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 Submariner is the first watch to be water-resistant up to 100 meters (330 feet) and was introduced in 1953 during the pioneering era for scuba diving, consequently it was specifically designed to appeal to scuba divers.

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.
