Best of Week 13: Lange, Bvlgari, Rolex and more Rolex - 2019/03/30 by Dale Vito

Hi guys!

Welcome back to our weekly segment that highlights a couple of interesting additions to our ever-expanding database.

For the past week I’ve been out-of-office for a couple of days, while the others were mostly spent updating our Rolex section with new models and new configurations – which means tons of new Datejust and Day-Dates for example. Still, in this week’s list there are no less than TWO highlights that are not Rolex! Impressive, no?

A. Lange & Sohne Kleine Lange 1 25th Anniversary

Even though this is only the fourth of a total of twelve limited edition watches celebrating the 25th anniversary of the resurrection of the A. Lange & Söhne brand, the formula already feels familiar. A bit too perhaps? This notwithstanding this petit Lange 1 is a stunner. And limited to only 25 pieces! LINK!

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Ceramic

I think the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo is a smashing watch not matter the material in which it is executed. The latest is this black ceramic one and it seems that once again the Roman-based manufacturer has hit a home run. LINK!

Rolex Datejust 36

Ok, so here we go with the Rolex. The Datejust 36 in stainless steel (topped of by a white gold bezel should you wish) was one of the BaselWorld 2019 novelties and it already comes in a wild number of configurations. One of my favs is one of the simplest – this 126200-0003 with a domed bezel, black dial and Jubilee-style bracelet. LINK!

Rolex Day-Date 36

Feeling lucky today? Why not ditch the Datejust 36 in favor of something a bit more, well, everything: the Day-Date 36. One of my favorites is this white gold 128239-0023, which has a fluted bezel and a blue vignette dial (which the R calls Ombré) with diamond-set hour markers. LINK!

Rolex Daytona

Whilst browsing the Rolex website it occurred to me that a couple of Daytona’s had gotten new reference numbers. I’m not sure what separates this new 116518LN-0047 from the earlier 116518LN-0039, but it still looks stunning! LINK!

BaselWorld 2018: Rolex - 2018/03/30 by Dale Vito

Over the past week I started uploading the Rolex Baselworld 2018 novelties, and it’s coming along quite nicely. In this post I’ll briefly go over the various models that are live in our database at the time of writing.

GMT-Master II

Rolex BaselWorld 2018 Novelties GMT Master


Star of this year’s BaselWorld is the GMT-Master. Four new variations are now in our database; three of which are of the new 12671X generation, plus the updated white gold which now features a blue dial. You’ll find them here;

Datejust 36

I also finished uploading all of the new Datejust 36 models, which for now exists in ‘Oystersteel’ paired with either yellow or Everose rose gold, with smooth, fluted or diamond-set bezel, with Oyster or Jubilee bracelet, and with a choice of dials. There’s quite a few in total and I won’t be posting the links to all of them – below you’ll rather find a link to the overview per metal / bezel combo.

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

Rolex BaselWorld 2018 Novelties Cosmograph Daytona

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona got an update this year – it’s now available in two Everose variations. I also started updating the Daytona section with a few configurations that are either new or were missing. I will go over this again hopefully this weekend. For now, enjoy the RBOW’s in full glory;

Rolex Sky-Dweller

Rolex BaselWorld 2018 Novelties Sky-Dweller New Dial

It seems that starting this year, all Sky-Dwellers now feature stick markers – no more Romans or Arabics. The white gold model is discontinued.

Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller

I added a couple of previously unseen (or new) Day-Date 40 configurations; new dial variations for the Oyster Perpetual in 34, 36 and 39mm; the same for the Datejust 41; and more. I’ll furthermore upload the Datejust 31 novelties ASAP. Anything missing, any additional info? Contact me!


Watchbase – a quick update - 2016/01/13 by Dale Vito

Oris Divers Sixty-Five Carl Brashear Limited Edition

Oris Divers Sixty-Five Carl Brashear Limited Edition


Alwin and Dion have been working on some new and exciting features for WatchBase: there is now a share button on each watch and caliber page, there is a ‘report data error’ button and we now have a separate information page for those interested in our data feed.

Arguably the most important new feature is the ‘report data error’ button. It allows you to send me an email directly when spotting an error in our watch and caliber databases. Please use it – it will help me keep our data as precise, up-to-date and exact as possible.

Besides Alwin and Dion’s work, I’ve of course been keeping busy uploading more watches. We now have a great catalogue of H. Moser & Cie watches, including the Swiss Alp Watch and many more. Our Rolex database now has 642 watches in it, including many rare variations the Daytona. And to kick of the day, I just uploaded the stunning Oris Divers Sixty-Five Carl Brashear Limited Edition.
