Asprey and Rolex exclusive London event: New Baselworld 2016 luxury watch collections

Renowned watch and luxury lifestyle blogger Anish (WatchAnish), synonymous for his Instagram success, cordially invited Mr. Woolfe to attend the strictly limited London event, labelled ‘The Future Classics Exhibition’.


The invite only event brought two iconic brands together, legendary luxury watch brand Rolex and the iconic British jewellery house Asprey across a two-day event held at Asprey’s New Bond Street store in early May. This was the first time Rolex had displayed its collections of it newest 2016 fleet within the UK. We were joined by various industry contacts, Rolex fans and prominent watch collectors who gave Q&A insights – Claude Sfeir and James Marks.


Which luxury watch to choose?

Mr. Woolfe got to try on all of the new collection, just a shame we could not take any of watches home and had to settle for the pre-order client lists! All of the unique timpieces that were on display were worthy of any dapper gentlemens wrist, though if we had to narrow the ranges down, the ones that we liked were:

Air-King – Revisiting the spirit of aeronautical heritage and homage to the original Rolex oyster. Black dial with oversize white gold 3, 6 and 9 numerals and sporting the distinctive Rolex logo in green and yellow.

Cosmograph Daytona – Born for speed, the racing icon now has a monobloc Cerachrom black bezel which comes in white “Stormtrooper” dial or the all black “Vader” style dial both on 904L steel Oysterlock bracelets. There are also the blingtastic all yellow gold with green dial and white gold with blue dial editions, both having red accents on the sub-dials.


Yacht-Master – Their emblematic nautical watch is jazzed up with a Chocolate sunray dial, 18ct Everose gold bezel and Rolesor combination steel and rose gold bracelet. The Platinum version bezel, gets a Rhodium sunray dial, with turquoise seconds hands which makes it look even more sporty and elegant.


Mr. Woolfe will definitely be reviewing these fantastic Rolex 2016 editions and aiming to add these to our portfolio of luxury watch rentals. Watch this space!
