Time to get chunky

CAR (UK) - - Insider - BEN OLIVER @thebeno­liver

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.
