We’re still talking about the biggest surprise of this year’s event – the dual release of new GMT models from both Rolex and its sister company Tudor. So, we asked David Duggan for his thoughts on why the GMT continues to make waves and what he makes of these new offerings.
The Rolex Explorer was introduced in 1952 as the ultimate adventurers watch for those who have dared to climb Mount Everest, cross the trickiest of waterways, and navigate through the hottest of deserts. It features a distinctive 24-hour hand, an invaluable aid to distinguish daytime hours from night around the poles and underground.

This year’s Baselworld exhibition was a little different from its predecessors, but that certainly didn’t stop the big names pulling out some showstoppers. One to Watch spoke to David to find out what caught his eye at this year’s event.
We have noticed a particular decline in the past 20 years in the popularity of angular, square-faced and rectangular models. But, rarity drives price and the good news is that from Rolex to Patek, these timepieces demand a fraction of the price of their circular counterparts.
