Top Watch Trends from Baselworld 2018

Every year, the Swiss city of Basel hosts Baselworld, the world’s largest watch and jewelry fair with hundreds of exhibitors and well over 100,000 visitors. As the ShopWorn team roamed the vast halls and gazed into the glass displays, we couldn’t help but notice some general themes that stood out amongst the vast assortment of new watches. Here is our take on the top watch trends from Baselworld 2018.

Bold New Versions of Iconic Luxury Watches

The GMT-Master, the Nautilus, and the Seamaster. These iconic luxury watches need no introduction to watch enthusiasts since they are almost as famous as the brands that make them. During Baselworld 2018, Rolex, Patek Philippe, and Omega unveiled new modern versions of some of their most popular long-standing models.

First there was the new Rolex GMT-Master II with the instantly recognizable blue and red “Pepsi” bezel. This contemporary edition of the inaugural GMT-Master pilot watch is crafted in stainless steel, outfitted with a Jubilee bracelet, and equipped with a new movement.

Then there was the Patek Philippe Nautilus Perpetual Calendar, which marries the brand’s famed luxury sports watch with a signature Patek complication—the perpetual calendar. The 18k white gold model boasts a range of practical functions including time, date, day, month, leap year, 24-hour, and moon phase displays, all set within the familiar porthole-shaped case and blue grooved dial.

Omega added some solid updates to their range of Seamaster Professional Diver 300M watches this year. The new Seamaster dive watches now sport 42mm cases, include ceramic details, feature the wave patterned dial, run on Omega’s Master Chronometer Caliber 8800 automatic movements, and come in a range of metal options including steel, gold, and two-tone.

Vintage Inspiration Remains Strong

For the last few years, leading watch brands have been looking back into their archives to take inspiration from vintage models. And 2018 is no different with the retro trend still going strong with plenty of vintage-inspired watches released at Baselworld.

An homage to the brand’s dive watches from the 1950s, Tudor’s Black Bay Fifty-Eight was a big hit at the show with its restrained 39mm case size, black domed dial with gilt details, in-house manufacture movement, and a choice of three straps.

The new Longines Heritage Military Watch looks like it could be purchased from a vintage store rather than a new boutique. Essentially a reissue of pilot’s watches supplied to the British RAF during WWII, the Military Watch has a 38.5mm steel case, an off-white dial with faux patina, and is powered by an automatic movement.

Oris debuted their Divers Sixty-Five collection back in 2015 as a tribute to the brand’s dive watches from the 1960s and for 2018, we saw two new models added to the lineup. With a choice between a 40mm case or a 36mm case, the new Divers Sixy-Five include steel cases, bronze bezels, domed sapphire crystals, and black and gold dials.

Unisex Watches

Speaking of sizes, there was a notable trend at Baselworld 2018 of the reduction of watch case sizes and the advent of the unisex watch. Traditionally, many high-end watchmakers have been focused on making mechanical timepieces for the men while depending on bejeweled quartz watches for the ladies. However, times are a changing and gender-neutral style is now also spreading to the luxury watch world.

Breitling unveiled a pared down version of their famous Navitimer watch with the Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic 38 by reducing the size of the watch to 38mm and foregoing the chronograph function. The result is a beautiful pilot’s watch with the fundamental Navi aesthetic suited for either his or her wrist.

To celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary, Mido released a pair of commemorative Commander Shade watches. Flaunting a funky 1970s design, sized at just 37mm, fitted with a mesh bracelet, and available in either steel or PVD gold, this is one watch that certainly blurs the lines between gender specific watches.

Finally, Chanel presented their latest unisex Boy.Friend Skeleton Calibre 3 timepiece with the signature case inspired by the bottle cap of the renowned Chanel No. 5 perfume. In an effort to highlight the Maison’s focus on haute horology, this new version of the Chanel Boy.Friend watch is fitted with the company’s third in-house movement, which can be seen via the skeletonized dial.

Overall, Baselworld 2018 gave way to plenty of “safe bets” with reiterations of popular models, vintage inspired products, and crafting watches suited for either him or her. And we welcome the strategy of watch brands focusing on new watches that people actually want to wear!





Sport the Two-Tone Trend with These Four Watches

If you’ve been keeping a close eye on new luxury watch releases from top brands, you’ll notice that the two-tone trend is back in a big way. We’d argue that the two-tone watch trend never really went away for the simple fact that they are super practical to wear.  Since it includes two shades of metal—typically gold and steel—a two-tone watch will easily match any other metal accessories you may be wearing that day, whether it’s cufflinks, jewelry, sunglasses, shoe hardware or handbag hardware. Here are four two-tone luxury watches for both him and her that mix metals perfectly.

Breitling Windrider Cockpit Chronograph

This sporty Breitling Windrider Cockpit Chronograph watch dons the two-tone colorway in an understated way. The 39mm stainless steel case is subtly accented with yellow gold rider tabs on the bezel, along with a yellow gold winding crown and yellow gold chronograph pushers.

In true Breitling fashion, the dial is sporty and technical with a trio of registers and a tachymeter scale running along the periphery. However, the addition of yellow gold hands, hour markers, and subdials adds a dressier touch. Paired with a leather strap, the two-tone Breitling Windrider Cockpit Chronograph gives true meaning to an elegant sports watch.

Corum Admirals Cup

For a dressier approach to a two-tone men’s watch, there’s the handsome Corum Admirals Cup. This time, we see the combination of two metals throughout the timepiece. The 42mm stainless steel case dons a faceted rose gold bezel and matching rose gold crown. Furthermore, there are rose gold center links on the steel bracelet. And finally, the vertically striped silver dial is home to rose gold hands and indexes.

