Baselworld is a significant event in the world of watches, showcasing some of the most appealing models and brands. The newest watches featured by the exhibitors are exciting and appealing; these are watches that withstand the test of time and are renowned for their high quality and reinvented aesthetics.
A great watch does more than tell time; it boosts the appeal of workwear attire, adds a bit more to a simple t-shirt and jeans and is a symbol of your own style. It seems like we are always on the hunt for not only staple watches but also for fun, novel timepieces that are great for changing your wristwear up. Luxury Safes have chosen five exclusive luxury watches that you should see at Baselworld 2016.
Constant Force Tourbillon, Arnold & Son
The Arnold & Son brand has been esteemed since 1764, a featured brand in traditional English watchmaking. The Constant Force Tourbillon is visually timeless and sustains technically superlative features. The bold luxury watch is equipped with a constant force mechanism and true beat seconds. Mechanical hand-wound with a 90-hour power reserve, its utility is matched with well thought out materials. The strap is patinated brown bottier alligator and is hand-stitched, lending to the quality of the timepiece. Further, its case is in red gold and also features a domed sapphire crystal with multi-layer anti-reflective coating on both sides.
GC-3 Papaya, GC
GC have reinterpreted the famous words of poet Paul Eluard when he quoted that the earth is blue like an orange. Sporty and futuristically inspired, the GC-3 Papaya mixes the richness of a deep ocean blue along with the highlighted electric orange of its bright dial. The vivid colour combination is continued with its strap, which flaunts crocodile-patterned blue leather with orange seaming. A sturdy stainless steel case lends to this model’s reliability. Described by the brand as a true style signature, this model is a cool option if you are all about bright hues and graphic shapes.

Tourbillon Skeleton Earth, Armin Strom
The Tourbillon Skeleton Earth is interesting because the collection to which it belongs embraces the theme of the four elements. The natural steel with blue accents references water, whilst the pink gold and brown tones lend themselves to the element of fire. For air, lighter titanium was utilised and finally, the version in black PVD-treated steel plays on the element of earth. Coupled with the black hornback alligator leather featured in its strap, this authentic watch is true to its brand’s attention to detail. Whilst its look is undoubtedly detailed, the Armin Strom brand continues to focus on what they consider is the most important part of any watch- its movement.
Jules Borel Collection 160th Anniversary, Ernest Borel
Celebrating their impressive 160 anniversary, Ernest Borel have released a collection of ten authentic watches in honour of Jules Borel, the founder of this iconic watch brand. Referred to as a “contemporary expression of Ernest Borel’s rich history”, the Jules Borel Collection 160th Anniversary timepiece is sleek with its steel pink gold PVD treatment and anti-reflective sapphire crystal and transparent back. The brown alligator leather strap is also a novel touch to the past and is an adaptable colour for countless looks.
Classic Steel Armure, Mauron Musy
Inspired by the sealing systems used in mechanical engineering, Mauron Musy has incorporated such innovations to their watchmaking. The result of such innovation is that the Classic Steel Armure is devoid of any screws, glue or joints that require replacement during maintenance services. The luxury watch is also water-resistant to 100 metres and its maintenance involves just one movement service every seven years. The black and silver combination of the timepiece lends to its modern edge, highlighted by the scarlet accents on its dial.
