Baselworld 2018: Zenith, Hublot, Patek Philippe, Greubel Forsey, and Breitling

By Pearl Fontaine

March 27, 2018

In addition to the latest watches in fashion, Baselworld 2018 brought some of the finest craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology we’ve seen in quite some time. Below is a selection of watches you’ll surely want to see.

Challenging gravity, Zenith debuted “Defy Zero G”—a full collection based on the 2017 Defy El Primero 21. The series features a second hand that measures to the hundredth of a second by using gyroscopic module (dubbed “Gravity Control”) that literally defies gravity. Each timepiece has a modern design and skeletonized face, is available in titanium or pink gold, and has the option for a rubber strap coated with alligator leather.

Hublot left their mark with the new “Classic Fusion” timepieces and six variations of their famed “Big Bang” collection (including the One Click Sapphire 39mm, the Unico Red Magic, the Unico 42mm, the Sapphire Tourbillon, the MP-11, and the The Big Bang Referee). The Big Bang Referee is unique for its soccer-inspired details that features a face with the choice of an international flag.

Patek Philippe debuted an asexual collection of manually wound watches. The elegant series of over ten timepieces is available in a variety of colors and materials including white and rose gold, alligator leather, and the newly released platinum. The brand also made available a series of three watches with matching cufflinks.

Greubel Forsey presented four new takes on the brand’s most loved designs with Quadruple Tourbillon Blue, Quadruple Tourbillon Black, and the Tourbillon 24 Secondes Vision Enamel. The brand’s black polishing technique is one in the same with this rare, optical phenomenon (wherein one flash of green light appears on the horizon), as the black polished surface of each timepiece absorbs direct light instead of reflecting it.

Breitling celebrated their history with the Superocean Heritage II. The divers watch, which was originally released in 1957, was re-designed in 2017 for its 60th anniversary, returning once again during Baselworld 2018. This time, the piece is available in either a 44 mm or 42 mm case, and in gold or stainless steel. The new piece seamlessly blends modern technology with the timeless spirit of the original Superocean model to create a watch that is both stylish and functional.
