BaselWorld 2017 Instagram Teaser Trailer

BaselWorld 2017 
Rolex Instagram Teaser Trailer

BaselWorld is the epic event that occurs every years in Basel, Switzerland, where Rolex shows off its new watch models. I just noticed a teaser on Rolex's Instagram Page, and as much as I would love to speculate as to what it is, I'm afraid I have no idea. It seems Rolex is a little too good and cryptic at teasing...That's O.K., as we will soon see on March 22, 2017, and as always, I will have full coverage of the new Rolex models that will be showcased by Rolex.

Update: Mike from the Netherlands just wrote in and shared his insight:

Hello Jake,

First things first, you run a very good blog, and I always enjoy reading it. Thank you!

My thoughts about the teaser: 

It's a new sea dweller, you can see the index markers in the bezel at 5, 15, 25 etc...

Cheerio Mike

There is definitely some good logic behind Mike's idea that we are looking at a new SEA-DWELLER, as 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the launch of the SEA-DWELLER at Basel World in Switzerland. The think that throws me off is that the image on Instagram's teaser has a cyclops date magnifier, which no SEA-DWELLER has EVER had!?!! If Mike from the Netherlands is correct, it would mean that Rolex would have had to add a date magnifier to the SEA-DWELLER, which would be kind of weird...

The funny image below of the guy eating popcorn is how I always feel waiting for Rolex to introduce their new models at Basel World every year.
