I thought now would be an ideal time to look back on my personal favorite watches from Baselworld, first published on my blog, Watch-Insider.com. Let me know if you agree with my choices (listed here in alphabetical order) and feel free to share your own favorites in the comments box below.
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Chronograph
This is a good-looking, incredibly cool ceramic watch equipped with Blancpain’s new 5-Hz flyback chronograph movement. For me, a must-have!
Glashütte Original Senator Chronograph Panorama Date
Congratulations are due to the watchmakers in Glashütte, who have developed an amazing new chronograph caliber, and used it in a wonderful timepiece.
Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantième Ivory Enamel
One of the best watch designs I have seen in a long time, and a fine example of “less is more.” The watch features a two-level enamel dial that looks just gorgeous.
Nomos Glashütte Metro
Not only a good-looking watch but also the start of new era at Nomos: the Nomos Metro is equipped with the company’s own in-house-developed escapement and hairspring.
