Baselworld is approaching towards the end of March and many mockups have released and overall speculation of what the most powerful and popular Basel brands will release. Last year, we saw the release of the extemely popular updated Rolex GMT MASTER II “Pepsi” - and a few minor changed to some models. Let’s take a peek into what Watch Addict has dug up for this year!

There has been a few times @Rolex, the official Instagram account of Rolex watches has mentioned the history of the 1016 Rolex Milgauss, and they might just be hinting at a new updated Milgauss with references to the vintage discontinued model from years ago. I think this would be a good move to revamp the Milgauss line as it has always kind of stood in the shadows of its’ larger sportier brothers.
Next in line pictured below would be the Darker “Coke” brother to the Rolex PEPSI that was released last year and is still nearly impossible to purchase at retail. It was a real hit, and seeing as Rolex likes money...Why wouldn’t they release a revised and modern Coke GMT MASTER II? It will of course feature the new jubilee bracelet and updated calibers with longer power reserves as well.
Thirdly, in my eyes...a more sensible release would be the addition of the revised movement to the GMT Black Ceramic models, except with the new Jubilee bracelet. I think this would really keep the fans on their feet and make us wait as usual for yet another year...and honestly it looks superb on a jubilee. One thing is for sure, if an authorized dealer can barely keep a standard GMT in stock - this one will likely fly off the shelves as well.
The last speculation would be a white dial Explorer I reference. The Explorer I is an iconic watch with a great deal of history behind Sir Edmond Hillary and Mt Everest - so why not add some flavor to the lineup?
The main component of a mechanical movement is the mainspring, a spring that gradually unwinds and transmits energy. A mechanical watch will keep accurate time despite requiring winding up if it's manual. ... Inside an automatic watch sits a small weighted rotor that has to oscillate in order to wind the mainspring.
