Men’s watches at Baselworld

Our favourite men's watches from Baselworld 2016 include some formidable architecture from Bulgari and a racing legend from Rolex.

  • Commanding the legion of Bulgari Octo watches in 2016, the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater broke the silence of a very quiet Baselworld watch fair in terms of innovation, positioning itself as the world’s thinnest minute repeater complication (POA).
  • The introduction of the Patek Philippe World Time Chronograph Ref. 5930G - the thinnest and smallest complication of its kind - marks a new era for the renowned Swiss brand, making it the first timepiece to combine a world timer and a chronograph since the 1940s (£48,480).
  • Currently the most popular model in the UK, the 43mm Tudor Heritage Black Bay dive watch gets a bronze diving suit this year and an automatic in-house movement specifically developed by Tudor for the larger proportions of this model (£2,730).
  • The openwork movement and dial of Arnold & Son's 41.5mm Nebula watch is the star of the show. These watches boast 10 bridges radiating from the perimeter of the dial to the centre like an inverted exploded star, hence the name Nebula (CHF 13,500).
  • An archetypal racing watch, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona takes pole position with this 40mm stainless-steel model with a black ceramic bezel and black and white details on the dial for extra legibility (£8,250).
  • Bulgari Serpenti turquoise and diamond watch

  • Bulgari Divas Dream watch

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

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.
