2022 First Look & Reactions to Rolex, Tudor, and others!

By | May 8, 2022

The Geneva Watch Show is in full swing, which means that many of the world’s leading luxury fake watch brands have just unveiled their new models for 2022. With a total of 38 brands exhibiting, this year also happens to be the first year that Watches & Wonders Geneva can exist as a live event. It’s arguably the most exciting time of the year for collectors and enthusiasts alike, so here’s your official recap and overview of the most important new releases.
The biggest news from Rolex this year is the new stainless steel GMT-Master II 126720VTNR, which has a green and black bezel and a left-handed crown. However, the new Rolex Air-King 126900 has also received a lot of attention as it marks the first time the crown guard has appeared on a model from the Air-King collection. Other new additions to the Rolex sports replica watch collection include a yellow gold version of the Yacht Prestige 42, a new jeweled dial option for the white gold model, and a slightly modified version of the Deepsea model.
On the classic side of the Rolex catalog, there is a new platinum Day-Date model featuring a fluted bezel, as well as some new dial options for the 36mm and 40mm models. The Datejust collection also gets a range of new dials, consisting of an extension of the fluted and palm-patterned dial introduced last year, as well as a new diamond-set dial for the 31 mm model featuring a floral motif on its face.   8e2f916fc2520c605537b7eb9cd7095b
Unlike the Patek Philippe Pilot’s Travel Time, which debuted in 2018, the new Annual Calendar Travel Time 5326G lacks its sibling’s prominent pushers for a cleaner and more streamlined aesthetic. Patek Philippe is also introducing a new time and date version of its classic Calatrava model, which features the same aesthetics as the new Annual Calendar Travel Time model, with a grainy textured gray dial, syringe hands, and a smooth bezel.
When it comes to its annual releases, Panerai usually tends to focus on one of its collections each year, and it is the Submersible that gets the newest releases at the Geneva Watch Fair. The 44mm case of the new Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro is made of traditional stainless steel, the brand’s recyclable Steel, or its proprietary carbon-based Carbotech material.
The new 44mm submersible model falls between the current 42mm and 47mm watches, expanding the number of options and reinforcing Panerai’s commitment to sustainable materials. Panerai’s steel material has the same properties as traditional stainless steel, including the same chemical behavior, physical structure, and corrosion resistance. However, because the alloy is composed primarily of recycled materials, it is more sustainable than traditional steel, allowing Panerai to reduce its environmental impact.
A brand known as much for its jewelry as for its copy watches, Cartier has always produced elegant timepieces with unique designs that are emblematic of the brand. New models of classic fan favorites such as the Tank, Panthère, and Santos-Dumont have appeared, in addition to a number of new Cartier Pasha watches ranging from simple stainless steel models to complex references and even a model with a flying tourbillon.
