Baselworld 2013 … My personal Top 10

These are my favorite Top 10 watches of the established brands. I will continue listing my Top 10 watches with other categories very soon and I will tell which is my one and only favorite watch of Baselworld 2013.

So there are very good reasons to come back to my blog as often you can.

These are my Top 10 watches from the well established brands at Baselworld 2013.  I will only describe the watches with a view words, but you can find additional information by just searching the watches by keyword. I have been presenting them before on the blog …


Blancpain Bathyscaphe

This is a clever way to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms without touching the icon itself. The Bathyscape belonged to the historical family since the 1950s and now becomes an attractive alternative to the Fifty Fathoms.

Breguet Classique Chronométrie 7727

The use of magnetics pivots and its 10 Hz-high frequency escapement are just ahead of time. Breguet at its best! Monsieur Abraham-Louis Breguet would be more than proud seeing what his successors are doing today! Well done Monsieur Marc Hayek!

Breitling Emergency II

Not an electronic high-tech gadget but a watch that can save your live. As the first wrist-type dual frequency PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) and thus worn at all times, the new Emergency II is intended for a wide range of users in a variety of fields around the world, including aviation, navigation, climbing, trekking, hiking, exploration, extreme sports, etc.

Glashütte Original Senator Chronometer Regulator

Not just a good-looking wristwatch but also a technical very interesting Saxon timepiece. The Senator Chronometer Regulator is officially certified and bears a certificate from the German Calibration Service (DKD).

Longines HydroConquest Chronograph

This is incredible value for money. For somewhat 1600 Euros you get the Longines-exclusive column-wheel chronograph caliber L688 cased into a 41 mm, 300 meter waterproof steel case. It will be hard to compete against …

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Anti-magnetic

This watch starts a real revolution in modern watchmaking. Every other brand will have to think how to face this challenge. This total anti-magnetic watch needs no inner soft iron case to protect the movement against magnetic fields. Guys, “>15000 Gauss” is >15 times more than “Mille Gauss” …

Oris Aquis Depth Gauge

KISS at its best! (KISS = keep it simple and stupid) To all technicians and engineers out there: Things can be so simple in life you just have to think twice sometimes. A reliable and affordable divers watch with a depth gauge.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5227

This is a beautiful and unfussy timepiece, a Patek Philippe that one should really have in its collection. Available in yellow-, red- and white-gold. Well done Monsieur Thierry Stern!

Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue

What a beauty! Cool and affordable! With all the industrial power Rolex has, the Swiss giant should offer its sister brand own in-house movements. The ETA/Valjoux calibers used are the only blemish.

    I love them all. I would probably add the Rolex GMT II: a superb daily wear. A bit concerned about the cleanability aspect of the Oris in the long term. Superb coverage of Basel 2013 too. My congratulations.

    I have to say for a daily wear the Omega has my vote… There is just something about the use of color in the design that is very appealing to me.
