The recently concluded Baselworld 2017 in Switzerland saw the launch of many dazzling new watches and jewels. From Rolex’s flashy Yacht-Master 40 (which was encrusted with an array of colourful gemstones) to Hublot’s super stylish Classic Fusion Italia Independent timepieces adorned with fabric straps, the annual showcase certainly didn’t disappoint. It also played host to several stunning new releases by Dior, which included garden-inspired designs and a fresh spin on the brand’s iconic Mini D de Dior watch.
