Baselworld 2019: Chanel, Graff, Chopard, and Bell & Ross

By Pearl Fontaine

March 25, 2019

Continuing our coverage of the new watches being presented at Baselworld, below we’re sharing our favorites from Chanel, Graff, Chopard, and Bell & Ross.

Chanel’s Première Rock Édition Noire is both an elegant watch and a beautiful bracelet. Limited to 55 pieces, the watch features an all-black design—complete with an ADLC treated steel case, a black lacquered dial, and a matching steel chain and black leather bracelet that wraps around the wrist. This petite timepiece is powered with high precision quartz movement and is complemented with one tiny sparkling brilliant-cut diamond.

While Graff debuted a number of gorgeous jeweled timepieces, the highlight was the Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond watch. Sparkling from all angles in a brilliant golden yellow, the timepieces is covered in 60 of the rarest yellow diamonds (each handpicked by a member of the Graff family) for a total of 25 carats. Under the stones, yellow gold makes up the body of the watch, created with the brand’s recently developed joining system to ensure a comfortable, flexible bracelet that showcases the stones.

Chopard’s new L.U.C. Flying T Twin is the brand’s first ever caliber to be outfitted with a flying tourbillon. Created with a classic aesthetic in mind, the Flying T Twin offers a unique twist with a rose gold case and charcoal grey ruthenium dial, featuring a hand guilloché honeycomb design at its center. The 40mm watch (also measuring in at an impressive 3.3mm thickness) is complete with gilded Dauphine fusée-type minutes and hours hands, and a hand-sewn alligator strap (which has been plant-dyed) in a smooth matte black.

Bell & Ross introduced new additions to its Diver collection, including the military-inspired BR03-92 Diver Green Bronze. Compliant to both diving and military standards, the new piece embodies the spirit of a military watch, both in its aesthetic and technology. Its army green and bronze case complements Super-LumiNova inserts, which allow for easy visibility in all conditions. Noteworthy features include the engraving of a 1940s diver on the back, its extensive water resistance (up to 300 meters), and the interchangeable strap options—black rubber or khaki leather.
