Time to get chunky
Some big names are back with a fresh – and hefty – batch of new o erings
THE ANNUAL BASELWORLD watch fair is like all the year’s motor shows at once: nearly every new, high-end watch of note is launched there. It’s just taken place again, and the big news was the return of Rolex’s classic ‘Pepsi’ blue-and-red bezel stainless steel GMT after years in the back catalogue. Rolex’s junior brand Tudor was also somehow allowed to reveal its own ‘Pepsi’-bezel GMT, which is arguably closer in spirit to the original and half the price at £2790. But for the more car-focused we’ve picked three interesting new watches which you might have missed.
