It’s time to own up to this year’s Basel Predicitons.
- From everyone you’ve never heard of we will see more new Tourbillons. Enough with the tourbillon already, how about a totally new and useful complication. — I haven’t seen much about this actually except in the pre-Basel reports we saw all kinds of double & triple tourbillons.
- This one is a no-brainer: We’ll see the ceramic bezel on the steel & gold submariner this year. It will be available in blue and black and will get the new Glide-Lock Clasp. — The picture says it all.
- The Day-Date will receive an annual calendar. –> A guy can hope can’t he? Maybe it will filter down to the datejust in about 5 years when I’m ready to purchase one. — OK I was dead wrong on this one. I still wish I had been right but we did see a new Datejust II.
- More “feminine” dials for 31mm and 34mm watches. — Sorry, more feminine dials and a full diamond bezel for the 36mm Rolesor Datejust.
