With the recent conclusion of Baselworld 2018, we’ve identified some of the timepieces that should definitely be on your radar this year.

Here are our top 5 picks for our favorite watches in Baselworld 2018:

  • CHOPARD L.U.C. QUATTRO
  • TUDOR BLACK BAY GMT
  • OMEGA SPEEDMASTER CK 2998 LIMITED EDITION
  • GLASHÜTTE SENATOR EXCELLENCE PERPETUAL CALENDAR

CHOPARD L.U.C. QUATTRO

It’s all about subtle sophistication with the L.U.C Quattro, starting with the sleek 18-carat rose gold case, polished bezel, and blue hour markers and hands. Despite its simplicity, the timepiece boasts a nine-day power reserve, as well as the Calibre 98.01-L — one of the original movements developed and produced by Chopard Manufacture.

Choose between a leather strap and the “riveted” bracelet inspired by TUDOR watches from the ‘50s and ‘60s.
