Since its de­but in 1976, the Patek Philippe Nau­tilus has evolved into an en­tire col­lec­tion, with chrono­graphs, se­cond time zones, and an­nual cal­en­dars.

Rolex Gmt-mas­ter in Steel: For the New Pepsi Gen­er­a­tion

It’s be­come a cot­tage in­dus­try for on­line prog­nos­ti­ca­tors to try to pre­dict ahead of time what Rolex will roll out at Basel­world, the world’s big­gest watch fair. How­ever, few saw com­ing the time­piece that led off Rolex’s 2018 col­lec­tion – a new ver­sion of the clas­sic “Pepsi” Gmt-mas­ter II in “Oys­ter­steel,” fea­tur­ing sev­eral sig­nif­i­cant up­dates on both the in­side and out­side.
