Land, Air, and Sea: The Best of Rolex at Baselworld 2018

Allow us to make a sweeping generalization: at every watch fair, it’s the blinged-out pieces that get the most attention.

Of course there’s nothing bad about the ultra-embellished, diamond-studded watches that are half jewelry, half timepiece. After all, we have a massive soft spot for gems ourselves—it’s just that because people are magpies, we’re just naturally drawn to the shiniest thing in the bunch, and sometimes, the less extravagant pieces are pushed to the sidelines.

So, for this roundup, we’re putting the spotlight on the less blinding but, in our humble opinion, equally stunning pieces from one of our favorite brands. You’ve already seen the colorful, iced iterations. These are definitely more wearable, timeless, and gorgeous in their own right. Get them and you’re pretty much set for any and everything that life might throw at you.

That is, until next year.

GMT-Master II in Oystersteel

Pilot? Frequent traveler? Fan of the beloved dual-color bezel? This needs to go on your wish list, not just because it’ll, as fashion writers love to say, pop, but also because of its black dial, Jubilee bracelet, and a brand new movement, the caliber 3285, it’s all at once functional, comfortable, and even more resilient and reliable than its predecessors.

Datejust 36 in Everose Rolesor

They’ve combined Oystersteel and 18 carat Everose gold in an update of this classic, which makes this equal parts trendy and timeless. This is the watch you’re tempted to get in every color, and this new iteration is as convincing as it gets.

Deepsea in Oystersteel

The Titanic connection is enough of a reason for some people to want this revamp of the original but, if you’re a diver, chances are you pay close attention to more than face value. At the heart of the new Deepsea is the calibre 3235 movement which, with its Chonergy escapement, increased insensitivity to magnetism, heightened precision, and improved multi-position regularity, makes a very persuasive argument for a new addition to your collection.

Datejust 31 in White Gold

We couldn’t help it—it toes the line of extravagance, but holds back just enough. We did say we liked shiny things
