Watch Insider: My Top 10 Watches from Baselworld 2013


Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Anti-magnetic

This watch represents a true revolution in modern watchmaking that every other brand will have to eventually address. Omega’s much-touted timepiece achieves an unprecedented level of anti-magnetism despite having no soft-iron case to protect the movement against magnetic fields. And of course, “>15,000 Gauss” is 15 times greater than 1,000 Gauss (as in the Rolex Milgauss).

Oris Aquis Depth Gauge

KISS at its best! That’s KISS as in, “Keep it simple, Stupid.” Oris has created a reliable and affordable divers’ watch with a depth gauge.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5227

This is a beautiful and unfussy timepiece, a Patek Philippe that everyone should really have in his or her collection. It is available in a yellow-, red- or white gold officers’-style case, with a cream-colored lacquer dial.

Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue

Tudor, soon to return to the U.S., has made a big splash this year with cool and affordable models like this one. With all the industrial power Rolex has, the Swiss giant should offer its sister brand its own in-house movements. The ETA/Valjoux calibers used are the only blemish on Tudor.

Zenith Pilot Baron Rouge

If you have not placed your order for this distinctive pilots’ watch yet, you’d best hurry up: only 500 pieces will be made. This watch is almost too cool to be real.
