Basel world kicked off today, and it is nice to see some of the lovely time pieces that are coming along. I'll Keep this opening short and sweet so we can look at some dandy's and let the thoughts and words fly.....
New Tudor Black Bay GMT... What a good looking watch. Snowflake hands, in house movement, a kind of throw back aesthetic, and leather or canvas straps optional, Tudor just did a great job on this one.
Tudor also popped this new 39MM Black Bay 58.... 39mm people! Watch companies are actually scaling back to more normal sizes....
Omega's Seamaster 1948: Dauphine Hands, Center seconds sub dial, and 38mm, and a tip of the hat to the first Seamasters.... Well played Omega..... Well played
Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic 38.... Just a classic looking watch, and at 38mm, finally a more classic size
Nomos Glashütte Autobahn: Great looking, very Nomos-y spin on a classic driving watch, plus it's not often they create a new from the ground up style, especially at 41mm.
Worst kept secret going into Basel, the Rolex GMT II, Ceramic bezel, now available in stainless steel.
If something is missing so far that I'm bummed by, it's that Seiko hasn't announced too much yet, but fingers are crossed.
Most of the brands released more watches than I can go over, but most of these here are really something that jumped out to me while going over threads today. Anybody see anything they liked?
