98 new models?
Yes, but that is 98 new references (e.g. the same watch on a strap and a bracelet = 2 references)
Plus 2 different dials with strap and bracelet = 4 references, so I agree that the 98 number is a little misleading.
Even so... there must still be a lot we haven't seen. Let's say there's four variants of each, that's still 24 watches. And even if we include the watches that were released 'before' Baselworld (it may well be pronounced 'Baal' but no one's ever going to call it Baalworld are they) I'm still not getting 24.
We know there's a bronze Autavia, a GMT and a Calibre 5. We know there's 2 Calibre 16 Carreras, the Bamford Monaco, the Gulf Monaco, the two Aston Martin watches, and I guess there was a few ladies watches, what else?
There's also the Chinese Space Programme Heuer01 and Aquaracer that was released shortly before Baselworld!
Oh yes... good call.
But with different strap/bracelet options I guess you just counted like 10 new ones in the sentence below.
"We know there's a bronze Autavia, a GMT and a Calibre 5. We know there's 2 Calibre 16 Carreras, "
I suppose "some new lady models" also might add up to 10-20 versions, I have not looked into new lady models at all...
Last but not least dont forget about the beautiful lovely perfect Gulf F1
How many new watches did Omega present last year, counting in the same misleading way? Was it thousands? I want to say thousands and too lazy to Bing it
I guess the bronze will come on a brown strap and a blue strap and a black strap and a NATO... there were 5 ladies watches IIRC and there were 5 straps I think, so that's 25 watches!
Is there any word on production numbers of that Bamford Monaco? Will it only be limited in time or actually a limited and numbered edition?
Thanks Hubert, do you know if they’ll be numbered?
Just found a shot from the back. Indeed numbered. That on top of it having a completely new case, Bamford’s longtime carbon case dream and it being the first collaboration piece, the price seems very reasonable.

Nice review of the new Carrera GMT
Not a fan of the GMT Autavia 3-hander … but is that a brushed/polished Oyster-ish bracelet? If that bracelet comes out and mounts to the chronograph, I'm gonna move heaven and earth to get that bracelet for the chrono. The GF beads of rice just isn't my style. But this… this would work.
I'm still mystified by these two.
This one's hitting the stores next week apparently, so my local dealer says anyway...
