HUBLOT BIG BANG
Hublot kicked off Baselworld 2018 in remarkable style with the brand’s first ever connected watch. Never miss a moment of the action during the iconic summertime tournament.
Let’s be honest, classic style never goes out of style and this new Zenith Defy is an example of exactly that. This charming model features the new Elite skeletonised movement.
BELL & ROSS
One for the adventurers out there. Limited to just 999 pieces the Bell & Ross Racing Bird is inspired by the newly designed BR Bird – a flying machine featuring spectacular lines.
Featuring the new stylish skeleton Calibre RW1212 is proof of the brand’s commitment to ever evolving craftsmanship and in-house designed movements.
TAG Heuer added a useful traveller’s function to the newly presented TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 GMT, complete with skeleton dial, at this year’s showcase.
BLACK BAY GMT
The new Tudor Black Bay GMT bezel is directly inspired by the burgundy and blue Black Bays, whilst the new Manufacture Calibre MT5652 has a 70 hour power reserve.
Geneva doesn’t ‘do’ post-Christmas blues – instead, all things haute and horological are celebrated with January’s spectacular SIHH trade fair and the LVMH group’s intimate Geneva Days showcase. As always, ROX was invited to the party, and we didn’t come back empty-handed…
Every March all eyes look to Basel in Switzerland as watch aficionados the world over descend to catch a glimpse of the latest releases from the world’s most respected brands.
If you’re a man proud to wear your style on your sleeve the chances are you probably already own a blue watch. The vibrant hue has been a dominating force in the world of Haute Horolergie recently, with blue dials and all-blue designs enjoying a moment in the spotlight. However, this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore is about more than just stepping into the blue, it is an undeniable statement of style.
