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.
Oyster Perpetual Non Date
The Oyster Perpetual is celebrated for resistance to water and corrosion and is the most recognisable of the Perpetual collection. The models have managed to maintain their design throughout history, upholding the classic Rolex style. The original Oyster model was the first waterproof wristwatch in the world and was the innovator of the self-winding perpetual rotor. COSC tested, this stainless steel 15000 model comes with a year warranty.

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.
