The fastest chronographs at Baselworld

Taking pole position in the precision race, these new men's watches launched at Baselworld are all set to race off the shelves.

  • Zenith is determined to maintain its pole position in the high-frequency precision race and unveils its Defy El Primero 21, a top performing chronograph capable of measuring 1/100th of a second, as the central chronograph hand performs a full sweep of the dial in one second (£9,100).
  • Patek Philippe is renowned for its marriage of complex complications and Ref. 5960/01 fuses the functions of a flyback chronograph with an annual calendar. Housed in a white gold case for the first time, the pushers recall certain vintage models, while the blue dial captures the current colour trend (£47,740).
  • Omega’s iconic Speedmaster turned 60 this year and, thanks to digital scanning technology, is feted with an accurate recreation of the original 1957 model, the first watch with a tachymeter scale on the bezel and the first watch to land on the Moon (£5,360).
  • Synergy at its raciest level as Hublot teams up with Ferrari designer Flavio Manzoni to create the case of the new Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph, incorporating aerodynamics and materials like those used on the supercars produced in Maranello and powered by a thoroughbred engine by Hublot (£114,000).
  • The legendary Rolex Cosmograph Daytona chronograph speeds back on the scene in a handsome yellow gold case, with an inky black ceramic bezel and black chronograph counters. Fitted with a new Oysterflex bracelet in elastomer, this model is going to race off the shelves (£20,200).

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
