You’ve read our blog about our predictions for Baselworld 2019 a couple of days ago. Right now, as we speak, Baselworld 2019 is happening in full swing in Basel, Switzerland. Live from Baselworld 2019 in Switzerland, Phoenix Watch Company presents to you our top five picks of the new watches from Rolex, Hublot, and Tag Heuer, some of our our favourite luxury watchmakers!

Top five releases of Baselworld 2019, that are sure to have watch lovers talking about for weeks to come:

1. Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

This incredible piece of horology, which had the likes of Flavio Manzoni, the head of design of Ferrari behind it, is surely an eye-catcher. Elements like the display which has an engine-like movement, the unmissable prancing horse, and the red Ferrari ignition give this beauty a whole new dimension. The bold piece that draws inspiration from the “Gran Turismo” universe,  comes powered with a new UNICO manufacture movement.

The Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT IS available in king gold, carbon fibre and titanium.

2. TAG Heuer Autavia Isograph

This new edition of the famous TAG Heuer’s Autavia (a word drawn from mixing the words automotive and aviation) is the  epitome of elegance and function, combined to perfection.
From the outside, it does look like Tag Heuer delved into their history for inspiration but in reality, they are making the way for new technology. The best part is that in spite of the movements of the future inside, the TAG Heuer Autavia oozes elan like none other!

The TAG Heuer Autavia is available in five different steel models, and also two pieces in bronze.

3. Rolex Yacht Master 42

Soon to be known as the new face of the historic Rolex Yacht Master collection, the new Yacht-Master 42 sure comes as a brilliant surprise. Rolex has increased the size of case of by two millimetres, from 40 to 42 millimetres, but doesn’t seem bulky. As opposed to the previous Yacht-Master models, usually have had metal wristbands, the new Yacht-Master 42 comes with an Oysterflex  wristband made of rubber! Comfortable to wear, and visually appealing, this one is surely a show stealer.

We did predict this one! Just just like last year, the hero of the show this year as well, is the new model GMT Master range. The Rolex GMT Master 2, which is being called “The Batman” has a bezel that sports an all new look of blue and black.

The Rolex GMT Master 2 comes with a new-generation calibre 3285 movement which guarantees a power reserve of approximately 70 hours & is fitted with a new five-link Jubilee bracelet. The watch also comes with a useful oyster lock and also a comfort link. It’s very easy wearing, at 40mm, and is quite hot to look at too!
