At Baselworld 2019 Itay Noy introduced the Reorder. This product comes off as an attempt to rethink the watch dial as we know it by splitting it into analogue and “digital” sections. While the set of hands in the centre of the dial indicate the time, the numeric windows cut into the watch face fill up according to the respective hour.
The Atlas GMT is Monta’s strong introduction to Baselworld 2019. Aside from being water resistance in 150 meters, it’s at the same level as Skyquest (another of the brand’s entries for the event) when it comes to giving you three time zones in a dive-ready body.
The Sub 200 130th Anniversary Edition from Doxa is a motive for a celebration indeed at Baselworld 2019! It’s very vintage in its design though it carries that feel of modernity reflective of Doxa’s current style. Not to mention the fact that it’s water-resistant at 200 meters!
The new Globetimer UTC is a good example of how Porsche Design can definitely stand on its own despite having potential partnerships with Orfina and IWC. This new model unveiled at Baselworld 2019 is made with a travelling audience in mind. This watch is in three dial colours in titanium or with a black dial in solid yellow gold.
Lastly, we have a lovely update from a classic from the 60s with the new Zodiac Aerospace GMT. Slightly larger than the original model, however, all of the classic traits were kept in this new edition.
