Photos from BaselWorld

Il nuovo Rolex ExplorerFirst day of Basel. Almost in real time, some 'stolen' pictures of the new Rolex and Patek Philippe products.

To entertain the wait before our full report in issue 188 (June).

As we expected, Rolex showcased the new Explorer, in a larger size, and the steel version of the Submariner, also with an all-green bezel and dial...

From Patek Philippe, in addition to the manual chronograph we showed you in preview, a new dial colour and a new complication (annual calendar) for the Nautilus.

A new dial, in addition to the one already in the collection, is also available for the annual calendar chronograph Ref. 5960, also in a platinum case. It is now available with both a blue and a grey background.

Patek, in any case, has put all its eggs in the chronograph basket this year and has dusted off its ultra-flat split-seconds calibre, also offered in an exclusive perpetual calendar version, for a very, very lucky few.

And the Salon is only just beginning...
