more watches from baselworld 2017!

Last week we detailed the new Rolex releases from Baselworld 2017, which you can read more about here. Though Rolex is the most common watch brand that we buy and sell at Jonathan’s Fine Jewelers, there are also several other great watch models from brands like Omega, Patek Philippe, and Hublot that were a hit!

As we’ve mentioned before, Baselworld is a great barometer for how the watch industry is going to be changing in the coming years. We saw several trends that included throwbacks to original watch models and simple additions like adding date functions to popular watches.

Here are more watches from Baselworld 2017:

Omega Seamaster 300

About the watch:

Originally offered by Omega in 1957, the Seamaster 300 was designed to be a functional watch for divers that worked underwater for long periods of time. This watch is water resistant up to 1,000 feet and has been a staple of the Omega lineup for decades.

What’s new for 2017?

Omega released what they are calling their “1957 Trilogy”, which consists of the Seamaster 300, the Railmaster and the Speedmaster. Omega has had a habit of releasing their new watches in trios (much like the moon watches of 2016).

It’s currently the 60th anniversary for the Seamaster 300, and Omega didn’t disappoint. They paid tribute to the original by keeping the overall look and feel the same, while adding new technology like the Master Chronometer 8806.

Retail price: Approximately $6,200


Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean

About the watch:

Also known as the Planet Ocean “Big Blue”, the newest Seamaster goes even deeper into the ceramic design trend that Omega has been pushing solidly for years. Obviously the color palate is striking, but the size of the watch is impressive as well.

The Big Blue features a 45.5 mm case, big-time water resistance of up to 2,000 feet, and a blue ceramic case with scratch-proof sapphire crystal that includes anti-reflective treatments on both sides.

What’s new for 2017?

This is a completely new model for this year’s Baselworld!

Retail price: Approximately $11,200


Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Year Tourbillon Chronograph

About the watch:

This watch was designed specifically by Ferrari’s head designer Flavio Manzoni to commemorate the car maker’s 70th anniversary. It was specifically designed to be a collector’s item, with three versions in either King gold, PEEK carbon, or Titanium.

Only 70 watches of each variety will be created for 2017, which makes the Techframe a very interesting watch for this year’s convention.

This is a new watch model for this year’s Baselworld convention!

Retail price: Approximately $130,709


Patek Philippe Millennials’ Nautilus Ref. 5168G

About the watch:

Long known as a sports watch in the Patek lineup, the “Aquanaut” was originally launched in 1997. This watch features a unique rounded octagon shape for the case and dial. Traditionally this watch has been offered with either a stainless steel band or the composite “Tropical” strap.

What’s new for 2017?

Patek definitely took the Aquanaut to a new level in 2017. The watch still has the familiar shape and overall look, but has been upgraded in terms of material and overall impact. The watch case is made from white-gold instead of stainless steel, and a new blue dial has been added in lieu of the older black dial.

Retail price: $34,800
