Watching Baselworld

The fashion weeks for fall are almost over and the style set has been playing close attention to Baselworld. The annual event in Switzerland (Basel, of course) is where watch and jewelry companies release their latest designs. Collectors can’t wait to see what is new and next.

For Rolex connoisseurs, that means the introduction of the Sky Dweller — an aviator version of the classic Sea Dweller dive watch. For those who might spend more time on earth, they also introduced a new version of the Datejust II. It was introduced in 1945 as the first wristwatch that also displayed the date and has been worn on the arms of Michael Jordan, Khloe Kardashian, Nick Jonas, Minka Kelly and Bono. See the latest version here and Portero’s latest selection, including vintage here.

A favorite pictured (below), is the Datejust Steel Watch 16200 with it’s elegant, clean lines.
