Rolex has just introduced their new 2015 models at the Basel World watch show. Have a look at their website: www.Rolex.com for more detailed information. They where so kind not to invite me to see their updated collection. I wonder why? Geneva wrote tactfully: “We wish we could have accommodated your request for a presentation of our new models during Baselworld but due to scheduling constraints, we regret not being able to receive you on this occasion.” LOL! I’ll help my beloved watch brand anyway with extra promotion by posting their news online and reach out to some 15.000 unique RPR visitors that will tune in today! Let’s focus what Rolex has worked on for at least 1 year to surprise us..

NO steel Daytona ;-(((

The Rolex “Teaser” is online now! Is this a part of the new Rolex movement that will be introduced at Basel 2015?!? It almost looks like a flat automatic rotor in gold, visible true a sapphire crystal case back for the new Cellini collection?

RPR_basel_rolex_new_movement

New Rolex Teaser… Perhaps a rubber -caoutchouc strap with new clasp design for the sports models ?

RPR_Rolex_rubber_2015

 

YES, new rubber bracelet!

Next one below looks so not Rolex, almost a solar cell.. I’m getting afraid Geneva will bring us a smart watch, the I-Oyster, lol 😉 Probably it will be something in platinum judging from the color, let’s hope its beautifull!!..

Less then 1 week to go and then BaselWorld 2015 will start. Next week wednesday March 18th the press will hear what Rolex will bring us this year. Then from Thursday March 19th till 26th everybody can visit the watch show in Basel, more info you find over here. Last year 2014 Rolex was active at Basel with some great news. The whitegold Pepsi GMT, the steel Seadweller and the new reincarnation of the Cellini line. What will Geneva add this year? So far I hear there will be a Rolex Submariner in two tone with brown dial and brown bezel, which could look like this (quick photo shot impression).

NO pinkgold & steel brown Submariner, apparently it’s all about the Yachtmaster this years news.

RPR_2015_RolexSubmariner_Chocolate

And not in yellow gold and steel with brown / brown but as you see above in pink gold. Is brown the new blue???

RPR_2015_RolexSubmariner_Chocolade

Then a possible all Rolex movement could be introduced. One that is having a much higher frequency then they use now and could be integrated in all models. As recent patent below somehow states: “a timepiece mechanism for indicating and storing time information and a mechanism for correcting a device for displaying time information”  Could it be Rolex will introduce us the Daytona II, with split second or retrograde second?? I doubt, why ruin a proven design,  this would rather be something for Cellini to add to the collection…RPR_20150016232_01

The new 2015 Daytona movement with updated Rolex manufacture caliber?… –> Yes, new movement, ref 3255 is out!

Soon we will now what Rolex will bring us at Basel World 2015. Then about Tudor, will they finally get their own manufacture caliber?? Something we all think this great brand deserves so badly. Honestly, I think the only way forward for Tudor is that Rolex takes it serious and provides them with unique manufacture movements. An automatic time only with a chronometer certificate, plenty of power reserve and perhaps a non magnetic silicon spring in a new case design.

So here it is, the news leaked out already, the new Tudor North Flag in 40 mm with it’s own manufacture movement is called: MT5621 and is having a official certified chronometer, a non magnetic silicon spring with approx. 70 hours of power reserve. The new ceramic case design is in 40 mm, sapphire case back and waterproof till 100 meter. GREAT way forward for Tudor Watches!! I’m really happy with this development!

Check out the great Tudor watch collection on their website over here.. Well done passionated people at Tudor!

RPR_New_Tudor_collection_2015

And honestly after all these years of Basel News, I wish that Rolex would “only” come back with “Camfers” or ” Beveled edges” at their sports cases, which IMHO would bring much more detail, harmony and refinement as you can see below on a special “Heritage HS01” project I did to convince my dear friends in Geneva. Stay tuned as I will report about it. Whatever news it is from Rolex & Tudor, it will be MUCH better then the Apple watch 😉
