The Baselworld 2017 had an abundance of timepieces from the ultra luxury to affordable ones and of course we all deserve to have something ticking on our wrists don’t we. So without further ado, here are the top 5 watches that we in Wristreview are delighted to share with you.

5. Chopard L.U.C XPS Twist QF Fairmined

This is a dressy watch sporting a 40mm case and such and of course being a Chopard, it embodies all that makes Chopard a winner for elegant watches. What makes it unique is its sunburst dial that’s inspired by the raw structure of gold nuggets extracted from the mines. It is powered by the L.U.C Calibre 96.09-L with 65 hours of power reserve, now this is the power that you need for any occasions. Read more here…

4. Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 50th Anniversary

There are many diver’s watches in the Baselworld but for us, the Rolex Sea-Dweller is the best divers hands down. Its helium escape valve technology is unbeatable and with 1,220 meters (4,000 feet) of water resistance, do you really want to bet against it? A new Calibre 3235 powers the new Sea-Dweller cranking an incredible 70 hours of power reserve. The watch also comes with a Superlative Chronometer certification which is at the top of the pack. Read more here…

3. Omega 1957 Trio Limited Edition

If you’re looking for classics, look no further than the new Omega 1957 Trio Limited Edition. These 3 watches pay tribute to Omega’s 60th anniversary so they’re technically renditions of the 1957 original Speedmasters. All 3 watches (Speedmaster, Railmaster, and Seamaster) feature the same iconic “tropical” dials which are gorgeous on the vintage Omega watches. The 2017 renditions are so genuine thanks to Omega for utilizing digital scanning and imaging techniques complemented with raw designs and original drawings of each model to arrive at the aesthetics of the 1957 Speedmasters, heck even retro logos have been copied very well. Read more here…

2. Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph

Don’t think about the Fabergé eggs now rather this unique Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph watch. If there’s one thing that distinguishes it from the other chronographs presented at the Baselworld, it has to be its unique dial layout. Normally chronographs utilize various sub-dials but not this one since it places its complication at the center so basically the elapsed time is read just like the hours, minutes, and seconds of a standard three-handed watch, neat. It comes in 2 versions, one in 18K rose gold and titanium, and the other in black ceramic and titanium. It’s powered by a self-winding caliber AGH 6361 also known as the AgenGraph with roots tracing to Wiederrecht, the man behind the Fabergé Visionnaire. Read more here…

1 . Breguet Marine Équation Marchante 5887

Topping our list is the enigmatic Breguet Marine Équation Marchante 5887 otherwise known as a Grande Complication watch. It sports perpetual calendar plus a tourbillon that that you can see on the dial. Time is presented is overly complicated fashion adding to its sohistication, something that Breguet is known for. Its source of inspiration is fascinating, think vintage Navy stuff and all that coolness. Its superb dial (in blue and silver) is where it showcases its story. It has a wave style guilloché on the dial, complete with the little anchor on the retrograde date indicator running from 9 to 3 o’clock. There is also the harpoon styled hands adding unique personality to the watch. This is by far a classic complication that only Breguet delivers. Read more here…
