For whatever reason all eyes seem to be on Rolex every year at Baselworld, with everyone hanging out to see what the lumbering giant will do next. My personal favorite for this year was the Rolex GMT Master II in White Gold, so I recommend reading this great write up on it by Jason over at Professional Watches.

Of course this list wouldn’t be complete without an entry from The Watch Lounge also. British watchmaker Bremont in collaboration with aerospace experts Boeing officially unveiled the Boeing Model 247 at Baselworld on Wednesday and we were fortunate enough to get our hands on this very stylish, and not to mention robust, new sportswatch. Definitely worth a look if you missed it last week.

    I don´t know how Louis Vuitton, one of the most important brands in the luxury products segment may launch on the market a watch with such dial. It is very confusing not to mention without the expected elegance.
