In Basel the engines are warming up for the start of the next edition of Baselworld 2018. 

Unlike some brands that have revealed some anticipations well in advance, Rolex leaves everyone on their toes until March 21, 2018, the date on which the gates of the Salone will open Basel 2018 with the day dedicated to the press, a place where some of the most acclaimed watch manufacturers including Rolex and Patek Philippe, will reveal the next creations and news for next year.

As usual, there are many "rumors”Including an increase in the sales price lists and some reinterpretations of some references - including the Explorer II and the Deepsea, in addition to a highly requested and unlikely news regarding the GMT Master II steel - but the Crowned manufacture di Geneva does not leave any official statement on the matter but reveals only a small news with the launch yesterday of a preview teaser.
