Baselworld 2017 has just wrapped up in Geneva and if you have been following our Instagram (@lofficielmalaysia), you'd have seen dozens of new timepieces our deputy editor John Ng has shared.

And amidst all the new timepieces, some stood out more than others and here, John highlights 5 newly released timepieces, from the likes of Chanel, Bulgari, Rolex and more, that you need to get on your wrists now.

 

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller

Designed for extreme performance, this Rolex classic gets not only a visual, but also a technical facelift. The stainless steel case is now 43mm in diameter compared to the previous version of 40mm.

For the first time, this model hosts a Cyclops lens at 3 o'clock to enhance the legibility of the date. And thanks to the middle case made of a solid block of corrosion-resistant steel, the new timepiece is water-resistant to a depth of 1,220 metres. 

Bulgari Lvcea Moon Phase

Despite the fact that many of the brand's new products are aimed at men this year, Bulgari did not forget its female fans. This is an obvious favourite.

With a light sprinkling of diamonds, the detailed moon phase crafted in the same metal as the case peeks out of from the sky whose background matches the integrated leather (ruby or aventurine). It's playful while sparkling with sophistication. 

Chanel Première Camélia Skeleton

Chanel marks the 30th anniversary of its Première series by giving it a new manufacture movement. This manually wound Calibre 2 is completely on display inside the watch.

And in keeping with the aesthetics of the Première line and the floral name, the movement can be seen through the beautiful skeletonisation designed to resemble the petals of a camellia flower.

Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5320G

The perpetual calendar has a long tradition in Patek Philippe. This reference is different as it injects a more youthful style into the collection while alluding to a grand past.

Inspired by museum watches from the 1940s and 1950s, the watch achieves a remarkable feat: it has a vintage appearance, yet it looks very modern.

 

Corum Lady Golden Bridge Round

Corum's Golden Bridge has been through many variations, case shapes and materials. Now, the watch brand returns with a new round collection.

Following the design codes of its predecessors, the combination of round case and gorgeously engraved and finished inline movement turns on its side complementing each other, while the extra embellishments surrounding the calibre inject colour, sparkle, shine and head-turning brilliance.
