and functional, the Black Bay 32 is available with the choice of a black or blue lacquered dial.
Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic
Ladies, borrow something from the guys with the 38mm Navitimer 1 Automatic. Stylish and compact, the Navitimer 1 Automatic is the ultimate statement of elegance and sophistication. This statement-making timepiece is also available in steel and steel & gold with a black, blue or silver dial.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36
This new Rolex Datejust 36 features redesigned case sides and lugs, and is equipped with cutting-edge calibre 3235. Accented with an Oystersteel and Everose gold bracelet, fluted bezel and Chocolate Jubilee dial set with diamonds, this timepiece is stunning!
