Let’s focus on THE summer’s novelty that Tudor presented in Basel this year.

Coincidence of calendars, before being informed of our participation in the Lamborghini Grande Giro, we had planned to continue our tour of the Baselworld 2013 novelties with Blancpain.

Here are a few Rolex watches that have particularly drawn our attention.
Here we are! Back from Basel and already preparing multiple articles on the subject.
