A few new watches that I never covered here but are new for Baselworld this year...
Omega Speedmaster Mark II Reissue
The Omega Speedmaster Mark II reissue was the first Baselworld novelty from Omega (if you have been following watch news you will also know that they are planning to release the older-style 300m reissue). Unlike the original movement this new movement will be automatic and will feature the co-axial escape wheel. It will also come in a plainer version that will get rid of the orange.
Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity + Supercharged Pontos S
The Masterpiece Gravity is the newest addition to the ML Masterpiece collection. Originally announced in Mid-February this watch comes in two versions, both seen above. However, the special feature found on this watch is the use of silicon in the movement. The calibre (containing 188 pieces) has a silicon balance roller, lever, and escapement wheel.
The second ML in this post this is the Maurice Lacroix Supercharged Pontos S. Why supercharged?, because the size is larger, a lot larger, at 48mm in diameter. The regular Pontos S is 43mm in diameter. It uses an ETA Valgranges-based calibre that 37mm in diameter by itself.
The Blancpain Villeret, which was announced in early February, uses the automatic Blancpain caliber 1335. It has a grand feu enamel dial and the name comes from the birthplace of the manufacture. It's a very elegant watch.