Rose gold for men is a great alternative to yellow gold if you find the latter too flashy. Rose gold has a warmer tone to it and pairs really well with white metals such as steel. Flip the watch around and you’ll also see that the rotor of the automatic movement is also crafted in rose gold.

Longines Prima Luna

The two-tone steel and rose gold Longines Prima Luma is a sophisticated everyday women’s luxury watch. Its 30mm steel case features a rose gold bezel, while the metal link bracelet brings together the two shades of metals as well.

The crisp white dial sets the stage for the oversized center rose gold hands that sweep around to point to rose gold indexes. There’s even a discreet date window at 3 o’clock. Powered by a quartz movement, the ladies’ Longines Prima Luna is an easy watch to wear and fall in love with.

Oris Artelier

Alternatively, for the woman who appreciates mechanical movements and watch complications, there is the beautiful two-tone ladies Oris Artelier timepiece. Although the watch boasts a range of practical functions such as date and day indicators, a moon phase display, and an additional 24-hour time zone, the dial layout remains balanced and easy to read.

The rose gold bezel and hour markers are a striking contrast to the steel 30mm case, while the classic black leather strap underlines the elegance of this complex timepiece for women.

 

 





Color of the Year: Ultra Violet Luxury Goods

Every year, Pantone announces their Color of the Year and for 2018, they’ve chosen a vibrant purple shade dubbed Ultra Violet. When Pantone chooses their annual go-to hue, it quickly appears across plenty of different industries from fashion to beauty to home goods to even food. Ultra Violet, or purple, is no stranger to the luxury goods space as it’s been a favorite color of jewelers and other craftsmen for as long as we can remember. In fact, purple is the color most associated with royalty.

At ShopWorn, we have plenty of purple pieces to choose from for both men and women. Read on to discover some of our favorite ways to wear the 2018 Color of the Year.

 

Pomellato Lulu Ring and Earring Set

Italian fine jeweler Pomellato is renowned for their use of colorful precious and semi-precious stones as beautifully illustrated by these matching Lulu ring and earrings pieces. Using purple faceted amethysts and white diamonds set into warm pink gold, these Pomellato jewels are a stunning way to flaunt the color of the year.

Rather than uniformly cut gems, the purple amethysts on the Pomellatto Lulu ring are all slightly different, yet fit together seamlessly on the gold band. Mimicking the same round shape and various gem sizes, the matching Pomellato Lulu earrings are a dynamic approach to the classic small hoop style earrings—which are also a huge trend for 2018.

Whether worn together or separately, these Pomellato pieces offer a glamorous way to wear Ultra Violet every day.

Zilli Silk Tie and Pocket Square Set

Men can add a flash of color to their dark suits with this luxurious Zilli tie and pocket square set. On the Zilli tie in 100% silk, the elegant repetitive pattern merges dark navy blue, fresh white, and bright Ultra Violet purple. That pattern carries over onto the matching pocket square, along with small purple dots studded throughout the material.

Meant to be worn together, the dapper gent can put his best fashion foot forward by donning this graceful approach to the Ultra Violet must-have color of the year.

Dior Christal Ladies’ Watch

To complete the Ultra Violet look, ladies can wear the purple automatic Dior Christal ladies’ watch in stainless steel. In addition to the purple pyramid motif blanketing the bracelet, the diamonds on the bezel sit alongside pyramid-cut purple sapphires too. Furthermore, housed within the generous 38mm case is a dial that also sports a rich purple hue. This sets the perfect contrasting shade for the silver colored hands and indexes.

Plus, flip the watch around and you’ll even find a purple rotor on the automatic movement thanks to the transparent exhibition caseback. If you’re going to rock the color of the year, why not go all the way with a full purple ladies’ luxury timepiece.

Guaranteed to big a huge color this year, purple is a very wearable shade that is not only suitable for all seasons—winter, spring, summer, or fall—it can be paired with neutrals or other jewel tones. So for 2018, round out your wardrobe with some new Ultra Violet colored luxury pieces, available at fantastic prices from ShopWorn.

If chronographs are more your speed, then Breitling is the brand for you. The Windrider Cockpit Chronograph sports signature Breitling design hallmarks from the tachymeter bezel with four rider tabs to the onion winding crown to the trio of registers on the dial that work in conjunction with the chrono pushers on the case. Contrasting with the 39mm stainless steel case and black dial are plenty of 18k yellow gold accents while the black leather strap is finished off with white stitching. At the core of this Breitling chronograph is the COSC-certified B13 Caliber with about 42 hours of power reserve.

For a dressier approach, the Corum Admiral’s Cup Legend 42 Automatic is both precious thanks to its 18k rose gold construction and distinct due to its geometric dodecagonal 42mm case. The somber gray dial and classic black leather strap keep things elegant, as does its slim profile. The automatic movement powering the center hands, running seconds subdial, and date function is visible via the sapphire exhibition caseback.

Designer Cufflinks for Him

Mixing steel with leather is one of our favorite combinations in watches and the same rings true for cufflinks too. These round polished steel Davidoff Velero cufflinks include a textured black calfskin leather center for a classically elegant look.

Whether it’s for signing essential documents, jotting down important notes, or penning a personal handwritten letter, every gentleman should own a fine writing instrument.

To really get the ink flowing, nothing beats the pleasure of writing with a traditional fountain pen. The navy blue Montegrappa Desiderio fountain pen features pearlized bi-color resin along with an 18k white gold nib and silver trim. An elegant and meaningful gift indeed.

Finally, it’s a classic for a reason. The look of the Montblanc Meisterstück LeGrand Rollerball pen is unmistakable with its rich black resin, gold-coated details, and white star insignia. A true icon in fine writing instruments.
