It wasn’t just the big boys making all the announcements this year at Baselworld, the smaller independents were also getting in on the act. Frank Geelen over at Monochrome had the low-down on the latest release from Dutch duo Grönefeld, a very cool looking watch called the Parallax Tourbillon.
Rolex GMT Master II in White Gold
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.
